Kenya secures $130 million for COVID-19 vaccines

On 28 June, the government of Kenya secured financing for the Kenya COVID-19 Health Emergency Response Project to facilitate affordable and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for Kenyans. This additional financing will enable Kenya to procure more vaccines via the African Vaccine Acquisition Task Team  initiative and COVAX. It will also support the deployment of those vaccines by boosting Kenya’s cold chain storage capacity—including establishing 25 county vaccine stores, strengthening the capacity of 36 sub-county stores, and equipping 1,177 health facilities with vaccine storage equipment.
