VACCINES IN SHORT SUPPLY TO ARRIVE IN GHANA IN THE NEXT 3 WEEKS, $6.4M PAID TO UNICEF – Health Minister

Speaking in Parliament on Friday, March 10, he announced that $ 6.4 million has been paid to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF),  to supply the vaccines.

He further appealed to the lawmakers to assist him in getting the right funding for vaccine procurement.

“Mr Speaker, it is a very serious public interest issue, the assurance I will give and I can give for the first time in the chamber here is that this will not happen again.

“I will advise that you will help me in my advocacy to get adequate funding for vaccines, even the health insurance budget. So when we meet with committees, they have always been talking about it, and even in the chamber, it has come up that if Parliament approves adequately for us and we always have our budget well we will be able to supply. I assure you that whatever challenges happened I don’t think we are going to face these challenges any longer.

“I can stand here and assure the House that within two weeks or three weeks we will get vaccines, even probably before that. I can’t get my hands on a specific date but probably even before that, we may get the vaccines that we are talking about. Throughout the period we have made 6.4million dollars equivalent to UNICEF who supplies us the vaccines,” the Dormaa Central lawmaker said.

Parts of the country have lately been experiencing a vaccine shortage of vaccines.

On Tuesday, March 7 some nursing mothers recounted how the vaccine shortage was affecting their babies.
