Pending the circulation of the vaccine in Ghana, he urges all citizens to strictly stick to all covid-19 protocols in other to cut down the rate at which the disease is spreading.

Akufo-Addo says: “Fellow Ghanaians, the roll out of the vaccination campaign does not mean we should let our guard down, and discard the safety protocols that have served us well thus far. We cannot afford to let our guard down. Let us continue to wash our hands under running water, maintain social distancing, refrain from shaking hands and hugging, and, most importantly,wear our masks.”
