Ghana has become the first country to receive coronavirus vaccines through the Covax vaccine-sharing initiative.

Axar.az reports that the World Health Organization (WHO) program aims to ensure that vaccines are shared fairly among all nations.

Covax is aiming to deliver about two billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines globally by the end of the year.

Many rich nations, which began their own vaccinations months ago, have faced criticism for buying or ordering more vaccines than they need.

A total of 600,000 doses of the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University and produced by the Serum Institute of India arrived in Ghana's capital Accra on Wednesday.
