On March 3, 1.02 million doses of the AstraZeneca-Oxford Covid-19 vaccine arrived at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.

The vaccines were transported by Unicef as part of the Covax facility, which aims to provide equitable access to vaccines for all countries around the world.

AstraZeneca’s vaccine was touted as having several advantages, including it being easier to produce, store, and going for $3 (Sh329) per dose.

That reflects the prices paid by governments like the United States that have placed orders for tens or even hundreds of millions of doses of the vaccine.
