This Documentary offers an indepth analysis of Covid 19 vacccine acess in Arid and Semi Arid areas in kenya with a case study in Turkana and Samburu. In the Documentary I get indepth statistics of Covid 19 vaccine availability and supply to this areas, the hinderances and structures put in place by the goverment and respective counties to help adress this issue.
The project highlighted the reasons why there was low uptake of the vaccines in this regions and challenged the goverment officials to do more in this areas. Radio programmes as well as social media reachout was intensified
I used Zoom in conducting the interviews, was ale to acess goverment records in regards to vaccination as well as interviewed doctors on ground to collaborate the information.
I used interview as a technique to get information and disserminate, also used our KBC’s archive in getting clips of vaccine arrivals etc
What was the hardest part of this project?
getting in person interviews during the hight of the pandemic, travelling to those areas for Brolls because of restrictions imposed by the government. Getting people to talk to the about the vaccine since it was at the height of the Pandemic
