Pfizer strikes deal with IOC to jab Thai Olympic athletes

FRIDAY, May 07, 2021

Covid-19 vaccine producer Pfizer-BioNTech has signed a memorandum of understanding with International Olympic Committee (IOC) to provide jabs for Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

IOC’s Patama Leeswadtrakul said the MoU was signed on Thursday and the first set of doses will be delivered at the end of this month.

She added the vaccines will be allocated in line with the demand in each country. Also, there are no regulations making it mandatory for athletes to be inoculated before joining the Tokyo Olympics.

The Olympics is scheduled to run from July 23 to August 8, while the Paralympics will be held from August 24 to September 5.
