Less than 10% have had their vaccinations in Kenya

The Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe states that Kenyans will not be permitted to use bars and restaurants, or public transportation, starting 21 December.

They are designed to boost vaccination rates in advance of Christmas.

Current vaccination rates are less than 10%, or 6.4 million.

It takes less than a month for more than 20 million Kenyan adults to be vaccinated.

AstraZenaca is Kenya’s most popular vaccine. The two required doses of vaccine must be administered at least six weeks apart.

While Mr Kagwe could not elaborate on how to overcome these challenges, he stated that a 10-day vaccination campaign will begin in November. The goal is for 10 million people to be vaccinated before December ends. Kenya is home to approximately 50 million people. At least 40% are children.

The Kenyan government believes it is able to inoculate its citizens despite concerns about vaccine shortages in some African countries.

Out of 10.7 millions it received, only 6.4 Million jabs have been administered.

The company anticipates another eight million doses.
