Covid-19: We’re not administering expired vaccines – GHS

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has refuted allegations that it is administering expired Covid-19 vaccines. 

The Service says such claims are completely unfounded and the citizenry should ignore same. 

Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kumah Aboagye made the denial at a press conference and explained that the Pfizer vaccine currently being administered has not expired. 

The GHS boss stated the vaccine has a span of 15 months and not 12 as is being speculated.

“The current expiry for Pfizer is 15 months and not the12 months. This issue that we are administering the expired vaccine is not true,” he said. 

Meanwhile, he also disclosed that his outfit will from Wednesday, December 14, re-embark on a massive vaccination ahead of the Yuletide. 

According to him, this is aimed preventing outbreak of the virus after the season. 

The exercise will last for five days, he added.
