Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Kenya received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Sisters Philomina Hembrom and Vinaya Chalil were eager to receive their first dose this morning. The country is currently rolling out the AstraZeneca vaccine. With the rising Delta variant, COVID-19 cases are rising in the country. The vaccine is currently available to all civil servants, front-line workers, clergy, and all those who are above the age of 58. However, the vaccine has covered less than two percent of the population. “Surprisingly people, in general, are very hesitant to get the vaccine,” says SIster Vinaya.
Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Associates and friends headed to Belize this week to build a home in honor of Elaine McCarron, SCN.
