Uproar From Kenyans, After Ministry Of Health's Latest Warning On Covid-19 Vaccines Auctioning

With the efforts to combact the Covid-19 pandemic still in place, the goverment through the ministry of health has already administered about 948,980 doses to her citizens [As per 20th May 2021] however, the process seems to have suffered a big challenge following the halt of the Oxford-AstraZeneca doses by India which has in turn resulted the doses already received almost running out.

While giving a press brief on the daily Covid-19 cases in the country, the CS for Health, Hon. Mutahi Kagwe assured Kenyans who had received the first jab of the vaccine to stay calm, since there were plans for the country to receive at least 150,000 AstraZeneca vaccines from Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC] and also at least 1M doses of Jansen and Jansen vaccines from USA [This is after USA announced distribution of at least 60M doses of the vaccines to the needy countries of the world].

However, the ministry of health has yet again issued a stern warning following allegations that vaccines are being charged for administration, saying that hoever who will be got in the act shall face the wrath of the law.

The warning as issued through their official twitter account, just some moments ago has received an uproar from Kenyans on twitter. A number of them seem unnsatisfied by the way the goverment is distributing the doses, while others who had already received the first dose already worrying about what will happen next following the run out of the shipment.
