Dr Kpodo in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Tema during the COVID-19 Vaccination exercise at GPHA Clinic explained that some people may experience some minor reactions which must not be generalized as with all medications individual reaction differ.

She stressed that “what will happen to A might not happen to B taking the same medication, but that is not enough reason for others to refuse the intake”.

Dr Kissi Domprah Ofori a Medical Officer at the GPHA Clinic who was the first to take the COVID-19 vaccination told GNA that, “I took the vaccine to protect myself from contracting and spreading the virus among themselves”.

He, therefore, advised people to prepare themselves psychologically and get ready to take the vaccination, saying there is no fear associated with the intake it is just like the normal vaccination process.

Dr Ofori also advised that those who have taken the vaccination and those yet to take it should continue to observe the COVID-19 preventive protocols, “we have to still observe the protocols until about 90 per cent have being vaccinated before we can do away with the protocols”.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
