Large number of Shrimps squad receive Covid booster

21 December 2021

Members of Morecambe's first-team squad received their Covid-19 booster jabs on Tuesday.

Bay Medical Group staff members were on hand to provide the players with their Covid-19 booster vaccines at the Mazuma Stadium, which is also a vaccination centre for the public.

Manager Stephen Robinson said: "We've got 100% fully vaccinated and now we've probably got about 80% of the squad have had their booster jab as well.

"[It's] really, really good, first and foremost, for everybody's health, protecting everybody, and secondly for the logistics of the football side of things, where we change and where we eat together.

"[I'm] delighted to see that uptake today, and hopefully everybody can stay safe and healthy.

"You can't force anybody to have the vaccine, it's everyone's personal choice, but it's certainly something I would advocate.

"We believe in the medical side of things, and we believe the advice we're being given is to keep us all safe, and also to try and keep football going.

"We know how much it hurt last year when we stopped, so the more people that've got vaccinated, the more chance we have of that."
