Covid-19 task force chairman Dr Alfred Akwala, has said that Sputnik vaccine has not received market authorisation.
“You cannot market a product that is not yet approved for commercial use. This morning, the task force met and the Pharmacy and Poisons Board informed us that they have summoned the distributors of this particular vaccine and they have actually given them a warning in writing and if that kind of marketing continues, they will be in contravention of PPB rules and its emergency use can be withdrawn,” Akwala said.
Akwala said that as a taskforce, they have set recommendations that must be met by any vaccine that will arrive in the country.
Among the recommendation is that it must be approved by the World Health Organisation, and must have local registration by PPB.
HEALTH Ministry warned distributors of Sputnik V vaccine against marketing it saying that it risks losing emergency use authorization. But interestingly the deputy PRESIDENT who serves in the same govt has already led his followers in taking the UNAUTHORIZED COVID JAB.
Now this country is being divided into two teams, Astrazaneca(Dynasty) and Team SputNik(Hustler’s):
The only legacy that Uhuru might leave for KENYANS is that he was the weakest President who could be bullied by his Deputy. The deputy PRESIDENT does everything opposed to his boss, and the boss can do nothing about it.
The 20 billion Shilling Deal!!!!!!!!
As usual, I like thinking out of the box… Especially after more than two decades of actively observing the Kenyan Billionaire Class……
99% of our Billionaires got rich by using Government Policy and systems.
This Current situation is no exception….
Look at the facts…. Sunday Nation reported that a well connected company had been given the go ahead to ship in the Sputnik V vaccine…..
Your guess as who owns the company is correct if you look at a certain direction that has monopolized the health sector deals……
Look at the article about Sputnik V……. The vaccine is retailing at 1,000 shillings but on minimum orders of 1 million doses… Meaning you need minimum 1 billion to make a shipment……
Even if you charter a Boeing 777, your costs will not be more than 20 million to reach Kenya from Moscow….
You wait for the Government sponsored vaccine to arrive, and the public to get into the vaccine mood…. Then quietly ship in your 1 million doses….
Now, after spending 1 billion…. You create panic in Kenya….. And lock down 5 of the richest Counties…… With fear, panic and despondency… Everyone rushes to be vaccinated…….. And as usual, the Government vaccination rollout is inefficient and full of incompetence….
So, everyone rushes to your 11,000 per dose vaccine…..
And after weeks of suffering, you give a condition to Buses, Airlines, Hotels, Restaurants, Supermarkets, and other mass employers to ensure that staff get vaccinated before lockdown is lifted……
There is a major rush, and all the 1 million doses are snapped up………
Do the maths…. You spend 1 billion and sell at 11 billion – make unclean profits of 10 billion in one month….. And since one needs 2 doses, you will make another 10 billion after two months….
In just 4 months, you make unclean 20 billion…….
Yes 20 billion…..
Think about it…….
By the time the Lockdown is lifted, someone will be 20 billion shillings richer
