AstraZeneca was the first vaccine to arrive in Ghana earlier this year when the country heightened its efforts to beat COVID-19.
Out of the about 800,000 people to have been vaccinated with AstraZeneca, nearly half of the number is yet to get 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.
A total of 177,600 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were administered to unvaccinated persons in COVID-19 hotspots in the Greater Accra region and the Ashanti Region.
