“We are declaring December as a month of vaccination and it will be launched by the Minister on Tuesday. This mandate will be applicable in January and this mandate will become effective”, the GHS Director stated.

At a ministers’ press briefing today, Dr Kuma Aboagye indicated that the vaccines are going to be mandatory for specific groups of people thus, all the three arms of government, health workers, security personnel, staff and students in secondary and tertiary institutions, workers in government institutions, commercial drivers and mates are expected to be vaccinated.

He also stated emphatically that people who have not been vaccinated would be denied access to places like beaches, sports stadiums and restaurants.
