The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has confirmed taking delivery of a consignment of childhood vaccines.

The service entreated caregivers to desist from the practice of rushing to the hospitals for the vaccines.

A statement issued and signed by the GHS Director-General, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye said the Ministry of Health has made adequate provisions for the supply of vaccines that will last for the rest of the year and beyond.

The vaccines include, Measles vaccines, BCG vaccines and Oral Polio Vaccines, with accompanying devices such as needles, syringes and safety box.

“The vaccines are free and can be obtained at designated health facilities and all Child Welfare Clinics (weighing centers) across the country,” the statement said.

Deliveries to the regional and district facilities will start from Monday, March 13.

Also, children who missed their scheduled vaccines are still eligible for vaccination.

It will be recalled that the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service (GHS) on Saturday, March 11, 2023, took delivery of the first consignment of vaccines.

The Ministry of Information in a Facebook post assured that more vaccines are expected in the country in the coming weeks from multiple sources.
