Jamal Musiala prefers vaccination

According to the report, the only 18-year-old Musiala had already thought about the vaccination in late summer when the Stiko extended its vaccination recommendation to the age group of twelve to 17-year-olds. The problem: The season was already in full swing, a vaccination during the game would have meant a break.

Meyer and his doctor colleagues are said to have recently issued a joint letter of recommendation from the DFL and DFB to the Bundesliga players who are still undecided or have not been completely vaccinated. The explosive content: Please reconsider your individual vaccination decision during the winter break. This amounted to a clear recommendation to do so during this period. In the letter, Meyer and colleagues clearly advised against vaccination in high-performance phases before the winter break.

The second prick should then take place during the winter break, so Musiala would be fully vaccinated for the start of the second half of the season on January 7th.

FCB-Trainer Julian Nagelsmann was happy about the allegedly willing to vaccinate players. “It would be a first step”, said the 34-year-old after the game in Kiev. “A very good one for Serge, because he has already recovered and therefore received full vaccination protection earlier. It would take a while with Jamal, but you have to take the first step before the second. ” Gnabry is considered recovered after a corona infection in spring and therefore, unlike Musiala, only needs an injection. Now it would be Kimmich, Cuisance and Choupo-Moting next. (ck)
