The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced distributing SARS Coronavirus vaccines among its all officials and the participants of the HBL PSL 6.
As the COVID struck PSL 6 camp with a few of the players testing positive, the board did not want any alerted situation. Hence, they have come up with the safest initiative.
Notably, it will be up to the player and the official either to get vaccines shot or not. The vaccines are to be distributed on Thursday.
Taking the initiative, PCB becomes the first-ever cricket board to distribute COVID vaccines among officials and players. The idea is granted so there does not come any alarming state to hit the PSL flow going on.
Notably, the PSL 2020 was called off in the middle due to the outbreak. The playoffs and final were scheduled by the year-end.
PCB offers treasure to the players, officials
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan:
“The PCB takes the health, safety, and wellbeing of its players and officials very seriously. In line with our duty of care policy, we have acquired a small allocation of SARS-Coronavirus Vaccine, which will be offered to all those inside the bio-secure environment created for the HBL Pakistan Super League 6.Advertisement
“The players and officials will be under no obligation to have the vaccine. The vaccinations will be administered on Thursday morning by qualified health workers, strictly in line with government protocols.
“While we live in these challenging times, the vaccine has been sourced to provide an added level of protection and comfort for players and all personnel inside the bubble. We will continue to operate responsibly in our duty to those involved in the tournament.”
