Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open as unvaccinated: “I have an exemption”

Novak Djokovic will be present at Australian Open after obtaining a medical exemption from the Victoria state government. It was the same number one in the world who broke the news through his own Instagram personal account where he posted a photo of the airport where he will then head to Melbourne to prepare for the Australian Open, trying to win his tenth success at Melbourne Park.

The Serbian tennis player wrote: «Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all health, love and happiness that is in every present moment and that you can feel love and respect for one another on this beautiful planet. I had a great time with loved ones during the break and will now be heading to Melbourne with an exemption. Happy 2022! ».

Australia: “Djokovic medical exemption after careful examination”

“Djokovic requested a medical exemption which was granted following a rigorous review process involving two independent groups of medical experts.” Tennis Australia tries to explain, through a note, the reasons for which a medical exemption has been granted to Nole Djokovic which will allow him to participate in the Australian Open.

“The vaccination protocols against Covid-19 for the Australian Open, including the procedure for players requesting medical exemption, have been finalized by the Victorian Department of Health and Tennis Australia – continues the note -. The medical exemption requests were reviewed by a panel of experts made up of doctors from the fields of immunology, infectious diseases and general medicine. Applications that met national guidelines established by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) were then subjected to a second review conducted by a government-appointed group of medical experts, the Independent Medical Exemption Review Panel.

The note concludes by emphasizing the need to ensure privacy and highlighting how “the independent, multi-stage review process was designed to ensure the safety of all at the Australian Open.”
