As of yesterday, the 27th of June the country’s positivity rate stood at 11.4% with 232 people testing positive. Vaccination apathy and refusal to social distance and mask up seem to be the main factor contributing to the rise of the numbers.
To increase vaccine access and uptake in the country, the Ministry of Health Kenya, and Amref Health Africa through a joint partnership have launched a Mobile Vaccination Clinics. Speaking during the launch on Monday, the Health Principal Secretary Susan Mochache said, “We want to take this opportunity to reiterate the importance of us to be vaccinated to prevent the severe COVID19 disease and its associated deaths. Vaccination remains to be the most important Vaccination remains the most important strategy for preventing severe illness and death where COVID19 is concerned.”
The fleet of movable clinics will take COVID-19 vaccines and other health services to communities with no access.
