Oppong Nkrumah Says First Batch of COVID-19 Vaccines Will Arrive Today
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister-designate for Information has announced the first batch of Covid-19 vaccines for the country will arrive later today.
Speaking at the Conference and Donor Presentation for the Sustainable Development of Yendi Municipal Hospital, Oppong Nkrumah said that he attended the program despite having another task connected to the delivery of the first batch of vaccines on Monday.
He said he had another engagement on Ghana’s COVID-19 vaccines that will be arriving early Monday morning.
This indicates the vaccines will be delivered to Ghana today.
According to the state’s rollout plan, health professionals will be the first to get vaccinated against the virus.
Also, due to the prevalence of the virus in the Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions, they will receive priority in the rollout of the vaccine.
The government is targeting vaccinating 20 million people between March and October this year.
