A ten-year-old boy is recovering from his his Kimana home, Kajiado county after he was attacked by a rabid dog on Monday.  

The father of the minor, Isaak Sayioki, told the KNU on Wednesday that doctors at Loitokitok sub-county hospital could not admit his son after he was attacked because they had no anti-rabies vaccines.

“They told me that they have never had anti-rabies vaccines in the hospital and that I should seek assistance from private clinics in town. I was forced to go to Kimana town, some 15 km away to Tunza Clinic, where my son was given a tetanus injection, pain killers and anti-rabies vaccination,” said Sayioki.

He was charged Sh7500 for the drugs and injections and he will visit the clinic for the next three days to receive more injections of the anti-rabies vaccine.

“His condition is now better, but I am shocked that a Level 4 county government hospital could miss such essential vaccines,” lamented Sayioki.

When we contacted the Loitokitok medical officer of health, Dr Jean Abuya, she denied claims that Sayioki was sent away with his child, adding that he could only have been advised to buy the vaccines from private clinics because the hospital had none.

Abuya promised to address the matter fully once she gets back to her station, adding that she had been away this week in Machakos for a workshop.
