He said: “It has been three days since I got the AstraZeneca vaccine. I can confirm to you that I felt no after effects. I didn’t have a headache or restlessness.

“I want to tell Lagosians that the speculation of side effects is unfounded. I have taken and Lagos has continued to vaccinate its frontline workers. The vaccine we have has not shown any side effects. There is nothing to worry about. We encourage others to continue to take the vaccine.”
