“Almost everybody should feel safe to take the vaccine but if you’re in doubt, talk to your doctor who knows your medical history. One thing that we have to be clear is that, the side effects we’re talking about are in most vaccines. It’s all a sign that your body is responding and there’s no cause for alarm.

“It’s very important to educate people on the vaccine because if we don’t vaccinate a large number of people, it will be in vain.

There’s nothing that doesn’t have any side effects. As I mentioned, it’s not just for #COVID19 vaccines. It’s true that the vaccine will change your immune system but it’s changing it for the better,” he told Morning Starr host Francis Abban Tuesday.
