The Ghana Health Service has announced plans of updating the status of all persons who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 deadly virus.
A statement issued by GHS said the move has become necessary following the difficulty travellers encounter in verifying their vaccination status using the barcode at the back of their COVID-19 vaccination card.
This was contained in a statement signed and issued by the Director-General of the GHS, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye on Thursday, August 5, 2021.
The GHS has also set up a desk at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) to help travellers with their vaccination verification process.
“Fully vaccinated outbound travellers (i.e., travellers who have received two doses of AstraZeneca or Sputnik-V vaccine) departing from KIA should contact the Vaccination Verification Desk of the Port Health Unit at the Departure Hall of KIA to verify their vaccination status prior to departure,” the statement said.
The statement further added that other fully vaccinated individuals who want to verify their vaccination status should visit the nearest health facility or District Health Directorate for assistance.
