Kenya has been administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses countrywide since it received the first batch to fight the war against the COVID 19.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses have been administered at the Kenyatta National Hospital and Mbagathi hospital.
According to the health ministry, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single-shot vaccine that is easily stored at 2 to 8 degrees centigrade during administration. The vaccine can also be frozen at minus 20 degrees to ensure months of shelf life.
However, on Monday, the government announced that Kenya has run out of the single-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The Government is however hopeful that Kenya will receive more doses of Johnson and Johnson in the coming months.
