Kenyans who received the first dose of covid-19 vaccine have a reason to smile after the government delivered some good news today. The second dose will kick off on Friday as per the state reports. This is a good move by the government to it's people. Several residents were in confusion concerning the second jab after the state stopped the importation of some vaccines that had already been administered.
The fight against covid-19 virus has not been easy in Kenya. Out of about 50million residents, only bless than two million individuals have so far received the first dose of the vaccine. The process is targeting some selected groups currently, with major vaccination process expected later. Those who were listed for the first jab are; Health workers who are working on Frontline in stopping the spread, second are teachers who are currently handling students in several schools across the country. The other group are military men and old age people who are prone to attacks due to low immunity.
Currently, the country is fighting what is being seen as the forth wave of the infection. Cabinet secretary Honerable Mutahi Kagwe has warned Kenyans of a possible fourth wave that might hit the country hard. Some of the areas which are seen as the hotspot now is Kisumu county. The county is regestaring high numbers as compared to Nairobi which was seen as dangerous spot few months ago.
