Former President John Mahama and his wife Lordina on Tuesday March 2 took the coronavirus vaccine.
They got vaccinated at the Police Hospital in Accra.
Speaking to TV3’s Komla Kluste after getting vaccinated, Mr Mahama said 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.
He added “I agreed to take the vaccine publicly, so everyone would be assured that the vaccines are safe”.
