Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, Member of Parliament Tema West Constituency, has joined a section of the public to promote participation in the COVID-19 vaccination exercise and to instil public confidence.
He said the vaccines were critical to the prevention and control of COVID-19 and a vital tool in the national fight against the spread of the virus.
He called on the qualified constituents to take the vaccines.
Mr Ahenkorah said the government through the Ministry of Health had made progress in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 although daily infections have recently increased.
He emphasized that the vaccines were safe and efficient and the surest way to get immunity against the virus.
The MP, who joined his spouse and other eligible persons in the Municipality to take their first jab, in an interview with Ghana News Agency at Sakumono near Tema, called on leaders to assuage the fears of the public and take the vaccination.
He said some naysayers had sought to heighten fears and downplayed the incredible efforts and strides made by the government in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
