Vaccine Card Now Contains Enhanced Features As Ghana Begins 2nd Dose of COVID19 Vaccination Today.

Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Health Service Dr Patrick Kuma Aboagye addressed a press conference to touch on a number of issues yesterday ahead of Ghana's second dose of vaccination today Wednesday May 19.

Ghana on Friday, May 7, 2021 received 350,000 doses of AstraZeneca through the COVAX facility. This batch forms part of the 1.3 million doses from this facility which was allotted earlier to the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is because Ghana has a robust vaccination infrastructure. The AstraZeneca vaccine which is produced by the Serum Institute Of India has suffered some challenges with distribution to other countries due to the sudden rise of Covid Cases and death in India.

He also said the new card contains enhanced features to avoid fake ones and can be used everywhere and for travel purposes across the world.

Those who are eligible to take the second dose of vaccines are those who took the vaccines between 1st to 9th March 2021.

Dr Aboagye said it would be ideal for one to visit the same centre where they took the first vaccines and that they hope to be done with the exercise by the 26th of May 2021.
