The Okyeame Kwame Foundation has provided some vaccines to vaccinate about 270 people who tested negative during the Free Hepatitis B Screening and Vaccination Exercise organized on July 28 2016 in Ho, to mark world Hepatitis B day.
It will be recalled that on July 28, 2016, the Okyeame Kwame Foundation in partnership with MDS Lancet Laboratories, supported by the Regional Health Directorate, Ho and Kekeli Radio, carried out a free Hepatitis B Screening and Vaccination Exercise in Ho. On the day, a total number of 420 people were freely screened and those who tested negative vaccinated.
“This year marks the 7th year of my journey to eradicate Hepatitis B from Ghana. The vaccines for the second dose have been made available to the Regional Hospital in Ho, so all who received their first vaccinations should kindly go to the Regional Hospital for their second shot for free. You can call 0262500680, if you have any questions or need any clarifications.” Okyeame Kwame commented.
The last vaccinations for those screened in Ho will be administered on January 28, 2017.
