Ghana targets June to vaccinate 17m against COVID-19

Ghana is making arrangements to administer COVID-19 vaccines on no fewer than 17.6 million people by the end of June, President Nana Akufo-Addo has said.

In a televised speech late Sunday, he said the government is working with bilateral and multilateral partners to achieve its aim to vaccinate the entire population.

“I indicated our intention to procure our first consignment of the COVID vaccines within the first half of this year,’’ Akufo-Addo said.

“Much work has been done toward the realisation of this.’’

The president said the Food and Drugs Authority would use its established processes for granting emergency-use-authorisation for each vaccine in Ghana.

“The earliest vaccine will be in the country by March,’’ he said.

“We aim to vaccinate the entire population, with an initial target of 20 million people,’’ Akufo-Addo said.
