Akufo-Addo, Wife Take COVID-19 Vaccine Shots

Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo and his wife, Rebecca were the first Ghanaians to take the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday in a public programme.

Akufo-Addo received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine produced as a patent by the Serum Institute of India (SII) and said it is safe and will help protect against health COVID-19.

Ghana and Ivory Coast are two of some African countries who have received their first doses of the COVISHIELD vaccine from the Serum Institute of India.

The Nigerian government is also expected to receive four million doses of the COVISHIELD vaccines on Tuesday.

Akufo-Addo’s action is expected to fuel other African leaders’ resolve to lead the way in taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
