Nairobi, Kenya: The Catholic church in Kenya has raised questions over the ongoing national tetanus vaccination campaign targeting women aged between 14-49 years.
The questions the church has put across are;
1- Is there a tetanus crisis on women of child bearing age in Kenya? If this is so, why has it not been declared?
2- Why does the campaign target women of 14 – 49years?
3- Why has the campaign left out young girls, boys and men even if they are all prone to tetanus?
4- In the midst of so many life threatening diseases in Kenya, why has tetanus been prioritized?
