Committee Recommends Joint Testing Of Tetanus Jab
The recommendations have been passed following a seating between the health committee which is led by Robert Pokose and the Catholic Church representatives who have stood by their ground that the tetanus jab is laced with a hormone that causes infertility in women.
This comes barely a week after the Catholic Church wanted the ongoing countrywide Tetanus Vaccine Campaign shelved until concerns it has raised over its safety and objectives are addressed.
The church claims that the vaccine is a disguised birth control strategy that targets sexually active women.
The Head of the Catholic Church in Kenya John Cardinal Njue also advised against the campaign claiming that the fact it is targeting expectant mothers raises suspicions.
It is reported that the allegations could adversely affect the success of the vaccination campaign.
