The National Commission for Civic Education, NCCE has undergone training to embark on a sensitization drive on the COVID-19 Vaccination exercise. The virtual training sought to empower Civic Educators to engage citizens with the right technical and primary information for the purposes of mass and community communication on the exercise. Again the training equipped Civic Educators to actively reach out to Ghanaians on the need to accept the AstraZeneca ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 Vaccine to help curb the rate of COVID-19 spread in Ghana. Currently, Ghana's active case count stands at a worrying 6,658. P Dr. Anthony Enimil, an Infectious Disease Specialist at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology was the trainer. Dr. Enimil took Civic Educators through the required areas needed for public education. He outlined a number of strategies put in place by stakeholders to roll out the vaccination exercise in Ghana and called on the NCCE to provide the right public education for national acceptance. Civic Educators on the platform seized the opportunity to ask all the relevant questions to aid the scheduled public engagements. Chairman of NCCE, Ms. Josephine Nkrumah, Deputy Chairman, Operations, Mr. Samuel Asare Akuamoah and Directors at NCCE were among the participants who benefited from the training. Deputy Chairman, Operations, Mr. Samuel Asare Akuamoah charged staff of NCCE to intensify public education on COVID-19 especially on the vaccination exercise and general public observation of the COVID-19 safety protocols.
