The government has rolled out an ambitious health program aimed at enhancing the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive. The Chanjo system, developed by the Ministry of Health, is a self-service digital platform that allows members of the public to do self-registration through an established specially designed website –portal.health.go.ke, in order to receive the jab at their preferred health facilities across the country.
The Head of Health Sector Monitoring at the Ministry of Health Dr. Joseph Sitienei says self-registration will require all applicants to key in their personal details so as to minimize errors during the inoculation exercise process.
“Individuals going for vaccination will use the portal to register and update their own details the best way they understand them and pick a health facility in which they wish to receive the vaccine. This will allow health facilities to plan for the provision of vaccines and reduction of queues during the vaccination process.” Dr. Sitienei said.
Besides, the portal will provide the user with information such as when they are due for their second dose as well as the generation of the Covid-19 vaccination certificate containing unique safety configurations based on a person’s identification details.
“The Covid-19 certificate is authentic and has Security features embedded in a QR code which will lift the names of the individual. Therefore, it is impossible to change the name in the certificate and hope that the QR code will change to conform to the new name that you are trying to corrupt. Once you read the QR code using the scanners it will show the name of the original persona in the database.” Dr. Sitienei explained
