The CEO of Garrison Pharmacy, Richmond Adusa-Poku has disclosed that frontline workers should first be jab with the COVAX vaccine rather than the President.
He added should frontline health workers be the first to receive the vaccine, it would go a long way to boost trust and faith in the vaccine.
“I think you clearly see this across the globe and when doctors at Korle-Bu, 37, Komfo Anokye, University of Ghana Medical Centre are seen taking these jabs – these are the people who are looking after the Covid patients – it inures to the benefit of the citizenry, politicians later can follow, that’s my personal view,”
According to him, the distrust most Ghanaians have for politicians may prove detrimental to inuring Ghanaians to accept the vaccine.
I earlier reports, it is indicated that the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will receive the first dose of the initial consignment of COVID-19 vaccines which arrived in the country on Wednesday.
In a statement disclosed by Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare, Presidential advisor on health stated that the move “is to assure Ghanaians that the vaccines are safe and any other reactions like headache, dizziness, or pains are all usual with every vaccination,”
