Deputy President William Samoei Ruto has opened up about the reason why he’s never taken the Covid-19 vaccine.
Speaking on a sit-down interview with Vincent Ateya on Thursday said that they had agreed as Cabinet that the frontline workers would be the first people to get the Vaccine and sadly he isn’t among them and when his time comes for him to take the vaccine jab, he will openly oblige.
“We decided as Cabinet to prioritize frontline workers and those who have a higher exposure to Covid-19 and that’s why we started with doctors, nurses, police and the army and then students, and that is the procedure we are following.
It wouldn’t be good for me to get the vaccine and I’m not a frontline worker.
I can protect myself. A doctor cannot stay at home, a nurse cannot stay at home,” said William Ruto.
Deputy President who was trending for the most part of yesterday on social media urged Kenyans to take the vaccine adding that it protects them from contracting the novel coronavirus disease.
At the moment over 64,000 people in the country have already taken the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine and counting.
