Premier League Covid-19

The Premier League revealed that more than two-thirds of their players have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 while 81 percent have received at least one dose. Figures in the UK showed that 60-65 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 39 have received a single dose. The national average of the UK is 86 percent while 79 percent have been administered both doses. This shows that the Premier League vaccinated percentage is significantly lower than the national average but more for the specific demographic. Jurgen Klopp recently said he does not understand why a number of players are against vaccination.

Reports suggested that 13 of the 20 clubs had a squad where less than 50 percent of the players were fully vaccinated. The league then offered a special reward to the club that has the most vaccinated players. Wolves revealed that all their players have received two jabs while clubs like Leeds, Brentford, and Liverpool have 90 percent of their players fully vaccinated.

“The Premier League can confirm today that 81 percent of players have received at least one Covid-19 vaccination dose with 68 percent now fully vaccinated.” a statement from the Premier League read about the Covid-19 vaccine. “Vaccination rates are collected by the Premier League on a weekly basis and the league continues to work with clubs to encourage vaccination among players and club staff. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and player vaccination rates will be communicated at appropriate intervals in the future.”
