I have my doubts about it - CS Kagwe not satisfied with Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine

Why CS Kagwe is not convinced with the 90% Covid vaccine

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe during a virtual session with the Senate Health Committee

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday revealed that he has his reservations with the newly released Covid-19 vaccine.

In a meeting with the Senate Health Committee, CS Kagwe relayed the details of the Pfizer/BioNTech SE drug which he found unlikely.

"Personally, I have doubts about it because Pfizer stated that the vaccine stops a person from getting the virus. I'd like to know how, first of all, they identify who is likely to get infected with the virus.

"I'm inclined to accept a mode of treatment where the vaccine lowers the potency of the virus and maybe lowering the risk of the disease being fatal. What I have my reservations about, is a drug which purports to have prevented a person from getting infected, how do they know who is likely to get infected?" the CS explained.

CS Kagwe further noted that it would take up to four years for a vaccine to be produced en-masse for the whole world.

BNT162b2 Covid-19 vaccine

According to a brief posted by the drug makers, participants without evidence of prior SARS-CoV-2 infection showed a more than 90% success rate with the drug.

The vaccine labelled as BNT162b2 was administered in two doses and participants monitored at seven days after receiving the vaccine and also at the 14-day mark.
