ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Housing and Works Tariq Bashir Cheema denied using political influence to get the coronavirus jab, after videos of him went viral on social media a day earlier.

A video showed the minister receiving the jab and what appears to be his family as well, at their residence by a medical team.

The video went viral on social media, with many claiming Cheema was able to get the vaccine using his political influence.

However, the minister denied the reports.

He said a University of Health Sciences (UHS) medical team had arrived at his residence to administer a booster of the trial vaccine. The minister said it was the same team that had earlier arrived at his residence to administer the first dose of the trial vaccine.
