Patrick Tetteh says that is inflicting disaffection amongst members.

Health promotion officer at the regional health directorate, Sally Barba Owusu Addo, says although the area isn’t recording new cases of Covid-19, there may be the necessity to construct herd immunity.

Religious beliefs, worry of vaccination and facet effects of the Covid-19 vaccines are among the many elements crippling the consumption of the dose.
