A large number of people yesterday thronged various vaccination centres in Accra, Tema and Kumasi to be vaccinated against the coronavirus with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
There were long queues at many of the 123 vaccination centres in the two hotspot regions, as members of the public, both young and old, waited for their turn.
The process was, however, slow in some areas due to network fluctuations for the data input on smart devices and tablets.
The sheer large numbers gave an indication that public confidence in the vaccine has increased.
Some commercial drivers in the capital called on the government to prioritise their vaccination under the COVID-19 vaccination exercise that has started.
This came to light when the Daily Graphic team visited some vaccination centres in Accra, Tema and Kumasi.
More than 177,000 people are expected to be vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccines over the next four days.
As of yesterday, the country had 6,004 active COVID-19 cases, with 522 new cases over the previous week and 930 deaths.
