Ghana is expecting its first batch of approved COVID-19 vaccines this week.
Speaking in an interview with Kojo Mensah on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Monday (22 February), Dr Asare assured all health workers will be educated on the vaccine this week.
“Only on Friday there was a big launch of the risk communication, and as I speak now people are all over the place communicating and telling people what we are supposed to do,” Dr Asare stated.
“There are all sorts of materials that are out there, we have started the education, if you are in a pandemic there are a lot of things that go on.
