Getting the needle: Blake would say no to Tokyo rather than take the jab
Sprinter Yohan Blake says he would rather miss Olympics than get Covid-19 vaccine, though it is not compulsory
Olympic champion sprinter Yohan Blake of Jamaica said he would rather miss the Tokyo Games than get the Covid-19 vaccine, though getting vaccinated will not be required of the athletes competing there this summer.
“My mind still stays strong, I don’t want any vaccine. I’d rather miss the Olympics than take the vaccine. I am not taking it,” he was quoted as saying in Jamaican newspaper The Gleaner.
“I don’t really want to get into it now, but I have my reasons.”..
