His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo will receive the first dose of the initial consignment of COVID-19 vaccines which arrived in the country on Wednesday.

The presidential advisor on health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare disclosed that the president will be the first person to be vacinated.

assure Ghanaians that the vaccines are safe and any other reactions such as headache, pains or dizziness are usual with vaccination.

Currently Ghana has recorded more than 80,000 cases with over 580 deaths on account of the virus. 

Dr. Nsiah-Asare said it would be in the interest of the country, for Ghanaians to avail themselves to be vaccinated when that opportunity comes. He edged other Ghanaians abroad to also publish videos to encourage others in Ghana to accept the vaccine.
