Akufo-Addo addresses Ghanaians on COVID-19 measures tonight


Summary short_text

Scheduled for 8 pm, the address will be broadcast live on all major television networks including 97.3 Citi FM and Citi TV. Top of tonight's update is expected to be Ghana's COVID-19 vaccination programme following the arrival of 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine made by the Serum Institute of India and distributed by COVAX, a global vaccine sharing initiative.
The vaccines which came in last week will be deployed to designated health facilities and are expected to be administered first to frontline health workers, and high-risk persons and people over 60 years, to slow the progression of the disease.
Aside from the planned sensitization campaign in markets, lorry parks, churches, mosques and other public places to provide further clarity on the vaccination exercise, some government officials will also be taking the vaccine jab publicly to boost confidence in vaccine rollout.
