Lewandowski came to the training camp of the Polish national team on Monday. With the participation of the captain and the Bayern Munich striker, the press conference was organized almost immediately. In addition to breaking Gerd Mueller’s record in the atmosphere before the Bundesliga and European Championships, an important part of the meeting with reporters included discussions on vaccination.
-I know that they should be vaccinated, but I don’t know yet. I don’t know the exact plan, but there may be an interview with a doctor. I don’t even know what a vaccine is-Robert Lewandowski said at Opalenica’s press conference.
The football player also said that the decision must be consulted with the club. The club also plans to vaccinate the players, but after the European Championship. -We started this topic in our club three days ago. We will be able to vaccinate, but we will only need to be vaccinated when we come back from the European Championships because it takes time. We have just started talking with doctors to understand what it looks like. The negotiation with the club must be the same. As we all know, this topic is important and necessary, but everything must be negotiated with both parties. Before this, no one raised this topic in the club, and the Bayern player said that five minutes do not know what and how, this is not a topic.
At the same time, already on Tuesday WP Sportowe Fakty reportLewandowski had to decide not only to vaccinate, but also to take a single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. After the Polish government’s decision, such an opportunity for Polish athletes appeared in early April.
At that time, a vaccination program for athletes was introduced, with special emphasis on the Olympic team preparing for the Tokyo Olympics and the football team that will participate in the European Championship after the Opalinica training camp.
It is not clear whether other players have already received Lewandowski’s vaccination, or whether it has not yet arrived. However, it can be expected that the team will make the same preparations before leaving the European Championships in St. Petersburg and Seville. Previously, coach Paulo Sousa had been vaccinated at the National Stadium.
