The Cabinet Secretary for Health, Mutahi Kagwe has warned health workers against colluding with outsiders to issue them vaccines without authority from the Ministry of Health. He revealed that those health workers who will be caught will be subjected to disciplinary action.

He also urged health facilities to account for all doses received, administrated and those remaining. Facilities that cannot answer accountability questions risk being delisted.

Speaking at Afya House when he issued a Covid 19 update, the CS said healthcare teams are trained to ensure the maintenance of the cold chain system and potency of the vaccine.

Therefore the Health Cabinet Secretary has urged Kenyans not to pay to be vaccinated for Covid 19. Further, CS Mutahi Kagwe added that only the Health Ministry and the county health teams are responsible for vaccination drives.

"If they ask you to pay for the vaccine, take the vaccine then refuse to pay." The Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said.

Kagwe warned those health workers selling or administering Covid 19 vaccines outside the Health Ministry designated sites that they risk being prosecuted.

Therefore vaccines that are not stored and transported per the established protocols are likely to loose potency and will not be of use to those who receive such vaccination.
