What you need to know:

  • The county is targeting to vaccinate 4, 500 frontline workers, with each having two doses in a span of eight weeks.
  • The vaccine is being administered at the Coast General Teaching and Referral Hospital and Kaderboy health facility.

Rising concerns over the safety of Covid-19 vaccine coupled with poor information on the vaccination drive has contributed to low uptake among health workers at the Coast region.
