The German Government has donated 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines to Ghana.

The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin briefed the Presidential Press Corps at the Jubilee House, Monday August 30, 2021 in Accra.

“As we speak, President Akufo-Addo has dispatched a plane to Germany to take delivery of the 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines,” he said,

The briefing was on the President’s seven-day working visit to Germany, from Sunday, August 22, at the invitation of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The donation is part of the pledge made by Germany to make about 70 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines available to help the continent’s bid to vaccinate its 1.3 billion population.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel made the pledged last Friday after a summit with African leaders on the G20’s Compact with Africa Initiative held last week.
