The county assembly today released its staff to take COVID-19 jab as fear of new variant is reported to have been felt across the region.

All the employees were allowed to visit the Kajiado referral hospital between 12.30 pm to 2 pm.

The Assembly Clerk, Leboo Saisa, offered the staff transport to the health facility to enable the success of the mass vaccination. Saisa said the exercise is aimed at ensuring the full resumption of the operations in the county assembly.

On Thursday, the county assembly service board chairman Johnson Osoi through an internal memo informed the staff of the arrangement for a mass vaccination exercise to take place on Friday. 

“You are all required to avail yourselves for the exercise to enable appropriate plans for full resumptions of the Assembly,” said Osoi in a note to the staff.

He told the staff to take the exercise seriously irrespective of whether they are taking their first or second Covid-19 doses. 

This follows the directive by the head of the public service, Joseph Kinyua, through a circular that some public servants have “deliberately” avoided getting vaccinated.

Kinyua claimed those avoiding vaccination are doing that so they can stay away from work under the guise of working from home. 

“This has negatively affected service delivery to the public,” he said. The head of the public service emphasized that all civil servants will be a priority in the ongoing vaccination exercise.

The assembly, therefore, is leading other government institutions to ensure effective and efficient service delivery as it gears to the full resumption of its operations. 

Most government institutions scaled down operations for more than one year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that has led to millions of deaths globally.
