QOC completes vaccination program for international atheletes ahead of Tokyo 2020 Olympics

DOHA-The Qatar Olympic Committee has completed its vaccination program for athletes who were unable to be vaccinated in their home countries in advance of travelling to Japan for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

After a group of countries joined this great initiative, the QOC agreed jointly with the IOC, Pfizer-BioNTech and Qatar Airways to provide vaccinations

To this end, last week, the QOC completed all vaccine doses for participants of the countries who joined the initiative. Participants arrived at Hamad International Airport and stayed at Doha’s training camp. The QOC provided all necessary measures required for the athletes and delegations in cooperation with Qatar’s Ministry of Interior, Ministry of  Public Health and Hamad International Airport.

The QOC is proud to cooperate with the IOC in pushing the Olympic Movement forward amid this COVID-19 and supporting the Tokyo 2020 organizers  to host a safe and successful Games.
