What does it feel like to have COVID-19?

On 2 March 2021, a woman receives a jab of the COVID-19 vaccine, AstraZeneca/Oxford, at the Ridge Hospital in Accra, Ghana, as Ghana’s Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service rolls out its national COVID-19 vaccination campaign. As the global rollout of COVAX vaccines accelerates, the first COVID-19 vaccination campaigns in Africa using COVAX doses began 1 March 2021 in Ghana and Côte D’Ivoire. These campaigns are the among the first to use doses provided by the COVAX Facility’s Gavi COVAX Advanced Market Commitment (AMC). This is an historic step towards ensuring equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines worldwide as part of the largest ever vaccine procurement and supply operation. COVAX is co-led by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; WHO, the Coalition for Innovations in Epidemic Preparedness (CEPI) and UNICEF which leads the procurement and delivery of vaccines. It is the only global initiative that works with governments and manufacturers to ensure that COVID-19 vaccines are available worldwide, for both high-income and low-income countries.
