Nairobi City Stars players and technical bench officials were among those who received Covid 19 vaccinations on Saturday 10 April 2021 at Kasarani Gymnasium.

The vaccinations, as organized by the Ministry of Sports in conjunction with the Football Kenya Federation (FKF), was an exercise in the right direction as stated by club CEO Patrick Korir who accompanied Simba wa Nairobi players.

“Above all, safety of our players is paramount and we therefore thank the Ministry (of Sports) and the Federation for organizing the same,”

“With the exercise now over and done with we hope it will lead to the possibility of reopening up the sport following its recent suspension.” said Korir

Team Coordinator Samson Otieno gave a status of the exercise;

“We had a number of players who had reservations over the jabs due to alarmists posts on social media. We are however glad 28 players and eight officials showed up and participated in the exercise,”

“We had only two players missing out – Nicholas Kipkirui and Rodgers Okumu – who were out of town and could not travel in time for the same,”

“We will arrange for them to take the jab with the nearest team where they are when the exercise is organized outside Nairobi County.” added Otieno

Sports, football included, was suspended indefinitely towards late March by the President of the republic of Kenya due to a sharp rise in the Covid 19 infection numbers and deaths.
