Close To 9m People Vaccinated, About 12m Doses Still Left – Health Minister

The Minister of Health, Hon. Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has said that the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has so far vaccinated close to about 9 million people.

He told state broadcaster, the Ghana Television on Wednesday January 12, that Ghana has close to over 12 million vaccines, adding, “that we are grappling with to see how we can get our people vaccinated”

The government aimed to vaccinate 20million by the end of 2021 but that target wasn’t achieved.

According to the Heath Minister, their goal was not achieved due to the unavailability of the vaccines at the time.

“We couldn’t get to our 20 million vaccination target because for nearly 5 or 6 months we didn’t have vaccines in our stocks,” he said.

“We got a large number of people vaccinated in the month of December as compared to the previous month,” he added.
