The Ghana Medical Association has cautioned Ghanaians not to get excited about President Akufo-Addo’s promise of some 18 doses of Covid-19 vaccines in the country by October.
While addressing the nation days ago, the President said Ghana is expecting some over 18 million doses of the Coronavirus vaccines by October as it struggles to contain third wave of the infections.
However, the General Secretary of the GMA, Dr Titus Bayuo noted that previous promises by the government concerning Covid vaccines have not yet materialized and therefore Ghanaians cannot be excited about further promises.
“Frankly, with the 18 million doses of vaccines promised by the President, we will have to be cautious because we were told we were getting some one or two million doses in the past and as of now how many of them are in? maybe they are in and I don’t know or haven’t seen them.
“So until I see the 18 million doses we shouldn’t jump ahead of ourselves. Until I see the doses in Ghana I won’t jubilate. Until we get them in the arm of every Ghanaian I will hesitate in jubilating,” he told Francis Abban on Morning Starr Tuesday.
