A team of laboratory experts has been constituted by the Ministry of Health to jointly with other interested parties run tests on the controversial Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine.
The Director of Medical Services Dr Nicholas Muraguri told KBC Wednesday afternoon that the decision to authenticate the test results obtained by the ministry and the Catholic Church is aimed at clearing doubts about the vaccine.
He clarified that the tetanus campaign targets women of child bearing age because it is aimed at eliminating maternal neonatal tetanus which is synonymous with this bracket.
1) What is the cost of this Tetanus program? Who funds it?
2) What companies/corporations supplied the b-HCG laced vaccines?
3) Is it official policy of the Kenya government to support sterilization programs?
4) Are the vaccines a requirement or condition for any foreign capital or funds?
