Ghana will roll out its second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise starting Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

This was announced by President Akufo-Addo, while providing updates on the country’s COVID-19 situation Sunday night.

The Ghana Health Service is expected to provide more details on the exercise in the coming week, the President said.

“I am happy to announce that beginning Wednesday, May 19 to Wednesday 26 May, the deployment of the second dose of vaccines will take place across the designated vaccination centers in 43 districts approximately 12 weeks after the first jab as the science prescribes. More details of the deployment will be communicated by the Ghana Health Service in the coming week”

Ghana roll out a mass vaccination programme against COVID-19 after receiving some 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine from India.

The Indian government has also donated some 50,000 AstraZeneca vaccines and 165,000 from telecom giant MTN.

As the country hopes to inoculate 20 million people by end of the year, some one million persons have so far been vaccinated.
