As an auxiliary to the Government agencies, the Kenya Red Cross Society in 2020 and 2021 continued to implement interventions to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country and minimize the impact of the pandemic on communities. These interventions coordinated closely with both The National and County Governments included; the creation of awareness among the general public and communities in prison and refugee camps; installation and distribution of handwashing facilities; provision of free psychosocial counselling on 1199; livelihood support to vulnerable households and distribution of PPEs. 

Since the introduction of vaccines in the Country, Kenya Red Cross has been supporting the Ministry of Health, Government- County and National by working with partners to roll out the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in Kenya, to reduce the loss of lives and the negative impact on the economy that the pandemic has had. The interventions have been geared towards eliminating the barriers in access to safe COVID-19 vaccination as well as addressing misinformation and reducing vaccine hesitancy through coordinated advocacy campaigns.
