Reasons why Ghanaians should take the covid-19 vaccine

WHO believes that everyone, everywhere who could benefit from safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines should have access as quickly as possible, starting with those at highest risk of serious disease or death.

We are pleased that Ghana has become the first country to receive the COVID-19 vaccines from the COVAX Facility. We congratulate the Government of Ghana – especially the Ministry of Health, Ghana Health Service, and Ministry of Information - for its relentless efforts to protect the population. As part of the UN Country Team in Ghana, UNICEF and WHO reiterate our commitment to support the vaccination campaign and contain the spread of the virus, in close cooperation with all partners, including Gavi and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).

Many Ghanaians have had doubts about the covid-19 vaccines before it arrived at the shores of the country.

A statement release from the Ministry of Information last week stated that the vaccination exercise is going to begin with front line workers the parliamentarians and people with underlying conditions who are much more exposed to getting the covid-19 disease. The government therefore entraets each and everyone to take part in the vaccination exercise if it was something going to harm the general public it wouldn't have started with the most important people helping fight the deadly covid-19
