Macky Sall is a Senegalese politician who has been President of Senegal since April 2012. He was re-elected President in the first round voting in February 2019 Senegalese presidential election. President Macky Sall on Thursday took his coronavirus shot live on television.
“Just vaccinated for #Covid19. Hope is allowed for all. I appeal to the entire population to do the same.
“Together, we have been fighting an enemy who threatens our health and lives. Today that we have the weapon to reduce the spread of our enemy or even eliminate it, we must not miss the opportunity,” his post read in part.
The West African nation took delivery of its first vaccine consignment earlier this week with Health Minister Abdoulaye Diouf Sarr taking the first shot.
Sall becomes the latest African leader to publicly take their shot. South African president Cyril Ramaphosa and Equatorial Guinea president Obiang Nguema have all taken their shots in public.
