Ghana becomes recipient of historic first shipment of COVAX vaccines
Ghana has taken delivery of 600,000 COVID-19 vaccines, and syringes under the COVAX Facility, making Ghana the first recipient of this COVAX vaccine.
As part of the COVAX facility, GAVI, WHO and UNICEF worked closely with the Government of Ghana to facilitate the process for the vaccines to arrive in the country.
In a press release issued by the UN, "...the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccines into Ghana is critical in bringing the pandemic to an end." Both UNICEF and WHO thanked all partners that are supporting the COVAX Facility to deliver safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines to all countries quickly and fairly.
