Germany is considering making Covid vaccinations mandatory for all players, despite the fact that a slew of Bayern Munich stars have yet to receive the vaccine.
According to reports, German officials are considering making Covid vaccinations mandatory for all players.
That might be an issue for Bayern Munich, who still have a number of great players who haven’t had the vaccine.
According to estimates, roughly 10% of Bundesliga players have not received the vaccine.
Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry, and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting of Bayern Munich are among them, according to reports.
And the Bavarian giants are rumored to be separating their unvaccinated players from the rest of the squad.
The decision comes as Germany fights rising infection rates.
Health officials are currently debating whether or not to impose lockdown restrictions on the country’s unvaccinated citizens.
Professional athletes are being debated as to whether they should be subject to the same rules as amateur athletes.
In areas like restaurants and hotels, Bavaria has already implemented a “2G” system.
Anyone who had been vaccinated, recovered from Covid, or tested negative could enter these sites under earlier guidelines.
Only the vaccinated and recovered are now permitted entry.
This complicates Bayern’s preparations for the upcoming derby against Borussia Dortmund.
The German heavyweights meet on December 4, and Bayern will undoubtedly want to assemble their team in advance of the top-of-the-table showdown.
