Tennis star Novak Djokovic said Sunday that he’s personally opposed to vaccinations, and thus worries that a novel coronavirus vaccination will become mandatory for tennis players.
“Personally, I am opposed to vaccination, and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel,” Djokovic said during a livestream on Facebook, according to ESPN.
“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen?” he questioned. “I will have to make a decision.”
“I have my own thoughts about the matter, and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know,” the 32-year-old continued.
“Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine, and there is no vaccine yet,” Djokovic added.
