Six hundred thousand doses of lifesaving COVID-19 vaccine from the UN-partnered COVAX initiative have arrived in Ghana: a historic first for the international partnership to provide equitable inoculations for all. “Today we are very happy to receive the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX facility,” said Anne-Claire Dufay, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Representative in Ghana. These are the first coronavirus shots from the COVAX scheme to be distributed outside India, where the vaccine is being produced under license. The COVAX Facility plans to deliver close to two billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines this year.
