Kenya issues stern warning to those selling Covid-19 vaccines

Through the Ministry of Health, the Kenyan government has urged Kenyans to go for Covi-19 jabs only at the Ministry's designated places.

The Ministry told Kenyans to be wary of illegal vaccination stations noting that the administration of any vaccine should be done by a qualified and duly registered clinician or nursing staff.

"There are those carrying out health camps with stolen vaccines. This is not going to be tolerated. Because it is our own people we are endangering,” said Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

"Those staff must also have received recent training on vaccination administration. Any other person doing so will be violating the law," Kagwe added.

Issuing Covid-19 updates in Nairobi on Monday, August 30, Kagwe raised the alarm over the emergence of facilities selling the vaccines to the public.

Mr. Kagwe said the Covid-19 jab should be administered free of charge, accusing those who charge of committing a criminal offence.

He told Kenyans not to pay even a single penny for the vaccines.

Kagwe further ordered the Kenya Medical and Dentist Board to deregister all facilities charging for Covid-19 vaccination.

"Let them vaccinate you and refuse to pay. At which point, you should report so that we can deregister the institution," he added.
