President Akufo-Addo has called on all unvaccinated persons to take the jab.
“The science tells us that getting vaccinated is the most effective way to defeat the virus and go back to our normal way of life, re-open fully our economy, and return our nation onto the path of progress and prosperity.”
In a Christmas message delivered on Friday, the President stated that the number of Covid-19 active cases are on the rise, hence it is essential for all to adhere to the safety protocols.
“We have, for nearly two (2) years, been wearing masks, avoiding shaking hands and using sanitisers, which have been uncomfortable experiences for us all, even though they have helped keep us safe,” he noted.
The government, he said, has succeeded in securing considerable quantities of vaccines for the country, numbering nearly 23 million doses so far, thus urged unvaccinated persons to get their shots.
“Let us all celebrate the season safely and responsibly and maintain the peace of the nation. It is my fervent hope that this Christmas will be celebrated without any road accidents. Drivers must minimize their speed, take due precaution for other road users, drive without the influence of alcohol, and wear their seat belts, as must all passengers.” he added.
President Akufo-Addo assured that the government is committed to reviving the economy amid the pandemic.
“I appeal to you to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with my government in these trying times,” he urged.
