The wife of the Anambra State Governor, Ebelechukwu Obiano, has received the COVID-19 vaccine in the United States of America.
In a video clip posted on social media, Mrs Obiano could be seen answering questions from a health worker who attended to her while she sat in her car.
After receiving a dose of the vaccine, she was asked to wait for 15 minutes in case of any reaction.
The health worker said an ambulance was within reach to attend to her should the need arise.
The governor’s wife, who was filmed by another occupant of the car, likened COVID-19 to a war, saying the vaccine was a necessary weapon of survival.
Mrs Obiano said,
“Coronavirus is real, coronavirus is killing people. We have to take this vaccine. This vaccine will save us. With God’s help and by His grace, it will not harm us in any way and manner.
“It took us a lot of efforts; it took my daughter, Dr Ogechi Obiano, a lot of efforts to get me booked for this vaccine. And thankfully I am able to get it.”
While regretting that efforts to get her husband a dose of the vaccine failed, she said she could not tell when the vaccine would get to Anambra.
