The Upper East Regional Manager of the Expanded Program on Immunization of the Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Dominic Yeboah has said a research conducted by the Ghana Health Service shows more female turned up for the Covid-19 vaccination than their male counterparts.

According to him 54 percent of female received the vaccine while the male percentage was 48.

Addressing disease control officers of the Ghana Health Services at a training workshop organized by the CRS on Covid-19 vaccine promotion initiative inception Mr Yeboah said the research identified that myths that men become sexually weak when they take the Covid-19 accounted for the low patronage by men.
