GOVERNOR LEADS NANDI RESIDENTS IN THE ROLL OUT OF COVID-19 VACCINATION
Governor Stephen Sang was administered with his first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine this morning at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
So far, 268 frontline workers have been vaccinated. This includes healthcare workers, teachers and national government Administrators.
“It is vitally important that we do our part to instill confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine within our local communities. As a County, we remain dedicated to providing outreach and education about the vaccine. This includes offering a variety of opportunities for residents to get their questions and concerns answered so they may make an informed decision when it’s their turn to roll up their sleeve and get vaccinated, said Governor Sang after receiving the jab.
“Seeing more of our people get vaccinated is exciting and means that we are on the road to getting back to normal. In the meantime, it’s important to keep following public health best practices like wearing a mask, washing your hands regularly and practicing physical distancing – that’s how we’ll get back to normal faster,” he added.
The county government is targeting to vaccinate 12,500 people in the first phase.
“We applaud the Governor’s work to lead our County through the challenges the pandemic has brought and for his leadership throughout the vaccine roll out. We are, most certainly, all in this together,” said the CECM for Health Ruth Koech.
The County Government of Nandi, is committed to deliver the COVID-19 vaccines into the Sub Counties to ensure easy, efficient access, and are doing so through the expanded network of health facilities across the county.
