When asked about the question of what his outfit is doing about the new development about the Covid-19 vaccines, Dr. Amponsa-Achiano answered: “I will tell you how efficient our system has been, you remember this thing nearly became a topical issue some couple of weeks back? When it was put out that thousands of doses in Ghana were expired and I got the opportunity on some sister stations to debunk those unfortunate assertions, we have an efficient system”. “I believe that Ghana probably was one of the countries that had one of the highest doses from those stocks, it’s the same stock that was given to us generously by MTN, very close to expiry, we received ours on the 30th of March, FDA had to do a couple of tests on them. So within 2 days, they had released so we started vaccinating on 1st April and within 7 days or so, and having at the back of our minds that we had nearly expired drugs on our hands and we efficiently delivered. And we had a few doses, a few vials that got expired and we took them out of our cold kit.
“We as a country took a decision not to go beyond that so some countries are reporting 16,000, others 56-57,000 and so on. We had just a few, I think 58 vials which translate into 580 and even for this the country was chastising us unfortunately.
