dpa/GNA – German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Thursday that the military is ready to open its own coronavirus vaccination centres that will operate around the clock.

Speaking to weekly business newspaper Wirtschaftswoche, Kramp-Karrenbauer said the Bundeswehr centres could be operational within a very short time but the decision was in the hands of Health Minister Jens Spahn.

“We have been preparing for additional support by Bundeswehr forces for the vaccination of the population since November 2020,” she told the newspaper.

“The Bundeswehr can operate 28 vaccination centres (that will operate) seven days a week, day and night,” said Kramp-Karrenbauer, adding that this could result in the administration of an additional 20,000 vaccine doses daily.

The German government has come under fire for the slow pace of the vaccination effort, which was launched in late December.

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.
