Tokyo 2020: Some GB Olympic athletes ‘don’t want vaccine’ – BOA chief Andy Anson

The head of the British Olympic Association (BOA) says the organisation is still “trying to convince” some athletes to have the Covid vaccine before Tokyo 2020 starts next month.

Chief executive Andy Anson said “well over 90%” of British athletes will have two vaccine doses by the Olympics.

But he also admitted “there are individuals who didn’t want to be vaccinated”.
