‘I wonder why football players have doubts about vaccine, so I can take it away. ‘

Head of the Dutch Association for Intensive Care Diederik Gommers would like to discuss the coronavaccin with footballers. The last few days the vaccination was the subject of discussion at the Dutch team, after several players indicated that they do not want to vaccinate themselves (for the time being).
โ€œEveryone can decide for themselves whether to take a vaccine or not, but they do have an example function,โ€ says Gommers in conversation with RTL Nieuws. โ€œIt is important to explain why they say no first and then yes. Here you help the young people who are in doubt, because more explanations are given.โ€
For this reason, Gommers would like to talk to football players about the corona vaccination. โ€œIm curious where the doubt is, so I can remove it. People often simply need more explanation.โ€
Among others Wout Weghorst, Memphis Decay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Matthijs de Ligt announced that they would not (yet) vaccinate themselves against the coronavirus. The latter, however, came back to that later: De Lijt is going to be vaccinated as soon as possible.
