The Ghana Health Service (GHS), will begin giving out AstraZeneca vaccines to persons due for their second jabs from Tuesday 31st August to Saturday 4th September, 2021 across all 29 Districts in the Greater Accra Region.
In a statement, GHS said persons eligible to take part in the exercise should be people above 18 years who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine from 10th March to 29th March this year.
The statement also admonished the public to bring along a valid national ID card and their COVID-19 Vaccination Card for the exercise.
The government took delivery of 249,600 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines from the UK government this weekend.
Out of the about 800,000 people to have been vaccinated with AstraZeneca, nearly half of the number is yet to receive the second jab.
Ghana has vaccinated a section of the population with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which arrived in the country in July through the African Union’s African Vaccine Acquisition Trust initiative.
