Kenyans holding out for ‘better’ second jab warned
About 100,000 Kenyans have not yet got a second dosage of the Covid vaccination and many are believed to be waiting out for the introduction of alternative vaccines considered to be more effective.
The chairman of Kenya’s vaccination task group warns that many Kenyans risk getting seriously sick with Covid-19 if they postpone obtaining their second shots.
The task group said the nation will not mix and combine any of the vaccines available, since there is little evidence on how successful it would be.
Until recently, AstraZeneca has been the only vaccination accessible in Kenya. However, supplies of Moderna have already arrived, and Pfizer and other vaccines are on the way.
But the task group is clear that no one will be able to select the vaccination they get.
It is urging people to reject the idea that certain vaccinations are better than others.
Out of the two million Kenyans who have been vaccinated, fewer than 50 percent are completely jabbed. The nation has gotten 3.6 million immunizations to far.
Kenya is presently witnessing a rise in coronavirus cases. This is partially blamed on politicians conducting demonstrations despite a prohibition on political meetings, as well as the broad distribution of the Delta version, according to the health minister.
