Suara.com – Plt. PSSI Secretary General, Yunus Nusi, admitted that his party had written to the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) regarding the COVID-19 vaccination. PSSI wants footballers to get vaccine rations.
As is known, athletes, especially football, are not a priority in the list of vaccine recipients. Health Workers (Nakes) are the first priority.
This COVID-19 vaccination has been started since Wednesday (13/1/2021). President Joko Widodo is the first recipient of the vaccine. Later, all Indonesians will take turns getting the same share.
Previously, the Ministry of Youth and Sports (Kemenpora) had also submitted a similar matter to the Ministry of Health. Kemenpora wants athletes to get priority, especially those who will soon join the championship.

Yunus Nusi explained what PSSI asked for all football players. Starting from the national team of all levels, to the parties involved in the competition such as players, coaches, officials, and committee members in League 1 and 2.
If you look at the PSSI request, of course there will be a lot of vaccines issued. For example, one team alone contains 30 people. While Liga 1 contains 18 clubs, not including the strata below.
Not to mention at the national team level, where in 2021 a series of agendas await. Such as the U-16 and U-16 Asian Cups, U-23 Asian Cup Qualifications, 2021 SEA Games, and 2022 Asian zone World Cup Qualifiers for senior national teams.
Therefore, PSSI feels the need for footballers to get a vaccine. Especially for those who will soon be competing at the international level.
“PSSI has submitted a letter to the Ministry of Health and a copy to Kemenpora asking for priority vaccines,” said Yunus Nusi when contacted by the media crew, Thursday (14/1/2021).

“We propose a vaccine for all. The national team of all strata, players, coaches, match officials, League 1 and League 2 teams,” added the man who is also a member of the PSSI Executive Committee (Exco).
Vaccinations are urgently needed for those involved in football given the chance that competitions will be held, either continuing or starting with a new season.
