The ministry of Health this evening revealed bad news to Kenyans who had received the first dose of COVID-19 Astrazeneca and are still waiting to get their second jab. The government had earlier planned to give the second jab earlier in May through to June but it soon postponed the exercise for more than 12 weeks to those who had not received the vaccine for the second time.
According to NTV News, the government through the ministry of Health does not have enough vaccines to administer to all individuals who received the first dose. Only a few Front line health workers and other few emergency service providers have received the second booster dose in the recent weeks and the scarcity of the vaccine will mean that other people will have to wait longer. This is not how the ministry of Health had planned earlier because everyone who had received the first dose was to receive the second dose about 8 weeks to 12 weeks later
This delay is not convenient for those seeking to travel as they must have evidence of a full dose immunization and this makes them seek alternative means should the government delay further in doing this exercise.
