You're health hazard if you don't take COVID vaccine
The Deputy Programme Manager of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation at the Ghana Health Service John Frederick Dadzie says Ghanaians who refuse to take the COVID vaccine will become a health hazard to themselves and their families. "If you don't take the vaccine you become a problem to yourself and your community, and you become a health hazard to yourself and to your family. Let's all go out and take it so we protect ourselves from this virus," he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Thursday. "These 600,000 Covax vaccines are part of an initial tranche of deliveries of the AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine licensed to the Serum Institute of India, which represent part of the first wave of Covid vaccines headed to several low and middle-income countries," said UNICEF, which organised the shipment from Mumbai, in a joint statement with the WHO. Health workers, people with underlying health conditions, frontline executive, legislature, judiciary, and some religious leaders are among the first category of people who will receive the newly arrived Covid-19 vaccine.
