    Ms Kariuki announced that the government would gazette new guidelines that would help regulate the administration of the vaccination and centres where the services would be offered.

    "There are crooks issuing Yellow Fever cards from River Road which poses a serious exposure of health risks in our country," she noted.

    Defence Cabinet Secretary, Raychelle Omamo, who was also in attendance, stated that no country couldĀ reach a state of complete security without collaboration at regional and international level.

    "Due to weaponization of pathogens and bacteria either for research or evil deeds, we have to fundamentally re-order how we think about security," she added.
