Kitui South legislator, Hon Rachael Kaki Nyamai has urged teachers to go for Covid-19 vaccines following fears that schools may be susceptible to the virus.
Kaki’s sentiments comes a day after Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said there are enough vaccines for teachers across the country, including the support staff.
She said it is necessary for teachers to take the jab to curb the spread of infections in learning institutions. Experts say many children are asymptomatic.
“We are witnessing increased infections in schools but in spite of that, as your MP I have taken the jab, so dont be afraid,” said Kaki.
Kaki was speaking at Winguluni Primary school in Ikanga during a development tour courtesy of NG-CDF Kitui South.
