Getting vaccinated abroad or waiting for your turn in the country: after River’s experience in the US, what will the other big teams do
To get vaccinated or not to get vaccinated, that is the question. Or at least that is what the River leaders thought when they confirmed that the millionaire team was going to make its preseason in Orlando, United States. This situation allowed those of Núñez to be able to vaccinate the entire campus without problems, and they did. However, the other big teams in Argentina they don’t have a plan and they will wait to be inoculated when it is their turn.
The 27 footballers of the Millionaire delegation were vaccinated at the same airport in Orlando with the Johnson & Johnson, as it is a single dose. This vaccine still does not have the authorization of the ANMAT in our country, although as they were vaccinated abroad, there are no complaints or claims on the part of the national authorities.
As to Boca, your president, Jorge Amor Ameal hinted that the Xeneize team will wait for the vaccination in our country: “Boca’s position is to bet on life hoping that soon we can all be vaccinated”said the leader, who did not want to make further statements.
