There seems to be a contradiction in the number of persons vaccinated against the coronavirus so far in the country, as the President of the Republic, President Akufo Addo and Ghana Health Service give contradictory figures.

The Director of Health Promotions at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Dacoster Aboagye, in an interview with the Accra-based Asaase Radio monitored by GhanaVanguard.com on Wednesday, December 15, revealed that a total of 7.5 million Ghanaians have been vaccinated.

“…As we speak, as of last two days when I checked the data, we had vaccinated 7.5 million. This means that we have actually added between 2.5 to three million jabs,” Dr. Dacosta revealed on Asaase Radio.

However, the President, in his 27th covid-19 address to the nation, also indicated that government has been able to vaccinate 6.4 million Ghanaians as at the time of his address on Wednesday, December 15.

“So far, we have been able to administer only 6,420,973 doses out of the 17.7 million we have at our disposal…,” President Akufo-Addo stated in his address.

The two figures have since created confusion, as one cannot figure out what the exact or correct figure of vaccinated people in the country is.
