Tourism vaccinations in Kilifi County from today

Hotels and restaurants staff will have access

13-05-2021 by redazione

The outcry from the Kilifi County hospitality industry seems to have paid off.
Even on the coast, after Nairobi and its environs, vaccines for 'frontline' tour operators are arriving.
This was confirmed by the head of the Coastal Hotel and Restaurant Association (KAHC), Sam Ikwaye, after receiving assurances from the Ministry of Health.
Speaking to members of the association (all hoteliers and restaurateurs should be) Ikwaye said "We have been assured that some vaccines will be made available for tourism and hospitality staff in Kilifi County. We will prioritise frontline and core staff.  Staff are required to register online at the https://portal.health.go.ke/ portal."
Ikwaye also specified a date, while sources close to the County Ministry of Tourism, which has interceded for the availability, speak of a supply of 1500 doses.
"We expect to launch the operation from today, Thursday 13 May 2021," the KAHC coastal manager clarified, "Initially the programme will only be available at Kilifi Hospital. However, we are working on the logistics to have the vaccines in Malindi as well."
In recent days, as reported by malindikenya.net, KAHC's manager for Kilifi County, Maureen Awuor, had raised the alarm so as not to be left behind as a sector compared to other national destinations such as the Maasai Mara and Samburu reserves and also internationally.
She appealed to the county's Minister of Tourism, Nahida Athman, who finally responded.
