The Presidency has alerted Nigerians that Presidency Muhammadu Buhari is doing well after taking coronavirus vaccine today, March 6.
The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, who also took the vaccine, according to a statement by the senior special assistant to the President on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, is also doing fine.
Garba Shehu said in a statement today, March 6, that the clarification is in response to press enquiries inundating his office about the President’s health after the vaccine.
“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.”
