President Akufo-Addo Monday morning took the COVID-19 shot at the 37 Military Hospital. He is the first public officer to take the vaccine publicly in Ghana.

The move is part of efforts by government to demystify the conspiracy theories surrounding the vaccines.

The President was accompanied by the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo who also took the shot.

President Akufo-Addo thus becomes the world’s first recipient of the coronavirus vaccine from Covax, an initiative that aims to ensure that vaccines are shared fairly among all nations.

Ghana on Wednesday (February 24,2021) took delivery of 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine made by the Serum Institute of India (Covishield).

The 600,000 doses is the first consignment of vaccines acquired through the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility (COVAX) which Ghana, among 92 countries, has signed unto.
