Tour champion Pogacar and UAE Team Emirates first team to get Covid-19 vaccine
Among those vaccinated was Colombian Fernando Gaviria, who last October became one of the rare patients to have had the disease twice
Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar and his UAE Team Emirates teammates have been vaccinated against Covid-19 at a training camp in Abu Dhabi, the team said on Friday.
“The riders and staff of the Tour de France 2020 winning team UAE Team Emirates have taken the UAE Ministry of Health & Prevention approved Covid-19 vaccine developed by Sinopharm CNBG,” UAE Team Emirates said in a statement.
“A total of 27 riders, including the Tour de France 2020 winner Slovenian cyclist Tadej Pogacar, plus 32 staff have now received the vaccine.”
They are the first professional cycling team to be vaccinated.
Among those vaccinated was Colombian Fernando Gaviria, who last October became one of the rare patients to have had the disease twice.
The pandemic forced the 2020 cycling season to shut down for four-and-a-half months before resuming in August, with Pogacar ending up winning the Tour in September.
