Western Sydney Health rebukes Nicki Minaj with hilarious post
Western Sydney Health came up with a great retort to US rapper Nicki Minaj when she tweeted she knew someone who “became impotent” after getting a COVID jab and her tweet went viral.
So Western Sydney Health stepped in, tweeting: ‘We promise to leave the rapping to @NICKIMINAJ if she leaves medicine to doctors and scientists.’
They then listed the ‘Common side effects after a COVID-19 vaccine’ and then ‘Things that don’t happen after a COVID-19 vaccine.’
Nicki Minaj tweeted on Tuesday about her cousin who had a friend who “became impotent” after receiving the COVID vaccine.

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz (sic) his friend got it and became impotent,” she said.
“His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding.
“So just pray on it and make sure you’re comfortable with ur (sic) decision, not bullied,” Minaj finished.
Anti-vaxxers latched onto the tweet
Minaj’s tweet went viral with at least 108,000 retweets at the time of publication. Anti-vaxxers quickly latched onto the tweet and this caught the attention of the Western Sydney Local Health District.
So Western Sydney Local Health issued their witty reply, clarifying the common side effects of the vaccine are, including pain or swelling at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, fever and chills and joint pain.
Minaj has since tweeted that she will get vaccinated herself, as it would likely be a requirement to “go on tour”.
New South Wales is on Wednesday expected to reach the 80 per cent first dose vaccine benchmark.
On Tuesday, 79.5 per cent of the eligible population had received their first dose.
