According to the District Health Director, Esther Dua Oyinka, some of the reasons noted for the high hesitancy in the district include the fact that there is misinformation that the ruling New Patriotic Party government wants to use the vaccine to change the minds of electorate in the district to vote for the NPP in 2024 and subsequent elections.

“Even some are saying it is the government that has put in certain things to make up for the vaccine to vaccinate them so that it will change their minds from voting for any other party except the sitting party,” she lamented.

The Health directorate estimated to vaccinate about fifty thousand, one hundred and four (50,104) people in the district by the end of this year, however, only 282 have fully been vaccinated since the inception of the vaccination exercise.

About 820 persons who took the first jab are however hesitating to take the second dose.
