COVID-19 Vaccine: Buhari Has No Side Effects – Presidency
The Presidency has dispelled fears that President Muhammadu Buhari suffered side effects after he received the first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu disclosed this in a statement.
The Herald earlier reported that Buhari got vaccinated Saturday at the State House, Abuja at 11:51 am and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo got vaccinated at 11:57 am.
“In response to press enquiries, I like to assure all citizens, and to dispel fears and misconceptions about the safety of the vaccine administered on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN earlier this morning.
“After he got his jab, the President felt normal and went about doing his job. If there are side effects that follow, we will be open about that but so far there is nothing of a side effect, serious or mild on the President. He is carrying on as normal.
“We hope this will help to send a strong message among the people, especially those grappling with hesitancy about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine,” Shehu’s statement read.
