Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said government may be compelled to impose sanctions on persons who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Ghana commenced a vaccination exercise last week with about 300,000 persons vaccinated so far.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday at the Peduase Lodge, Hon. Oppong Nkrumah stated that the government believes it will have to force those unwilling to take a jab to do so when the need arises.

We are pleased that we are observing that the initial vaccine hesitancy appears to be toning down a bit and a lot of people are volunteering or stepping up to it. So we have not had a need as of now to introduce sanctions. Should it become necessary at some point that we consider what has been done in places like I think Israel or other places where they will say if you haven’t taken the vaccine you can’t attend a public programme. Should it become necessary that we get there, we’ll advise accordingly. But for now, we are happy at the level of encouragement and volunteering with which people are stepping out and taking it.”

Over 200,000 people in Ghana have been vaccinated against the deadly Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the last six days.
