The number of people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in Kenya has surpassed the 850,000 mark as the country continues its nationwide immunization efforts.

According to the Ministry of Health on Friday, 850.92 people out of a total of 2,439,528 people who have already received at least one vaccination have already received both vaccinations.

The East African country has stepped up vaccinations to seek a full reopening of its economy.

This exercise has been aided by the recent surge in vaccines and an increase in vaccination centers.

The Ministry of Health announced earlier this month that it would fully vaccinate 30 million people against COVID-19 by the end of 2022.

Kenya has already received 5,146,780 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines, with more expected in the coming days.

AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines are currently available in Kenya. Sinopharm and Pfizer vaccine doses are expected in the country before the end of September.

Kenya has so far recorded 245,781 COVID-19 infections with 4,965 deaths.
