There has been a shortage of Childhood vaccines in recent times that has called for a series of discussions in the media space over some time now.
The Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Service over the weekends announced the first consignment of childhood vaccines received as a result of the effort they put in place to meet the demands of Ghanaians and ensure quality healthcare delivery.
Reacting to the swift attention taken by the ministry for the supply of the vaccines over a short period of its shortage, Mr. Abdulai Jafaru, A.KA King Jafa, who is the Deputy Ahafo Regional Nasara Coordinator for the NPP stated that, the government must be complimented for what he described as rapt attention to the plea of Ghanaians by ensuring the provision of the much talked about childhood vaccines in the shortest possible time.
In a radio discussion on High Radio Morning Show titled High Morning Breeze chaired by Kwaku Mensah Abrampa, Mr. Abdulai Jafaru indicated that it is very necessary to commend the government for the quickest attention in response to the shortage of the vaccine we experienced in the health sector.
He added that the vaccines came in the largest quantity and the ministry has begun its distributions to the various health facilities to be used on the children who needed them the most. He said the effort taken by the government to procure the vaccines depicts how the NPP thinks and care about the needs and wants of Ghanaians hence they must be applauded.
On his part, Mr. Yussif Issah Mohammed popularly known as Kowaa, the deputy communication officer of the NDC in the Tano South constituency of the Ahafo region rebutted the commendation claimed by the NPP reiterating that God in his wisdom created the human body with time proportionate for everything that must be taken into the body hence the inability of the NPP government to ensure vaccines supply on time but denied some children from taking the necessary vaccines at the right time needs no appraisal.
He said the shortage of the vaccine will cause a lot of health effects because those children who needed to take polio or other vaccines during the shortage period may end up being affected with the ailments which he said the Akufo Addo government and the health ministry must be condemned for putting the lives of Ghanian children into danger over their non-performance in government.
