The presidential advisor on health, Dr. Nsiah-Asare, has disclosed that, President Akufo -Addo will be the first to be vaccinated. According to Dr Nsiah-Asare, the move to have the President take the first jab of the vaccines “is to assure Ghanaians that the vaccines are safe and any other reactions like headache, dizziness, or pains are all usual with every vaccination,” he said.
“We encourage everyone to avail him or herself of the opportunity to be vaccinated. It is safe and we want other Ghanaians abroad to also put out their videos to encourage others in Ghana”.
The presidential advisors then explain that, with Ghana recording more than 80,000 cases and over 580 deaths on account of the virus, the Presidential Advisor on health noted that it would be in the interest of the country, for Ghanaians to avail themselves to be vaccinated when that opportunity came.
