The FDA (Food and Drugs Board) in a press release issued today  has issued a Public Health Alert warning the general public against the patronage and use of any COVID-19 vaccine. They also warned entities engaging in the said acts to desist saying it contravenes the Public Health Act.

According to the FDA, this is being done by “unscrupulous members of the business class who are peddling information on the sale of COVID-19 vaccines to hospitals and other health facilities”.

“The information is ostensibly to inform the general public of the availability of these vaccines from well known pharmaceutical brands indicating their price ranges.”

The release further stressed that when the COVID-19 vaccine is approved by the FDA for use in Ghana, the Ministry of Health will issue a national policy on the use of COVID-19 vaccines throughout the health sector.

Although President Akufo-Addo has promised that Ghana won’t be left out in accessing the approved vaccines, the government has not yet approved any vaccine.
