Minister of Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, has disclosed that the government is committed to procuring vaccines to protect Ghanaians.
To that end, he said the country has made some bilateral engagements with the African Union Medicines Platform to deliver the first batch of vaccines in August.
He pointed out that even though he is sure to receive vaccines from the African Union supported procurement in August he cannot tell the exact date that the country will receive the vaccines from the facility.
The African Union supported facility has three vaccines placed on its scheme such as AstraZeneca, Sputnik V, Johnson & Johnson to procure for the country.
Mr Agyemang-Manu therefore implored Ghanaians to behave themselves well by wearing the masks and keeping with the safety protocols to wait till August to receive the consignment.
He said this in a press briefing by the Ministry of Information on Wednesday, June 16.
