• Sputnik V
• Covid-19 Vaccine Jassen

“The FDA continues to use the emergency authorization pathway, which is the accepted procedure for all national regulatory authorities globally, to ensure timely access to quality and safe medical products including vaccines during this pandemic,” said the release.
The Authority, therefore, wishes to assure the public that all the approved COVID-19 vaccines have been subjected to vigorous safety parameters and therefore the public are to receive these vaccines without any reservations.
The FDA remains committed to safeguarding the health and safety of the public as mandated by the public health Act, 2012(Act 851).
Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced last Sunday that the government was still confident of achieving the target of vaccinating 20 million of its population against the pandemic by year-end.
