"FDA Has Not Approved Any Covid-19 Vaccine In Ghana" - Delese Darko
The Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Delese Darko says the Organisation has not approved of any covid-19 vaccine for use in Ghana hence cautioning the general public against patronage of such products.
According to her, it has come to the notice of the FDA that some unscrupulous members of the business community are peddling information on the sale of covid-19 vaccines to hospitals and other health facilities.
In a statement signed by the C.E.O and sighted by ThinkNews Online, Mrs. Darko said "The information is ostensibly to inform the general public of the availability of these vaccines from well-known pharmaceutical brands indicating their price ranges"
She added that in view of the above, the FDA wishes to inform all health facilities and the general public that, peddling of such information contravenes Section 118 of the Public Health Act 2012, Act 851 and constitutes a very serious offense.
The Food and Drugs Authority says it wants to assure the general public that it remains committed to protecting the health and safety of consumers.
