The Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and the Second Lady, Samira, were also expected to get vaccinated.

 

Addo on Sunday said the move was to assure Ghanaians that the vaccines were safe and encourage the population to avail themselves for vaccination.

 

Other leading public officials including the Speaker and Members of Parliament and the Chief Justice are due to publicly take the vaccine on Tuesday, he added.

 

Last Wednesday, Ghana received 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines made by the Serum Institute of India, the first such consignment acquired through the COVAX Facility.

 

The delivery saw Ghana become the first country to receive the vaccine doses from the scheme, which is a global pooled procurement mechanism for COVID-19 vaccines and is co-led by the World Health Organization.
