"No Chilling This December Without Vaccination Cards" - Okraku Mantey

The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, said vaccination cards will confirm access into event venues come December.

Mark Okraku Mantey added that those without the cards would be denied entry.

He added that the government has to put these checks in place to prevent any eventualities after the December festivities.

According to him, people without Covid -19 vaccination will not be allowed entry into the places they might have bought tickets for.

In a report filed by, Okraku Mantey said the government has outlined requirements and guidelines to control and avoid the spread of COVID-19 during the December festivities.

He said people who have not been vaccinated and do not have vaccination cards would not be allowed entries to social gatherings.

“Vaccination cards will be required to enter, you must show that you have been vaccinated to be able to enter”

He also added that children above the age of five would be required to wear a mask which would only be removed during eating and drinking.

The Deputy Tourism Minister explained that if government does not put some checks and balances in place, there is the likelihood of challenges after December.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has lamented the low turnout of people for the vaccination exercise in the country despite the availability of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Dr. Kwame Amponsah Achiano, the Programmes Manager of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation at the GHS revealed that the country has a lot of vaccines in store but the people are not turning out to be inoculated.

Dr. Achiano said the officials sit in their facilities all day with as little as two people turning up to be vaccinated.
