This latest move by the government leaves many Kenyans who had earlier on received the jab questioning their next move.

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.
