By the way, I got my booster shot today and I feel great!🦁💪🏾🔥
According to the “Dzata” MP, he has received his Covid-19 vaccine booster shot. The Ghana Health Service (GHS) says Ghanaians can receive booster shots three to six months after being fully vaccinated.
The mandatory vaccination policy according to the Ministry of Health will enhance the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. For that reason, the Speaker’s directive.
Speaking on the floor of the House, Speaker Alban Bagbin said, “Medical experts have strongly recommended that even after taking two shots of the vaccine, one will require a booster shot to provide an extra layer of protection against the virus…I want at this stage to state that this booster vaccination is compulsory for everyone working within the precincts of Parliament.
“Henceforth, members, staff and ancillary staff will be required to show proof of vaccination before being allowed into any office within the precincts of Parliament.”
