The Ghana chapter of the International Human Rights Commission has written extensively to condemn the decision of the government of Ghana through the Ministry of Health to forcefully vaccinate Ghanaians with the Covid-19 jabs due to low patronage.
Ghana is just one of the many countries that have been hit hard by the devastating effect of the covid-19 pandemic.
Just as many western developed countries are taking steps to curb the spread of the disease on a large scale, Ghana did the same. Then country started managing the virus spread by closing its borders and starting mass country-wide vaccinations.
Though the borders are open to air traffic and international travel is back to normal, land borders of the country remain closed and access to the airlines must follow strict protocols put in place by the health officials.
In a new development, the Minister of Health, Ghana Kwaku Agyemang-Manu announced the decision of the government to forcefully vaccinate all the citizens. But the International Human Rights Commission thinks the decision is against the rights of the people and must be withdrawn noting that it stands against articles 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the United Nations Human Rights Declaration.
