NDC leader, John Mahama has joined the list of few Ghanaians who have taken the Covid 19 vaccine.
Mr Mahama and his wife Lordina on Tuesday March 2 took the coronavirus vaccine.
After taking the vaccine, the Former President spoke to the media and urged fellow Ghanaians to go for the vaccine too.
He said that the only way the country could defeat the virus is to vaccinate every body.
“I believe that all Ghanaians should avail themselves for the vaccines and indeed in Africa, we should be less hesitant about taking vaccines.
Because all of us took vaccines when we were growing up, and it is due to these vaccines that today our children do not get all kinds of diseases like polio and smallpox among others.
“So vaccines are useful in preserving our health and so Ghanaians should disregard all these rumours,” he said.
John Mahama added “I agreed to take the vaccine publicly, so everyone would be assured that the vaccines are safe”.
Yesterday, March 1, 2021, the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, his wife, Rebecca were the first to take vaccine.
Vice President, Dr. Bawumia and his wife, Samira also took the vaccine at the police hospital in Accra.
