The Minister of Education and Culture, Jose Manuel Rodriguez Uribes, justified that ‘Express’ vaccination of the Spanish football team after the positive of Sergio Busquets and before the proximity of Eurocopa. Uribes has insured in Cadena Ser’s Hoy por hoy program ngels Barceló that the vaccination of internationals is an exception.
“We don’t vaccinate footballers, we vaccinate the Spanish team. You raised the issue with me, I discussed it with the Minister, and it has been done in our day and age. It is an exception. We vaccinate according to age groups. And if we make exceptions, it has to be justified. It happens in times that touch. It’s an exception because they represent us. We’re vaccinating the football team’s players because they’ll represent us in a top competition next week. “
“We’re doing the same thing we did last week with the athletes who are going to the Tokyo Games“.
“I think the country understands that it has to go with the maximum guarantees. It has nothing to do with skipping. It is the exception to the general rule. The minister told me to put it in writing to the Public Health Commission which is meeting this afternoon. “
“The request is by Friday and goes before the positive Busquets, which is June 7th. We did it with the intention of vaccinating this week and now they have to decide which vaccine to give. “
“Luis Rubiales – President of the Royal Spanish Football Association – was very interested. We acted consistently and with the appropriate criteria. “
