By Fatiha Shabir
The Vice Chancellor Professor Laban Ayiro, has encouraged the Daystar community to get vaccinated after receiving his jab of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on Tuesday at the Kenyatta Hospital.
“…I encourage members of the Daystar University community, particularly those who are vulnerable and predisposed to get vaccinated,” read a statement from his office.
“Let us prop our bodies’ defense mechanisms 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.”
The vaccine is reported to be available in all county government health facilities, and are being administered for free to people in the priority risk groups.
The Country is now experiencing the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic with increasing number of cases, hospitalizations and death.
This had led to the President announcing new Covid-19 restrictions including partial lockdowns and suspension of physical learning.
Counties of Nairobi, Machakos, Kiambu, Kajiado and Nakuru were declared disease infected areas, and cessation of movement in and out of this zone was announced.
