Belgian Olympians get priority vaccines ahead of Tokyo Games


Belgian Olympians traveling to Japan for the Tokyo Games have been promised priority treatment for COVID-19 vaccines

The Belgian Olympic Committee said its 177 Olympic and 55 Paralympic athletes will get vaccine shots while most of the adult population of their age must still wait.

“Because of the small group of athletes, the decision will have as good as no impact on the overall vaccination campaign,” the committee said in a statement.
