Initially, the vaccine against Covid-19 was to be given to people who were much exposed to the virus. These were all who worked as health workers and teachers above 50 years of age.
Right now, almost everybody is going for it. Teachers who have not reached 50 can’t wait any longer. They feel that they also need the vaccine. Some teachers and doctors have died of the virus and so people don’t want to take chances.
The old who were not among the categories mentioned for first priority have also raised their concern. The government has agreed to include them in the list for the first phase of vaccination.
This has made the queues unbearable. In some Covid-19 vaccination centres experiencing shortage of vaccine.
This comes after the President Uhuru Kenyatta led the country in getting the vaccine with his cabinet secretaries.
