Community Conversations on Vaccines Episode 4: Kenya
Kenyan health workers Dorothy Logedi and Margaret Odera discuss the unique challenges COVID-19 has posed to themselves and their community.
Presented by Immunization Advocates, Community Conversations on Vaccines explores issues related to vaccines and immunization in low- and middle-income countries through interviews with on-the-ground professionals in those communities, including health workers and journalists.
In this episode, we are joined by Dorothy Logedi, a nurse and coordinator of a vaccine program in Migori County, and Margaret Odera, a community health worker and mentor mother to women living with HIV in the capital Nairobi’s Mathare slum. Vince Blaser and Francesca Montalto talk to Dorothy and Margaret about the unique challenges the pandemic has posed to themselves, their community and their country, and how they are helping to increase COVID-19 and routine vaccine uptake in their communities.
