In an effort to vaccinate at least half of the adult Kenyan population by the end of the year, the Government through the Ministry of Health has distributed vaccines to various centres across the country.

In line with this, the Government launched the Chanjo Kenya portal for all Kenyans to aid in the COVID-19 vaccination process. On the portal, Kenyans can access different services such as registration, checking available vaccination sites, downloading the COVID-19 certificate, etc.

On 31st July, 2021 Kenya received 410,000 doses of the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, in Nairobi. The vaccines were donated by the United Kingdom Government and transported by UNICEF. This donation was followed by a further donation of 407,000 doses from the UK via the COVAX facility, and 880,460 Moderna vaccines earlier this month.

In Kenya, the roll out of the national vaccination campaign is being led by the Ministry of Health, with support from WHO, UNICEF, Gavi and other partners.

In Kiambu, the following health facilities in different sub-counties are currently offering the first and second doses of the Oxford AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
