Uproar as Kenya Bans Private Covid-19 Vaccine Import

According to Narok Senator Health Cabinet Minister Mutahi Kagwe told the Senate Health Committee that Dinlars Pharm, the company that imported Sputnik Covid vaccine followed the due process of the law and was approved by the Pharmacy and Poisons Board and are free to roll out the vaccine.

Despite that the Government has banned private vaccine imports, health CS Mutahi Kagwe said any person advertising, vaccinating people at a fee risks prosecution. The Health CS added that the only agent for vaccination in Kenya will remain the government until further notice.

Kenya's ban on private sector importation and distribution of the Covid-19 Vaccine comes at a time when prominent people including City Lawyers Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Donald Kipkorir have already taken the first Jab of Sputnik V Covid-19 Vaccine.

The vaccines being used in Kenya have been cleared by two institutions; WHO and Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB). If a vaccine has not been cleared by WHO it will not be used in Kenya, whether it is being used in other countries or not.
