I won't take the COVID-19 vaccine - Manasseh Azure tells why

Manasseh Azure claims that there are more needy people in society who need the vaccine than he does, so he will not waste the dose because he has been chosen as one of the first 800 journalists to receive the vaccine on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021.

The intelligent and thoughtful journalist stressed on his Facebook page that he and his colleagues may like to be vaccinated, but that there are more people who will need the vaccine now than him, so he will not.

he explained;

“WHY I WON’T TAKE THE VACCINE WITH JOURNALISTS TODAY******************************************************************Last night, I received an invitation from an executive of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) to come for the Covid-19 vaccination today at the Ghana International Press Centre.

I asked further questions and I was told that 800 doses of the vaccine provided to Ghana through the Covax initiative have been allocated to journalists.

I was excited about the opportunity. I have never bought into the wild conspiracy theories. I have been looking forward to the opportunity to get vaccinated. And here was one! On second thought, however, I decided to decline the invitation so I communicated it to the GJA executive and gave my reason.

I’m relatively young and do not have any known underlying health condition. I know many active or retired journalists are old. I also know journalists who are young but have underlying health conditions that make them more susceptible to the vagaries of Covid-19.

With the limited doses available, I don’t think it is right to go and get the jab while those who need it more than I may not have the opportunity. Ghana has a population of about 30 million. We took delivery of 600,000 doses from the Covax arrangement. And if each person is to get two doses of the vaccine, then it means we will cover 300,000 people.

(I stand to be corrected). I’m eager to get this vaccine to protect myself, my family, and those I come into contact with. But I know there are many people out there–in this case, many journalists–who need it more than I. I’ll wait” He said.
