*MEDIA AND COVID-19*
The media and other communication channels play a critical role in ensuring that the public gets access to the right health information regarding COVID-19 vaccines.
This was remarked by Kericho Governor, H.E. Prof. Paul Kiprono Chepkwony while gracing a media training workshop conducted by the Kenya Red Cross Society here in Kericho.
The Governor who was accompanied by CECM in charge of Health Services, Hon.Dr.Shadrack Mutai, urged the media to work closely with the government and other stakeholders in sensitizing members of the public on the need of getting vaccinated and at the same time debunking the myths surrounding the vaccines.
Currently the County has registered a total of 48000 persons who have been vaccinated.
