Ghana has so far administered over 700,000 vaccines since the mass vaccination exercise began in March.
According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), a total of 703,752 vaccines have been administered as at Sunday, April 11.
There have been concerns about the shortage of the AstraZeneca vaccines procured from the Serum Institute of India.
Many are due for their second shots but delays have hit the facility across the world.
“Limited stocks and supply bottlenecks are putting Covid-19 vaccines out of reach of many people in this region,” said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO Africa regional director.
But WHO as well as the African Centre for Disease Control (CDC) have recommended that the AstraZeneca vaccine should continue to be used despite concerns having been raised over its safety.
Ghana has so far recorded 91,260 cases of coronavirus as at Wednesday, April 7 with 754 deaths. About 89,092 have recovered from the disease.
