Former President, John Dramani Mahama, has taken his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine today, Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
The 2020 flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) took part in the vaccination exercise with his wife, former First Lady, Lordina Mahama, at the Police Hospital.
After his vaccination, he urged Ghanaians to discard all the rumours regarding vaccines as they are helpful in protecting our health.
“I believe that all Ghanaians should avail themselves for the vaccines and indeed in Africa, we should be less hesitant about taking vaccines because all of us took vaccines when we were growing up, and it is due to these vaccines that today our children do not get all kinds of diseases like polio and smallpox among others.
“So vaccines are useful in preserving our health and so Ghanaians should disregard all these rumours,” he stated.
For that matter, he stated that he agreed to take his vaccine publicly as a way of debunking conspiracy theories and assure Ghanaians that the vaccines are safe.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo and his spouse took their vaccines yesterday at the 37 military hospitals together with Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who took his vaccine at the Police Hospital.
