The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has started turning away unvaccinated clients at its premises. This is in line with the implementation of the "No Vaccination, No Entry" policy announced by Mr Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, Minister of Health.
In an update on vaccination on December 1, 2021, the minister entreated all government agencies and public institutions to enforce the policy from January 2022.
According to the directive, staff of public institutions and visitors must show proof of vaccination to be allowed access to the premises and offices. On Wednesday, the AMA denied scores of visitors access to its premises without COVID-19 vaccination cards.
The Assembly had "No COVID-19 Vaccination Card, No Entry" inscriptions at the entrance.
A security officer who had a thermometer gun at the entrance said they had been directed to inspect vaccination cards before allowing staff and clients into the premises.
Meanwhile, at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (GARH), the Ghana News Agency observed that security officers at the hospital were strict in enforcing the safety protocols to prevent the spread of the pandemic, including the wearing of nose masks.
