Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday he had experienced minor side effects from the coronavirus vaccine after receiving the first shot on Tuesday, the Interfax news agency reported, citing a TV interview.
“I woke up the next morning after the vaccination and it seemed to me I felt slight pain in muscles. I took a thermometer… my temperature was normal,” he told the state Rossiya 1 TV channel.
He said he also had an uncomfortable feeling on the site of the injection.
Putin did not reveal which of three Russian vaccines he had taken, saying only the doctor who inoculated him knows that.
