Travellers from European and American countries will be required to provide proof of vaccination before entry into Kenya. Proof of vaccination will be required before admission to tourist spots across the nation.
From December 21, the Ministry of Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has said anyone requesting in-person government services must be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination.
In order to accelerate vaccination, the Ministry in collaboration with County Governments and other stakeholders will be undertaking a ten-day mass vaccination exercise from November 26 with the aim of administering adequate vaccines to as many people as possible ahead of the deadline.
“Nobody said vaccination is mandatory..but if you want government services you have to be vaccinated,” said Kagwe.
Such services will include KRA services, Education, Immigration Services, Hospital and Prison visitation, NTSA, and Port services amongst others
All motorable operators including Drivers, Conductors, Bodaboda riders, Pilots, Air Hostesses, and others working in the sector will also be needed to be fully vaccinated and carry verification proof at all times.
