Minister promises jabs for all boxing personnel soon
After meeting with boxing professionals on Monday, Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn announced that all staff in the boxing industry will get their Covid-19 jabs soon.
He said a vaccine station will be set up at the Sports Authority of Thailand.
“Provincial sports authorities have been asked to submit a list of boxing staff members, so the ministry can coordinate with the Public Health Ministry for inoculation,” he said.
He added that boxing tournaments can be held in different provinces, provided there are no spectators. However, he said, the final decision is with provincial authorities.
“Boxing tournaments without spectators will be held in Bangkok from August onwards because the situation in the capital is severe at present. The government aims to vaccinate most people by July,” he said.
