Ghana last week received 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
As Ghana prepares to start its Covid vaccine rollout this week, the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo has urged his people not to heed conspiracy theories casting doubt on the programme.
Mr Akuffo-Addo said some doubted the efficacy of jabs, and others believed that vaccines were created to wipe out the African race, but this was untrue.
The President said from Tuesday, March 2, to Monday,March 15, the Ghana Health Service will begin the deployment of the 600,000 AstraZeneca vaccines with persons in Groups 1 and 2 being the target of the first vaccination campaign. He said it will be conducted in 43 districts in the country. They are 25 in Greater Accra, 16 in Ashanti, and 2 in the Central Region.
The President assured Ghanaians that taking the vaccines will not alter their DNA, it will not embed a tracking device in their bodies, neither will it cause infertility in women and men as fabricated around.
Mr Akufo, Vice and their wives are due to get their jabs on Monday, before Ghana’s mass rollout begins on Tuesday to reaffirms his stand on the positivity of the vaccine.
