More than 1.2 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine donated by the United States arrived in Ghana on Sunday.
The vaccines were delivered through COVAX as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s global efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
“These vaccines will save lives here in Ghana. Vaccines, along with other preventive protocols, will help control the pandemic and slow the development of new variants. We stand with the Government of Ghana in its fight to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said U.S Ambassador Sullivan.
The United States has worked closely with Ghana since the start of the pandemic and has contributed over $30 million to support public health efforts and the COVID-19 response in Ghana.
The United States has already donated and delivered more than 125 million doses to more than 80 countries and economies worldwide.
