876,708 Kenyans Thrown Into A Limbo After This Latest Ministry of Health Statement

The ministry of health in Kenya has thrown 876,708 Kenyans who had taken AstraZeneca Vaccine into a limbo following their latest statement. The government had directed that the lot would get their overdue second shot of AstraZeneca vaccine in May. Now the ministry has said there is no guarantee that this timeline shall be honored.

The ministry was expecting 2.5 million doses from COVAX situated in India. With the rising cases in India and trouble in movement logistics, COVAX released a statement saying that it is not in a position to send the second shipment to Kenya. This led to Narok Senator Ledama Olekina to ask Mutahi Kagwe the Health CS to tell Kenyans that there is no guarantee that they will ever get the second shot. A visibly angry Mutahi said he will not be forced by some people to be commenting about work or decisions in progress.

Mutahi Kagwe has however urged Kenyans to be patient as the government looks for ways to muddle through this melee. To be fair to the government, it is not their fault that the situation has worsened in India. The ministry is looking at other alternatives as it waits for the AstraZeneca vaccine.
