California Governor Gavin Newsom was left with muscle weakness and fatigue after receiving two jabs within days of each other, friends of his claim.
The governor was last seen in public on October 27, after receiving a COVID-19 booster shot in Oakland. He had gotten a flu shot on October 22.
Newsom finally appeared in a photo attending Ivy Getty’s star-studded wedding this past weekend after disappearing from the public eye for nearly two weeks.
Newsom is seen wearing a sharp tuxedo with a black mask as he looks on while Gordon Getty gives his granddaughter Ivy Love Getty a kiss at the end of the aisle at the lavish San Francisco wedding – officiated by top Democrat Nancy Pelosi – on Saturday.
Newsom is a long-time friend of the billionaire oil tycoon Getty family, who have financially backed his political campaigns.
The sighting comes as a surprise as questions had been swirling about the Democrat Governor’s whereabouts and health. Newsom abruptly pulled out of the COP26 climate summit in Scotland last week – for which he had spent weeks preparing – and his office cited ‘family obligations as the reason.
But now, a source close to the Newsom family tells DailyMail.com he had a reaction to the shots that left him with muscle weakness and fatigue.
His office, however, has denied the claim and Eleni Kounalakis, a fellow Democrat who led the California delegation in Glasgow after Newsom pulled out of the summit, said that his absence was due to family matters.
