The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye has said the GHS will make the Covid-19 vaccine compulsory if need be.
“I am sure that with time we will get there and it is something that we have to do to bring this pandemic under control and we need to ensure that almost everybody is protected. If it comes to that I think we will not hesitate to recommend that.
“We have companies in this country that have mandated that if you have not vaccinated, you can’t come to work… we have to bring the virus under control, we need to ensure that everybody is protected,” Dr. Kuma-Aboagye said on Accra-based Asaase Radio on Monday.
The government aims to vaccinate 20 million Ghanaians by the end of the year, however, as of November 18, 2021, only 3,493,688 Ghanaians had been vaccinated.
