Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Sunday assured Ghanaians of the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine to be used for his country’s mass vaccination campaign.

In his televised speech on measures to protect people against the pandemic, Nana Akufo-Addo announced the vaccine will be administered in 43 epicenter districts across the country.

He said Ghanaian First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo and he himself as well as Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and Second Lady Samira Bawumia will be vaccinated on Monday ahead of the mass vaccination.

“This is being done because the vaccine will help protect us against the impact of COVID-19 on our health. It is also a major catalyst to restoring livelihoods and the national economy to the robust level it belongs,” he said.

Ghana took the delivery of 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine on Feb. 24 and the president said more were on their way to get the entire population vaccinated before the end of this year. Enditem
