Ghanaian football fans to take Covid jabs at league centres; GFA

Ghana FA General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo has revealed plans from the GFA to rollout vaccines to football fans at league centres to help fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Prosper Addo, clubs will be working with COVID vaccination officials before, during and after games to help control the spread of the new Omicron variant and other variants of the virus.

“December has been declared month of vaccination at match venues in Ghana and we will ensure that supporters get vaccinated so that in January when government moves into full swing, soccer fans would be ready so that we don’t have anybody missing on the beautiful game of football,” he said said on Luv FM.

Prosper Addo believes football supporters in the country need to understand the importance of this vaccination exercise and take it seriously to avoid premature casualties.

Earlier this month, Ghana’s presidential advisor for COVID-19, Dr Nsiah Asare also reiterated government’s plans to implement a policy to deny persons without COVID-19 vaccine certificates access to the various stadiums in the country ahead of the 2021/2022 Ghana Premier League season.

The Government of Ghana is hoping to vaccinate 20 million people before the end of the year 2021, as part of efforts to get herd immunity.

Government has thus introduced new measures to get more Ghanaians to take the jab.

It has thus declared December 2021 as a month of COVID-19 vaccination after which some restrictions would be announced.
