This is a carefully considered measure to help in curtailing the spread of the deadly Covid-19 infections witnessed in recent days.
Following the example set by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta and Cabinet Secretaries, I will lead Nairobi City County Executives in participating in the Covid-19 vaccination exercise from tomorrow. The Covid-19 vaccine is a great step towards the fight in the spread of the virus. The World Health organization (WHO) has approved distribution and use of various vaccines, let us get vaccinated and fight this invisible enemy. Stay safe by adhering to set Covid- 19 protocols of regularly washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing.
