As part of plans to fight and curb the spread and dominance of COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana, the Akufo-Addo led administration is on route to acquiring about 17.6 million COVID-19 vaccines by the end of June 2021 worth $200 million.
Speaking about the vaccine, the Director of Public Health at the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe revealed that the price of the vaccine currently ranges from $4 to $20 and that will be cost at which every Ghanaian would be vaccinated.
“The goal is to vaccinate every Ghanaian and presently we are in excess of USD 200 million,” he said.
Dr Asiedu-Bekoe said the GHS was opting for readily available vaccines to ensure that the vaccination process was not prolonged.
COVID-19 vaccine helps our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19 without us having to get the illness.
