“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 like 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 to the people, especially those grappling with hesitancy about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine”, part of the statement read.
