Today the government through the ministry of health banned the importation and use of the Russian vaccine Sputnik which is believed to have been imported by a private investor into the currently. This latest move by the government leaves many Kenyans who had earlier on received the jab questioning their next move. This is because the jab is administered twice after a given period just like the AstraZeneca which is recommended by the government.
However the ministry of health through the cabinet minister Mutahi Kagwi has revealed that there is no cause for alarm since those who had received the jab will receive the second session in due time. He further reiterated that the Covid-19 vaccine should be given freely and should not be charged.
The conversation on who imported the Sputnik vaccine continues to be raging debate even as the ministry insists that the efficiency of the Sputnik jab is still in question since it has not been recommended by the WHO.
