On Wednesday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe set social media on fire when he expressed reservations concerning the Pfizer-developed Covid-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, has been found to be 90 per cent effective in preventing Covid-19.

When Kagwe appeared before the Senate Health Committee, he said there is no excitement about the vaccine.

"Yes we are hearing that there is a vaccine. I have got my many doubts..  we are talking about a vaccine that stops someone from getting the virus," The Star quotes him.

"I would like to know how they knew that I was going to get the virus so that they give me the vaccine. When you tell me that you stopped me from getting the virus how will you know that you stopped me?"

His sentiments sent shock waves with Kenyans believing that the health CS simply embarrassed himself.

He later on came out to claim that his reservations were taken out of context.

He says the correct position is that in the absence of certainty about the vaccine’s ability, Kenya won't commit taxpayers’ money to pre-order a vaccine that’s yet to undergo regulatory approvals.

However, while he was busy crying over spilt milk, Kenyans were not buying none of that and turned him into a laughing stock.

Below are some of the reactions from Kenyans on Twitter;  

Its Kiprotich: Health CS Mutahi Kagwe is now behaving like pastor Ng'ang'a . He should be fired.
