England midfielder Mason Mount revealed that the missing part of the Euro 2020 final run played a part in his decision to get the Covid-19 vaccine. England is fresh from trashing Andorra and is set to face Hungary on Tuesday. The international break has been conducted amid speculation about the rate of vaccination in football. Gareth Southgate revealed that he is not sure how many in the England squad are fully vaccinated. The majority of professional footballers have been hesitant to reveal whether they have received the jabs.
“Going through that experience, missing the game, a top, the top game kind of did have an effect on my decision.” England midfielder Mason Mount said. “But I think for players and personally-wise it’s down to someone and it is down to their decision how they feel about it. I don’t think you can force anyone to get it but, for me, going through that experience did make me want to get it and get it quite quickly.”
“At their age they are more open to some of these conspiracy theories because they are reading social media more,” Gareth Southgate said about the influence of social media. “They are perhaps more vulnerable to those sort of views. From what I can see there is a bit of confusion around.”There’s a thing called medical confidentiality which seems to be being totally overlooked in a lot of areas at the moment. These aren’t our players. I don’t think the clubs would thank us for sharing that sort of information and frankly, it is personal to the players. I’m sure you have GDPR at your workplace, you’ll be conscious of all of that.”
