Kenya will receive 72,000 Covid-19 vaccines from the Covax facility this week.
In late March this year, South Sudan received 132,000 Astra Zeneca doses from Covax
South Sudan will re-distribute these vaccines to Kenya after the country’s health officials said they could not use the jabs before expiry date
South Sudan Minister Mayen Machout said they could not use the jabs before their expiry date because of delays by parliament to approve the use of the vaccine.
Dr Machout said “We also noticed that some health workers did not want to get vaccinated and a lot of time was spent training people how to give the jabs,”
South Sudan will be left with 52,000 doses that it hopes to use before they expire on 18 July
