Kenya has received an additional 907,200 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The consignment, which arrived at JKIA on Wednesday evening, was a donation from the MasterCard Foundation.
The country also received 7.5 Million special syringes meant for the administration of the Pfizer vaccine. We expect 4 million vaccines soon so the syringes are in readiness for that.

Between now and the end of December the government expects 8 million more vaccines on top of the 10.7 million already received.
The government is also procuring 13 million doses of Johnson and Johnson through the Avant mechanism and in early December we expect another 1.6milion of Johnson and Johnson.
The MOH, therefore, appeals to all eligible Kenyans to turn out at our approved sites and get vaccinated. There are enough vaccines in the country.
