December 21 has been set as the deadline for which all Kenyans who will not have received the vaccine will not have access to all government services.
According to the ministry, the exercise is not mandatory but the directives that were issued two weeks ago will be implemented to the latter.
"We have set that deadline very clearly and a long time ago to say that if you want to get on the train, if you want to go to a restaurant, if you want to go to a government office, if you want to get onto a plane, if you want to leave Kenya, you will have to be vaccinated." The CS of Health Mutahi Kagwe said.
In addition, Kagwe urged Kenyans to come out for vaccination when time is still there and avoid the last minute rush.
"For that reason, we are telling Kenyans, don’t wait for the last moment let’s not do the usual thing of waiting until the last minute for you to start rushing for your vaccine, the best time is now, the best time is the hour that you have to go and get vaccinated." He added.
Those who would have not been vaccinated by then will lose services like KRA services, education, immigration, hospital and prison visitations, NTSA and port services.
To ascertain their statement, the ministry announced that Kenyans will be required to provide proof of full vaccination when seeking transport services including domestic flights, the SGR and when boarding matatus and buses.
Drivers, conductors, boda boda riders, pilots and cabin crew are also required to get fully vaccinated and carry proof of vaccination at all times.
