The University Management together with the Machakos County Government has organized a Covid-19 vaccination exercise that will take place on Friday at the Athi River campus.
The exercise will run from 11am and priority will be given to staff above 50 years of age. However, others interested in receiving the vaccine are welcome to do so, regardless of their age.
“Let me remind all of us that this is voluntary as earlier stated by our VC when he took his vaccination a while back, and our government as well” said HR Manager, Pius Muia, in an email to Daystar staff.
Those willing to be vaccinated, including students, have been requested to register with the HR via email.
The Vice Chancellor Prof Laban Ayiro, had previously encouraged members of the Daystar community to get vaccinated, shortly after receiving his jab on March 23.
“Let us prop our bodies’ defense mechanism and immunity by taking the COVID-19 vaccine shot, even as we pray to God to build a hedge around our community, nation and the world at large,” said Prof. Ayiro.
