Ministry of Health yesterday announced that the third roll-out Covid-19 vaccination would resume today.
Initially, the communication by the health ministry indicated that Covid-19 vaccination was set to resume on Monday, however, a last minute developed caused a change in program as the roll-out was set for today.
Basing on the Ministry of Health Communications Officer Emmanuel Ainebyoona, the process was delayed as the Ministry waited for KCCA to acquire the vaccines from National Medical Stores and further distribute them to other vaccination centers.
“I am informed by @KCCAUG that they are currently handling the administrative processes of dispatching the vaccine doses to the vaccination centres. The exercise will resume tomorrow morning not today as earlier communicated. Apologies for the inconvenience caused” read Mr. Ainebyoona’s tweet.
