The Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has started mass vaccination for all frontline staff at Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, members of the GACL Board led by the Chairperson, Madam Oboshie Sai Cofie, received the first jab of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine at the Airport Clinic.

Other senior management and frontline staff of the company were also vaccinated. The exercise is expected to continue until all other staff are covered.

Vaccination underway

This comes a day after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and other senior government officials took turns to receive the vaccine.

It marked the beginning of the deployment of the 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines from Tuesday, March 2 to Monday, March 15, 2021 by the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

The vaccines made by the Serum Institute of India (Covishield), arrived in Ghana on February 24, 2021.

Key public officials such as the Speaker of Parliament and Members of Parliament, the Chief Justice and Justices of the Superior Court of Judicature, the Chairperson and members of the Council of State, the Chief of Staff and senior officials at the Office of the President and prominent personalities and some eminent clergy, the National Chief Imam, the Asantehene, the Ga Mantse and some media practitioners have so far taken the jab publicly.
