Yes, you can still get the vaccine, but it is advisable that If you’re scheduled for the COVID-19 vaccine, please make every effort to be on time for your appointment.
While we understand unforeseen circumstances or travel issues may arise, these vaccines must be used in a time-sensitive manner and our supplies are very limited. To ensure that every dose is utilized, vaccines that are unused at the end of the day will be given to other patients. If you arrive later than 30 minutes from your scheduled appointment, you may need to be rescheduled. If you miss your vaccine appointment, due to limited supplies, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to immediately reschedule you. If you cancel your appointment for a second dose, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to reschedule you within the recommended timeframe for the second dose. We will only be able to reschedule you if supplies are available.
The cost of the vaccine is USD 70 / KES 7700 for one dose, the administrative and vaccination cost will depend on the hospital selected. Two doses of vaccine are required to effictively cover the risk against COVID-19
It is important to note that this may change due to the limited supply of the vaccine as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have taken Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere we can provide the second dose depending on the availability, it is however advised to receive both doses of vaccine from the same provider.
This will make sure that you get a vaccine from the same manufacturer each time.
Ensuring the safety and quality of vaccines is one of WHO’s highest priorities. WHO works closely with national authorities to ensure that global norms and standards are developed and implemented to assess the quality, safety and efficacy of vaccines.
By and large, side effects from the Covid-19 vaccines have remained relatively stable: Some people have mild pain at the injection site, and may feel achey or feverish for a couple of days. Most people feel those side effects slightly more after the second dose. These side effects are merely an indicator that your immune system is gearing up a response—although you don’t have to feel them to enjoy the immunological benefits of a vaccine.
The Ministry of Health has issued guidance for those who are fully vaccinated from COVID-19.
You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving your second dose in a two-dose series (such as the Sputnik vaccines). If you’re fully vaccinated from COVID-19, you can have small, indoor visits with others who are fully vaccinated. You can also then have small gatherings with others from a single household who are not vaccinated and have a low-risk for developing severe COVID-19 disease.
The Ministry of Health adds that you should still continue to wear masks and physically distance in public spaces even if you’re fully vaccinated. You should also avoid being in direct contact with unvaccinated people from multiple households, unvaccinated people at high-risk for severe COVID-19 disease, and those living with an unvaccinated person at high-risk for severe COVID-19 disease.
After being fully vaccinated, you should still watch out for symptoms of COVID, especially if you’ve been around someone who is COVID-positive. If you develop symptoms, you should get tested and stay away from others.
We will continue to watch for updated guidance from the Ministry of Health as more data becomes available. It’s important to note that this guidance does not apply to healthcare settings, and the current masking policies remain in place. All patients, visitors and caregivers at Bliss Medical Centers will still be screened and required to wear a face mask in our facilities, even if they are fully vaccinated.
The COVID-19 vaccines produce protection against the disease, as a result of developing an immune response to the SARS-Cov-2 virus. Developing immunity through vaccination means there is a reduced risk of developing the illness and its consequences. This immunity helps you fight the virus if exposed. Getting vaccinated may also protect people around you, because if you are protected from getting infected and from disease, you are less likely to infect someone else. This is particularly important to protect people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, such as healthcare providers, older or elderly adults, and people with other medical conditions.
