Just In: Presidency gives update on status of President Buhari after receiving Covid-19 vaccine

The Presidency has given an update on how President Muhammadu Buhari has been feeling so far after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine earlier on today, March 6.

The President and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo received their jabs at the Old Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja on Saturday.

Sharing an update with Nigerians, presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu wrote:

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.”
