COVID-19 vaccines to arrive in Ghana by close of week


Summary short_text

Ghana will be taking stock of the COVID-19 vaccines by the close of this week.
On whether Ghana was paying for the vaccines, Dr. Amponsa-Achiano said, COVAX "Is supplying us vaccines for 20% of our population free of charge."
"COVAX is giving us about 12.4 million, African Union is giving us almost 8 million, we have the Tony Blair Foundation and other bilateral agencies giving us some vaccines. So we have a deficit of about 12 to 13 million. And so I know the Minister of Health is working with partners on this. And the vaccines are not going to be supplied within a week or two. I'm sure that come close to the year, we should have made some inroads," he added.
