16 September 2021
The UK has a strong partnership with Ghana and we are supporting the COVID-19 pandemic response there. I [Minister Duddridge] discussed UK support to Ghana in a meeting with Ghana's Minister for Health in Accra earlier this month. I [Minister Duddridge] am delighted to confirm that on 18 August a shipment of 249,600 UK-donated AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines arrived in Ghana. These vaccines will help protect frontline health workers, vulnerable people most at risk from COVID-19, and those in need of their second vaccine dose.
