UoN’s USAID Fahari ya Jamii project took part in the Nairobi accelerated COVID-19 vaccination campaign launch at Kibra Level 3 Hospital on Thursday, 2nd June 2022. The campaign targets to have at least 70% of the population in Nairobi vaccinated in the next six weeks. Currently, 48.9% (1,492,877) of the population in Nairobi is fully vaccinated against a targeted population of 3,052,494 persons.
UoN’s USAID Fahari ya Jamii is supporting the Nairobi Metropolitan Services to raise vaccination coverage in Nairobi from 47.2% to 70% by administering 3.6 million doses, including booster shots. In addition, the project aims to reach out to more than 200,000 non-vaccinated individuals to ensure that they are vaccinated. Young adults, whose vaccination rates are now the lowest, are targeted to reduce their likelihood of infecting the older population.
