Per an interim distribution forecast published by the COVAX facility on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, the consignment is expected to cover at least 3 percent of Ghana’s population.
It said the consignment was part of 240 million doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines licensed to the Serum Institute of India (SII) which have been earmarked for initial distribution to countries signed unto the COVAX facility.
Some 144 countries will also receive the vaccines subject to the World Health Organisation (WHO) Emergency Use List (EUL) within the same period.
According to the distribution forecast by COVAX, based on the limited quantity of doses available, the list of participants was pared down via a WHO-led review process based on four factors including the country’s readiness, as well as an assessment of the risk of health care worker exposure.
