The Food and Drugs Authority has cautioned the general public against the purchase of vaccines purported to be fighting COVID-19 in Ghana.
According to the FDA, some individuals are approaching health facilities and pharmacies claiming to be selling FDA approved vaccines. The FDA says it has not approved any such vaccines.
“It has come to the attention of the Food and Drugs Authority (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.“
“The information is ostensibly to inform the general public of the availability of these vaccines from well known pharmaceutical brands indicating their price ranges” it said in a statement.
