ealth acting director general Patrick Amoth has received the first jab in the country for Covid-19.

Dr Amoth, referred to as recipient 001, received the jab at the Kenyatta National Hospital on Friday.

Addressing the press after his shot, Dr Amoth said heaviness in the arm or a slight headache are some of the mild side effects of the jab.

The vaccination targets 10 healthcare workers drawn from different high risk departments of the hospital such as the ICU, Dental care unit, potters and security personnel.

“We will use the vaccines as training that will be disseminated to counties,” said Dr Richard Aya, who is leading the vaccination process at KNH.
