Dr Kuma-Aboagye stated that some of the vaccines were delivered to the various health centres via Zipline Drone Delivery Service.

"The factual position is that there is no shortage of COVID-19 vaccine with the state at present", the ministry said in a statement.

"You can see these numbers continue to go down, and we're very, very happy to see that", DeWine said.

The report noted that 92 per cent of long-term care residents had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by February 23, with that number rising to 95 per cent by March 5.

The state's long-awaited state vaccine website was also up and running on Monday.

"Those 50 to 59 years of age total population in OH is approximately 1.2 million". This will initially support individuals over the age of 80 as part of phase one and will eventually extend to more groups during phase two. "It can be accessed by going to gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov".

In his address, the Director mentioned that over 200,000 persons have had the first dose of vaccination while they wait for the second to begin in April 2021.

"As of (Monday) morning, there are thousands of appointments available through this tool", he said. "We encourage more and more providers to get on, just as quickly as they can. It has driven up rates of hospitalizations and deaths, and it's very hard to control".

He applauded the media for intensifying sensitisation programme on the vaccine, which encouraged Ghanaians to voluntarily avail themselves of the vaccination.

It was recently announced that Wales aims to have offered vaccinations to every eligible adult by 31 July, as long as supply is maintained.

Eleven more people in B.C. died of the disease over the weekend, bringing the province's coronavirus death toll to 1,391.
