COUNTY LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO ACCELERATE COVID-19 VACCINATION

The County Government of Uasin Gishu, Department of Health Services on Tuesday launched a 10-day COVID-19 vaccination campaign that targets to increase access to COVID-19 vaccination and ensure a bigger number of residents are vaccinated.

According to Health Services County Executive Committee Member for Health Services Dr Everlyn Rotich, over the past weeks, the number of new COVID-19 cases in Africa has increased prompting the department to come up with measures of ensuring many people are vaccinated to increase immunity.

On her part, National Vaccine Programme Officer Everlyne Etemesi said the vaccination program is targeting 2.3 million people in 24 counties in Kenya, adding that they have lowered the target age population to 12 years. She urged all residents to take action and come out and get vaccinated.
