Kenyan troops in Somalia get COVID-19 vaccine
Kenyan troops in Somalia under the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM)have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
This is part of the ongoing vaccination that started with senior officers at the Defence headquarters in Nairobi.
It is also part of the government’s efforts to ensure essential workers, including troops deployed under the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom), are protected against the deadly pandemic.
The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) on Saturday said on its social media pages that the exercise was launched by its Director of Medical Services Major Gen (Dr) George Ng’ang’a.
The Covid-19 vaccination exercise for Sector II was conducted at the headquarters in Dhobley.
“This is part of the ongoing Phase 1 of the national immunisation programme in the fight against Covid-19,” said KDF in the post on Saturday.
