    COVID-19 Vaccines to Save Lives

    The Kenyan government alongside the ministry of heath has called upon Kenyans from all walks of life, to get vaccinated against Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and save lives. This comes barely one year after the country received vaccines donations from different parts of the world.

     

    Statistics published in the Ministry of Health website show that 6.1 % of Kenyans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, while 2.2 % have been fully vaccinated, with the elderly, frontline workers and people with special health conditions given priority.

     

    Importance of getting vaccinated

    The center for Disease Control and Prevention advocates for the administration of vaccines to protects individuals from the variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 hence reduce COVID-19 related deaths, and combat it’s spread. However, those that are fully vaccinated are advised to wear face masks while in public.

     

    How to access the vaccine

    Kenyans can access AstraZeneca, ‎Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson and Moderna vaccines free of charge at different health care facilities in their respective counties. The first step is registering your details on  https://portal.health.go.ke/by selecting an identification type (ID, Passport, Birth Certificate, Alien ID or Military ID) then submitting your identification number, email address, telephone number. The sign-up process comes to an end after setting a password that can be used to access the portal.

     

    Ones this is done, visit any hospital facility to receive your first doze.

     

    Possible side effects of the vaccines

    People experience different side effects depending on the vaccine administered and the body’s immune system. Some of the reported side effects include; fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, diarrhea and pain on the arm.

    Blessed is the Hand that Giveth

    Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work, we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

     

    The word of God teaches us on the importance of supporting the vulnerable by providing them with food, clothes, education, medication and a place they can call home. This not only helps improve someone’s life from dependency to self-reliance, but also boosts the country’s economy.

     

    How Jesus helped the poor

    Jesus showed mercy to the poor in several instances as written in Bible, he gave sight to the blind, touched the leper and healed the sick. He interacted freely with the poor and people that were neglected by the community.

     

    Verses that talk about helping the poor

    Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, "Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you"—when you already have it with you. Proverbs 3:27-28

     

    Give generously to [the poor] and do so without a grudging heart, then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore, I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land. — Deuteronomy 15:10-11

     

    Today’s word teaches us to take care of the vulnerable, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic that has seen many people loose their livelihood.

    Indian COVID-19 Variant in Kenya

    The detection of the Indian COVID-19 variant in Kenya has left several people in limbo, especially at the time when most Kenyans were in relaxation mode, owing to the reduction of the COVID-19 cases in the country. It was business as usual for several people, trying to make ends meet and recover the lose they incurred last year. The economy was slowly opening up, students resumed physical learning, curfew hours ranged from 10:00 pm to 4:00am while lockdown in the affected counties, was lifted.

     

    Transmission

    Just like the commonly known COVID-19 virus, the Indian variant is transmitted when cough and sneezing droplets of an infected person gets into contact with another person, through the nose, mouth or eyes.

     

    Signs and symptoms

    High temperatures

    Persistent cough

    Loss of taste and smell

     

    Prevention

    Get vaccinated

    Eat healthy food

    Put on your face mask properly

    Maintain social distancing when visiting crowded places

    Sanitize your hands with alcohol-based sanitizer or wash them with soap and clean, running water

    Avoid shaking hands

     

    Kenya has recorded several cases of the Indian COVID-19 variant, over the past two months, with the number of infected patients increasing tremendously this week, and counties from the lake region being the most affected, after hosting the 58th Madaraka day celebration, on 1st of June.
