COVID-19 Vaccination – no more excuses
I am impressed with the new arrangements by the Ghana Health Service for vaccination against COVID-19. These days, I see health personnel at under canopies at various locations, including churches, market places, and communities where individuals can go for the jab.
The unwillingness by some members of the public to take the vaccine was partially as a result of the long queues they had to join at hospitals and health centres. But it is clear the situation has improved now and with the current arrangement, the vaccine is now at the doorsteps of the public.
This is the reason, I believe, there should not be any more excuse or delay in taking the vaccine. The community visibility of health workers and the sensitisation on the essence of the vaccination should be enough motivation for persons who are yet to get themselves vaccinated to do the needful.
I wish to encourage those yet to make their minds to take advantage of the presence of health workers in their communities to go for the vaccine to help attain the vaccination target set by the government and help eradicate COVID-19.
