Vaccine shortage: Health Minister to appear before Parliament today
The Health Minister who was invited to an emergency meeting with the Parliamentary Committee on Health, Tuesday, 28 February 2023, failed to show up.
The Committee also invited the Ghana Health Service (GHS), and other institutions on the same issue.
They all failed to appear before the committee, except the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).
There is a shortage of vaccines used for routine vaccination in children from childbirth to 18 months in some parts of the country.
This is likely to increase the vulnerability of the very children the vaccines are meant to protect.
The Western, Greater Accra, Central, Upper West, Bono, Eastern and Upper East regions are among the regions affected by the vaccine shortage.
