Covid-19 Vaccination: Akufo Addo, Bawumia Take First Dose

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia have lived by example in the yet-to-be-rolled-out vaccination exercise in the fight against COVID-19.

Through the Health Ministry, the government of Ghana received 600,000 vaccines of AstraZeneca to be administered to Ghanaians to stop the spread of COVID-19.

However, Ghanaians are divided on whether to take the vaccines. While some believe the vaccine is intended to wipe out the African species, others hold that taking the virus will make one impotent and have, therefore, kicked against the planned exercise.

In an attempt to demystify the erroneous public perception about the vaccines, Nana Akufo Addo and the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo Addo, visited the 37 Military Hospital in Accra to take the first vaccine this morning.

He was followed by Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his wife, Samira Bawumia, ahead of the exercise on Tuesday, 2 March 2021, across some 43 selected districts tagged as epicenters of the virus.

It is also expected that Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II, Chief Imam Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, Ga Mantse, and other prominent dignitaries will take their vaccines publicly to assure the public that the vaccines are safe.

President Akufo Addo, in his last address, emphasized that taking the vaccines will not change one's DNA, nor will it make one impotent, and hence called on the general public to participate in the exercise since it is the surest way to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.
