Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire launched their COVID-19 vaccination drives on Monday, the first on the planet to use vaccines provided by the World Health Organization’s COVAX program. First in line to get the shots in their respective countries were Ghanian President Nana Akufo-Addo and Patrick Achi, the secretary-general to Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara, according to Agence France-Presse .
