The efficiency of vaccine campaigns to control coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) is not only reliant on vaccine efficacy and safety but rather the rate of vaccine acceptance among the general public. Globally, the success in controlling this pandemic depends mainly on how the target populations take heed and accept the various intervention measures: both non-pharmaceutical as well as pharmaceutical approaches. While the development and eventual approval of COVID-19 vaccines was hailed as a magic bullet in the fight against this pandemic, their global acceptability and eventual uptake has not been encouraging at all. This work sets out to provide an up-to-date assessment of the current COVID-19 vaccination situation in Kenya while pointing at the possible causes as well as suggesting potential ways through which the present situation can be made better.
