Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and his wife Samira has received their jabs of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at the Police Hospital in Accra.

In a short address, Dr Bawumia urged Ghanaians to discard the conspiracy theories.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo and his wife, Rebecca had also taken their vaccination jabs at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

Background

Ghana recieved its first batch of COVID-19 vaccines through a UN-backed global vaccine-sharing scheme as part of efforts to enable equitable access to the jabs by low and middle income countries.

The consignment, which arrived at the Kotoka International Airport, consisted of 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines, which are expected to be administered first to frontline health workers, and high-risk persons and people over 60 years, to slow the progression of the disease.

The vaccines were produced by the Serum Institute of India. Credit: Peacefmonline
