UNICEF has announced details of a mammoth operation to deliver Covid 19 vaccines to Kenya and other developing nations.The agency says that it has contacted more than 350a airlines and freight companies to deliver one billion syringes and vaccines.

At least 500 million syringes will be delivered ahead of the vaccines next year. This will be the largest operation ever conducted by the agency. The announcement came as more research centers, including the University of Oxford, announced promising results of a vaccine.

The cost of a vaccine

Kenyans could pay ksh327 each to get a dose of the Covid 19 vaccine developed by pharmaceutical film AstraZeneca and University of Oxford. The other vaccines from Pfizer will cost about ksh2,180($20) a dose, while Moderna's is priced between ksh1635($15) and ksh2725($25) based on the agreements the film struck with the US government. However, all these three vaccines have to be approved by regulators before they are administered.

The Kenyan ministry of health will also make evaluations on the vaccines. Health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe told the nation that the government has not made a commitment to take any vaccines." We will explore all options," Mutahi Kagwe said.

In summary

1. All vaccines bought by the Covax facility will be sold at about ksh300($3) to all developing nations. This gives hope to low income earners who will be able to afford a dose of the vaccine.

2. The announcement came as more research centers, including the University of Oxford, Anno promising results of their vaccine trials.
