The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, GHS, Dr. Patrick Kumah Aboagye says the first batch of Ghanaians who have been vaccinated will receive the second jab of the AstraZeneca vaccines from the end of April to May.

Speaking at a media briefing in Accra, Dr. Aboagye said persons who participated in the first exercise would be given the second jab as government seeks alternatives to procure more vaccines. According to him, the longer one’s vaccination status, the better.

Dr. Aboagye revealed that seven regions in the country would begin the vaccination exercise as soon as possible. Reacting to comments on the use of different vaccines for immunization, Dr Aboagye said there is no research or evidence that promotes the use of different vaccines though they may possess similar antigens.

In addition, although government is facing some challenges in procuring more vaccines from the COVAX facility, other alternatives are being discussed.

The Director-General disclosed that the country has procured some vaccines from South Africa and the private sector is also working to procure more vaccines.

Dr. Aboagye said that government is committed to ensuring every Ghanaian is vaccinated because the country would only recuperate once every citizen is vaccinated.
