COVID-19 Vaccine is out in Ghana, and the government plans to hold a celebrative ceremony for receiving the donated vaccine.
With a 90% percent success recovery rate from the COVID-19 virus, coupled with the numerous side effect floating on social media, most Ghanaians are skeptical about taking the vaccine.
Despite All The Gold In Ghana, We Receive Free Vaccines Because We Are A Poor Country
Ghana has become the first country to receive vaccines through the UN-backed COVAX scheme, which aims to get COVID-19 vaccines to the world’s most vulnerable people, in a global effort to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
A flight carrying 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India landed in Ghana’s capital, Accra, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
Doubt In Vaccine Swarms Ghanaian Citizens
Many have spoken out against taking in the vaccines, some are have even embraced theories claiming it could be part of a depopulation attempt by the west.
Conscious rapper Zakisha Brown who hails from Canada but is steadily promoting her music in Ghana in her attempt to connect and build a life in Africa had much to say about the vaccine.
Zakisha Brown Weighs In
In an interview, she made it clear she would refuse to take the vaccine even if she discovered she had a severe case of coronavirus. According to her, she would rather utilise natural remedies to stay healthy.
She stated in reply to when will she take the vaccines “That is Hell To The Hell Of All Hell No”
She continued “Are You Crazy. I’m going to eat my soya sauce, which helps prevent cancer, I’m going to be taking my vitamin c, Im going to be drinking my orange with the real vitamin c in it, Im going to be boosting my immune system, Im gonna stay vegan, Im gonna keep mucus out of my body because without mucus in the body sickness can’t stay.”
More depth to her refusal of the vaccine.
She later ended her comments with the following. “Why am I gonna trust the same government that tried to kill my people years ago, the Tuskeegee experiment”
Tuskegee Experiment vs COVID-19 Vaccine
The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male, was an “ethical unjustified” study conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the United States Public Health Service and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The purpose of this study was to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis.
Although the African-American men who participated in the study were told that they were receiving free health care from the federal government of the United States, they were not.
Zakisha closed her comments with “They have a history of lies and corruption and side effects of vaccines, there have already been 4 cases of people Cerebro pulses from vaccines. If there is a new strand of COVID-19, how is the Vaccine they have going to fix that?”
FashionGHANA.com is simply quoting this passage from the interview and is currently not advising anyone to take or not to take the vaccines. That is absolutely up to you.
However we can definitely assure you Zakisha Brown is a very intelligent lady with a lot of books under her belt.
