Ghana is to begin the Covid-19 vaccination on March 2 as government takes delivery of 600,000 AstraZeneca doses today.

The Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine was made by the Serum Institute of India. The vaccines which arrived at the Kotoka International Airport on an Emirates Airlines cargo was received by a delegation led by the Minister of Health designate, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu.

The first segment of the population that will receive the doses include health workers, adults 60 years and above, people with underlying health conditions and frontline executives. The others are the legislature, judiciary and their related staff, frontline security personnel, some religious leaders, essential workers, teachers, and other personalities in Greater Accra Metro including Awutu Senya and Awutu Senya East in the Central Region.

A similar segmented population in the Greater Kumasi Metro and Obuasi Municipality will also be covered.

A statement from the Ministry of Information said government remains resolute at ensuring the welfare of all Ghanaians and is making frantic efforts to acquire adequate vaccines to cover the entire population through bilateral and multilateral agencies. The statement urged the public to do their part by ensuring that they get vaccinated.
