Ghana is first nation in world to receive COVAX

Thursday, 25 February 2021 | AP | Accra

Ghana has become the first country in the world to receive vaccines acquired through the United Nations-backed COVAX initiative with a delivery of 6,00,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine made by the Serum Institute of India.

The vaccines, delivered by UNICEF, arrived at Accra’s international airport early Wednesday and are part of the first wave of Covid-19 vaccines being sent by COVAX, an international cooperative programme formed to make sure low- and middle-income countries have fair access to Covid-19 vaccines.
