GHS begins compulsory vaccination of passengers at KIA

    On Tuesday, December 14, 2021, over 100 unvaccinated persons who arrived at the Kotoka international Airport (KIA) were made to undergo a mandatory vaccination exercise.

    These persons were vaccinated with the single-shot Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccination exercise was per the directive of the Ghana Health Service (GHS)

    The directive is part of the revised protocol for persons arriving in the country through the KIA, following the detection of the Omicron variant of the Sars CoV-2.

    A report by the Daily Graphic said, Dr Lawrence Lartey who is the Head of Port Health at KIA, confirmed the jabbing exercise that took place on December 14.

    He further stated that, the Ghanaians who were vaccinated were returning from other West African countries and implied that, the vaccination exercise would continue for the next couple of weeks per the mandatory vaccine policy of the Ghana Health Service.

    According to him, the vaccination was done for unvaccinated Ghanaians who arrived in the country as part of the revised policy.
