Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has tested positive for Covid-19 days after being vaccinated against the virus.
Kidero confirmed that he got vaccinated against Covid-19 on March 29,2021.
He says the rest of his family members tested negative and that he will be undergoing a total and complete isolation for the next two weeks.
“I advise our team members, whom I’ve been in contact with to go and have themselves tested for COVID immediately. It’s my appeal to Kenyans to continue observing the ministry of health protocols on COVID; wear masks, wash hands with soap and clean, flowing water, use alcohol based hand sanitizers and get vaccinated,” he advised.
According to the Ministry of Health, Covid-19 vaccination does not prevent one from contracting the coronavirus.
In a press briefing on March 19, 2021, Health Ministry CAS Dr. Mercy Mwangangi said the vaccine only serves to boost the immune system and get it ready to fight the virus.
