Summary

  • But health Cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe said vaccine plants in the Kenya pipeline including the Moderna’s would also produce other vaccines.
  • Mr Kagwe ruled out concerns that the production glut of Covid-19 vaccines could derail Kenya's and the rest of Africa's plan to build vaccine plants.
  • Moderna said earlier in March it expects to invest about $500 million (Sh57.5 billion) in the Kenyan vaccines manufacturing facility.
