2 lawyers become first Kenyans to receive Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine

The Russian embassy had issued a cautionary note on vaccine

Kenyans have started receiving the Russian Covid-19 vaccine, Sputnik V.

Announcing their inoculation, Nairobi-based lawyers Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Donald Kipkorir became the first Kenyans to receive the vaccine.

"Today, I became the Second Kenya to take the Russia COVID-19 Sputnik V vaccine. I have full confidence in the vaccine to protect me from all COVID-19 variants," Kipkorir stated shortly after receiving the jab.

The Russian Embassy in Kenya had earlier in the day issued a cautionary note on how the vaccine will be availed to Kenyans.

In a statement, the Embassy conveyed that the vaccine will be sold commercially by those who have imported it.
