Kapkoni said they have rolled out the exercise in a way that those needing to be vaccinated will not require to travel far to get this voluntary service.

The county department of health has advised all the elderly seeking the voluntary covid-19 vaccine to avail themselves in all the county’s hospitals.

The county director of medical services, Dr Ezekiel Kapkoni, said Tuesday that already vaccination centres are set up at Kitengela, Loitokitok, Magadi and Ngong sub-county hospitals.

Kapkoni also said the county referral hospital in Kajiado town is providing vaccination for the covid-19.

Within this week, Kapkoni said, the elderly wishing to get the jabs will receive them in Mashuru, Isinya, Kimana, Namanga, and Ongata Rongai.

Politician Daniel Osoi, a resident of Imaroro, had earlier expressed dismay about the exercise failing if the vaccination exercise will not be spread across the county.

Kapkoni said most of those being vaccinated in Kitengela are residents of Nairobi, Machakos and Kajiado counties.
