Covid Vaccines

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has encouraged residents of Mamprugu-Moagduri District of the North East Region to take the covid-19 vaccines.

It said the vaccines would protect the people from the virus and it was important for the residents to receive the shots.

During public education in major communities such as Yizesi, Yizebisi, Tantala, Tuvuu, Wuntubri, Kubori, Kubugu, Kikayiri and Yagaba, among others, Mr Thomas Issahaku Imoro, the District Director of the Commission, urged the residents to disregard the misconceptions that the COVID-19 vaccine was unsafe.

He said the vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the government was safe and urged them to get vaccinated when the team visited their respective communities.

The District Director said while they wait for their turn, it was important to observe the recommended safety protocols such as social distancing, washing and sanitizing of hands as well as wearing of nose masks.

This, he said, would complement the government efforts to effectively fight the spread of the virus and put life back to normal.

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.
