Despite all these, the world has been able to counter this enemy of humanity thanks to the discovery of various vaccines by several institutions across the world . Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are some of them which are widely used by almost all countries .

Kenya recieved its first batch of Pfizer vaccine on Friday last week which were to be distributed to various vaccination centres across the country. However, there has been a delay in its administration according to latest reports from today's Star Newspaper.

This is due to lack of specialised syringes which are essential for the administration of this type of vaccine.
