The Romanian tennis player Simona halep, reigning Wimbledon champion, has received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in the Cantacurzino Institute of Bucharest, this Wednesday and taking into account his sports calendar. You do not compete on these dates and you can have the second dose after your participation in the WTA tournament in Dubai, from March 7 to 13.
Halep, 29 years old and world number three, announced that he had suffered the coronavirus with mild effects at the end of 2020. He has entered the vaccination program in Romania as Phase II is underway, which includes Olympic athletes. This has been underlined by Valeriu Gheorgita, coordinator of the National Vaccination Campaign in the country.
“I wanted to get vaccinated. I was vaccinated with Pfizer. I’m fine, I haven’t had any side effects for now. It is for the good of all and that is why I decided to get vaccinated, ”said Halep, whose action has also served as an example.
