After the Juventus midfielder, Adrien Rabiot tested positive for Covid-19, La Repubblica via Soccer Italy has now announced that 98% of Serie A players have been vaccinated against the infection, an impressive number.
Anti-Vaxxers have slowed the rate of vaccination against the disease around the world, and some of them are on Serie A club cadres.
The report says seven out of twenty clubs in the competition are fully vaccinated.
There are around 20 players and staff who still refuse to be vaccinated.
One club has five anti-Vaxxers on its roster, while a few others have two, and some clubs have only one player who has not yet been vaccinated.
It also shows that most of those who refused to be vaccinated are from Africa and Northern Europe.
It remains unclear how many Juve players will continue to oppose the vaccine.
It is also not clear whether Rabiot has been vaccinated, as a person could still be infected if fully vaccinated.
Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic had tested positive for the virus and claimed to have been fully vaccinated at the time, as reported by Sports illustrated.
Juve will wait for Rabiot to fully recover and get back into their games as he has been an important part of their team in this campaign.
