Ghana has taken delivery of the second batch of COVID 19 vaccines after weeks of anxiety over the fate of Ghana's  vaccination programme. The second vaccine dose exercise looks set to resume soon after 350,000 doses of the AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine licensed to the Serum Institute of India.

The second batch of the doses from the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility (COVAX) facility, landed in Accra on Friday morning. 

It arrived around 5am, May 7, aboard a Turkish Airline fight to kick-start the second phase of the nationwide vaccination.

The second batch of doses expected from India were not forthcoming and a sector of the public attributed it to rising cases of the COVID 19 in the South Asian country. Fears that the programme could be held back heightened.  

This sent tongues wagging and kept citizens who received the first jab more than two months ago in a quandary.

The 350,000 doses of vaccines are an addition to the 600,000 doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine received on February 24, this year.

Already, Ghana has inoculated about 850,000

Presidential Advisor on Health, Dr Anthony Nsiah-Asare who spoke to SilverFM ahead of Friday's delivery indicated that;

''Ghana will take delivery of 350 000 doses of the vaccine Friday morning , the shipment of the vaccines has left the facility and it will land in Accra tomorrow morning''

''This second batch will be used to commence the second doses of vaccination programme which is the dose to be taken 8 to 12 weeks after first vaccination .... a time table of the second dose will be provided next week by the Ghana Health Service''

''The country is also expecting, in few weeks, batches of Russian vaccine Sputnik V, American Johnson and Johnson vaccines and more for the second phase of vaccination - those who were unable to take shots of the COVAX vaccine'' he told Nana Ampratwum on OmanbapaShow.
