He went on to say that the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service are collaborating on a thorough stakeholder engagement program to ensure that health workers’ rights are honored within the legislative framework that prohibits people from working if they have not been vaccinated.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health will initiate a nationwide covid-19 immunization month on December 1, 2021, to allow individuals, including health workers, to get vaccinated.

Speaking to Kassapa News’ Akokoraba Nyarko, Dr. Aboagye stated that the government has brought in 12.3 million doses of vaccines through various measures, with 4 million arriving in the previous four weeks and over 5 million reaching people’s hands.

He explained that during the initial segmentation of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise, health workers were given priority at a time when vaccines were in short supply and that if they did not get vaccinated during the vaccination month, the only way they could enter any hospital would be to show a negative PCR test result.

He, therefore, advised health workers in various health facilities in the country to take advantage of the vaccination month and get vaccinated before the new year begins.
