The Kenyatta International Conference Centre resembled one big nursery with parents and their crying babies.
Hundreds of parents with their infants thronged the centre where they received their first shot against pneumonia.
Not even the children’s tears as the shot broke through their skin could dampen the smiling faces of their mothers.
The mothers waited patiently for their infants’ turn to be vaccinated as the painful shot represents a chance to survive a disease that many children have not been lucky to withstand.
