After taking the vaccine, the Most Rev Korankye Ankrah described the experience as painless and encouraged all Ghanaians to put away fear and get vaccinated to help overcome the pandemic.
"I want to encourage all of you, Royalhouse Chapel, Christendom, people of God, let’s get this thing done and let's overcome this pandemic once and for all. We want life to return to normalcy, we want churches to operate at full capacity, restaurants, beaches, social programmes, funerals, weddings one more time as it was before”, he said.
