The presidential advisor on health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare, speaking on Asaase Radio monitored by bawkuonline.com, says covid-19 vaccine is free of charge for all Ghanaians.
“What I will say first is that it’s free to the ordinary citizen. Any Ghanaian who is going for the vaccine will not pay anything for it. I’m sure somebody will ask; what about those who can pay? He said.
“All what we are saying is that if the private sector wants to be part of this, there should be private sector financing. The private sector should try and give the money and the government will bring the vaccines in.”
“We are also getting vaccines from bilateral organisations. We are also getting vaccines from the private sector which have agreed to give vaccines for the corporate organisations, but they will also give the government the same amount of vaccines,” he added.
Meanwhile, according to Reuters reports, Russia’s RDIF sovereign wealth fund stated on Saturday, 20 February that Ghana had allowed crisis authorization for the utilization of the Sputnik V immunization against COVID-19, turning into the 31st nation to do as such, and the fifth country in Africa.
