The Information Service Department (ISD) and the National Commission For Civic Education (NCCE) of the Okaikwei North Municipality have educated residents in the Municipality on the need to take the COVID-19 vaccination seriously.
According to Emmanuella Obeng Koranteng a Civic Education Officer (CEO) of the Commission in the Municipality, the exercise is part of government’s measures to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country.
The education which took place at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Royal-Priesthood Congregation, Abeka was to allay public fears of the adverse effect of the vaccine.
For this reason, she advised the congregation to make themselves available for the vaccination and ignore what people are saying concerning the vaccine being a mark of the 666.
Ms. Obeng Koranteng emphasized that pregnant women cannot take the vaccine and that what to take along when going for the vaccine is a valid ID Card.
She urged the congregation to still observe the COVID-19 protocols even after the vaccination indicatng that the vaccination should not be a substitute for the observation of the protocols.
The NCCE CEO further advised the congregation to eat well, drink a lot of water and take in many vegetables and fruits to boost their immune system.
