Manasseh Azure explains his reasons for declining invitation to take his COVID 19 jab
Investigative journalist and former Multimedia worker, Manasseh Azure Awuni has given his reasons for earlier declining an invitation from an executive of the Ghana journalists Association ( GJA) to come for his COVID 19 vaccination injection.
The Journalist was on last night invited by an executive of the GJA to come for his COVID 19 vaccination today at the Accra International Press Center.
Manasseh giving his reasons for declining the invitation in a social media post sighted by GhanaNewsPage.Com, stated emphatically and unequivocally that he has never believed conspiracy theories about COVID 19 vaccines.
According to him, he was excited about the opportunity as he has been looking forward to get himself vaccinated.
The investigative journalist giving his reasons stressed out that even though he was excited about the opportunity, he declined the invitation as he is relatively young and do not have any known underlying health condition.
He believes that journalists who are old, retired or better still young but have known underlying health conditions need to be vaccinated first as doses available in the country are limited.
Manasseh holds the view that it is not right to go for his jab while those who need it more than he does don’t get the opportunity.
” I’m eager to get this vaccine to protect myself, my family and those I come into contact with. But I know there are many people out there– in this case, many journalists– who need it more than I” Part of Manasseh Azure’s post read.
However, 800 out of the 600, 000 vaccine doses provided to Ghana through the COVAX initiative have been allocated to journalists in the country.
