Would the Suspension of COVID-19 vaccines in Austria affect Ghana Negatively?

The Covid-19 pandemic or diseases caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus has not only caused the down fall of many great economies in the world and over 2 million people worldwide but has also caused fear and panic in almost every living being on this planet.

Aside the fact that, the virus is very destructive, fear has also caused several people to refuse taking in the vaccines that have been approved for emergency use, especially in Ghana.

Even before the Covid-19 vaccines were developed numerous number of people were of the view that they will not take the vaccines if the world is able to develop one. And as at now a lot of Ghanaians have said that they will never take it, despite the fact that the first gentlemen of the land, His Excellency President Nana Akuffo Addo has taken the vaccine.

Currently, Ghana only have access to the 600,000 Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine shots and some important personalities and other citizens have taken their first shots but nothing bad or no unusual side effect has caused serious problems to them.

But in Austria the information received or gotten is a bit worrying. The Austrian government has temporary suspended the inoculations with a batch of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine in the country. And this suspension was as a result of a lady who died after taking the vaccine and one lady is currently sick but it is said that she is recovering.

The Federal Office of Safety in Health Care (BASG) revealed that, the suspension decision is taking to found out whether the vaccine caused the the above effects or otherwise.

BASG revealed that, “currently there is no evicdence of causal relationship with the vaccination”.

The above incident in Austria will massively have massive problem in Ghana. Ghana is one the countries that have taken the vaccine shots and due to this the level of fear in the citizens about the Covid-19 vaccine will continue to increase and most people might not take the vaccine anymore.
