Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) in charge of labour Patrick Ntutu has called on the Narok residents to voluntarily go for the Covid-19 vaccination to help in curbing the spread of disease.
Ntutu dismissed rumours that the vaccine was not safe for human beings reiterating that thorough research had been carried out and ascertained it is safe.
He spoke at Narok town Anglican Gospel Church (AGC) during a church service that was also attended by Narok Governor Samuel Tunai and a host of Members of the County Assembly (MCAs).
The CAS told the congregants that the government was keen to get enough doses for everyone asking residents to take advantage of the free vaccination programme that ongoing at the referral hospital.
He called on the church to continue praying for God to intervene and wipe out the pandemic that has claimed many lives and threatened many livelihoods.
“We have seen many people quitting their businesses because of the effects of Covid-19. We urge the church to intensify prayers to help in eradicating the disease,” he said.
Over 10, 000 persons have already received the first and second doses of Covid-19 vaccine that is being offered at Narok County Referral and Kilgoris Level four hospitals.
A majority of those vaccinated include security officers, health workers, teachers and the elderly.
On his part, Governor Tunai called on Narok residents to be vigilant and ensure all learners report back to school after the midterm break.
Tunai said the county would be rolling out a Sh. 70 million bursary this week that will be given to the needy deserving students to support their studies.
