Start educating the public on COVID-19 vaccine – GMA tells NCCE

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) wants the National Commission for Civic Education to begin educating the public on the COVID-19 vaccines before they arrive in Ghana.

It will be recalled that President Akufo-Addo in his address to the country indicated that Ghana will not be left out of taking delivery of the vaccines which were recently announced.

With this said, the GMA believes the public must be educated to so that they can accept the vaccines when they arrive in the country.

In a radio interview with Accra based Citi FM Tuesday, the President of the Ghana Medical Association, Dr Frank Ankobea charged the government to begin the education on the need for the vaccines now.

The positive cases of the disease in Ghana is gradually going up again after it went down in the latter part of 2020.

According to the GMA, the government should not wait till the vaccines arrive in Ghana before the public is educated on the need for it.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has already hinted that Ghana will procure the vaccines to help prevent the spread of the virus.
