Former President, John Dramani Mahama together with his wife, Lordina Mahama have taken the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine jab.
The exercise took place at the Police Hospital in Accra on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
After taking the vaccine, the former president called on Ghanaians to disregard the conspiracy theories about the vaccine and get vaccinated.
“I believe that all Ghanaians should avail themselves for the vaccines and indeed in Africa, we should be less hesitant about taking vaccines because all of us took vaccines when we were growing up, and it is due to these vaccines that today our children do not get all kinds of diseases like polio and smallpox among others. So vaccines are useful in preserving our health and so Ghanaians should disregard all these rumours.” Mr. Mahama said.
He added that “I agreed to take the vaccine publicly, so everyone would be assured that the vaccines are safe”.
The President, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo and wife took theirs on Monday, March 1 2021 at the 37 Military Hospital.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his spouse also took theirs yesterday at the police Hospital.
However, Ghana received its first batch of 600,000 doses of Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines and will begin mass vaccination today.
The vaccination will take place in 43 districts with high infection rates which will include 25 in the Greater Accra Region, 16 in the Ashanti Region, and two in the Central Region.
