The Director of Public Health at the GHS, Dr. Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe, said the vaccines should arrive soon.

This comes after a presidential advisor on health, Dr Anthony Nsiah Asare, said the government was eyeing the production of vaccines here in Ghana.

Speaking to Accra-based Asaase Radio in February, he said the government wants to turn the crisis created by the pandemic into an opportunity.

“In fact, the president has formed a committee, which I happen to be a member, chaired by Prof Frimpong Boateng, that we have been charged to come out with the production of vaccines in this country for the sub-region,” Dr. Nsiah Asare stated.

“What we want to do is to position Ghana in such a way that we can be a manufacturer of vaccines not only COVID-19 but all other vaccines for the Africa region. This is what we are doing, we have started work and we believe that we will get there.”
