Covid 19- Children , Allergies and Pregnant women will not be vaccinated.

Dr. Alexander Dodoo, the Director-General of the Ghana Standards Authority, has disclosed that, children, pregnant women, people with allergies and underlying health conditions, and the aged will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus. “We need to get the public ready not just for the vaccine but to also expect that the protection offered by the vaccine goes with some amount of risk. There will be side effects. And it’s not going to be 100% safe. It never happens. So we need to communicate that there will be a lot of benefits, but there will be an accompanying measurable amount of tolerable risk which the population should be ready for,” he said.

He further explained that, Ghana is expected to receive 19.5 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines by the end of June and these vaccines will be given to people with strong immunity in order to reduce the spread of the virus in the country. He made this statement with an interview with joy News monitored by trust News.“ Normally for starters, children will not be included, they are more protected and they’re not passing on the virus. Those with allergies, those with underlying health conditions, those whose immune system appears compromised will not be vaccinated.”

“We need to get the public ready not just for the vaccine but to also expect that the protection offered by the vaccine goes with some amount of risk. There will be side effects. And it’s not going to be 100% safe. It never happens. So we need to communicate that there will be a lot of benefits, but there will be an accompanying measurable amount of tolerable risk which the population should be ready for,” he said. Dr. Dodoo further said that, pregnant women will not be vaccinated because the vaccine might not be safe for them and the unborn child, hence, they will be exempted.
