Ghana Receives Strazeneca Vaccine From Covax

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –  Ghana is the first West African Country to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine from COVAX.

This was disclosed by the World Health Organisation (WHO)

According to WHO, Ghana received 600,000 doses of the vaccine from COVAX.

It said: “Ghana becomes the first African country to receive #COVID19 vaccines from the COVAX facility. 600,000 Oxford-AstraZeneca doses arrived in Accra this morning. The delivery is the first wave of arrivals to continue in coming days.

“Ghana is among the first countries to receive #COVAX vaccines based on various factors, including a strong rollout plan & all regulatory steps in place. The shipments represent the beginning of the largest vaccine procurement & supply operation in history.”

 COVAX, which is co-led by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and GAVI Alliance, was established in 2020 to mobilise resources for innovative and equitable access to COVID-19 diagnostics, treatments and vaccines.

Reacting,  Tedros Ghebreyesus, the director-general of WHO, stated that the development calls for celebration.

“At  last! This morning the first doses of #COVID19 vaccines shipped by the COVAX facility arrived in #Ghana. Congratulations to all partners including @gavi, @CEPLvaccines & @UNICEF,” he tweeted

“A day to celebrate, but it’s just the first step. 45 days left for #Vaccine Equity.

“Today is the culmination of many months of planning, research, negotiation & coordination. But it’s just the beginning. We still have a lot of work to do to realize our shared vision for #Vaccine Equity by starting vaccination in all countries within the first 100 days of the year.”
