Patrick Amoth becomes first Kenyan to get COVID-19 jab
Patrick Amoth became the first Kenyan to receive the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in Kenya following a massive exercise that was rolled out across the country.
Amoth is the acting Director-General for Health, and received the jab at the Kenyatta National Hospital on Friday, March 5.
The rollout of the campaign comes a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta flagged off the distribution of the vaccine across the country.
According to the ministry of health, the first phase of the vaccination exercise will run until June with a target of 1.2 million Kenyans while the second phase of the exercise will target an additional 9.6 million people.
