On Tuesday, U.S. Olympics authorities unveiled a coronavirus vaccine mandate for all American participants at the coming 2022 Beijing Winter Games.
US Olympic & Paralympic Committee said that all athletes, staffers, and contractors would be required to be fully vaccinated by November 1 to qualify to attend the games. The USOPC added that “all Team USA delegation members or hopefuls for future Games” must be fully vaccinated by Dec.1.
“The health and well-being of our Olympic and Paralympic community continues to be a top priority,” the committee said in a statement according to the New York Post. “This step will increase our ability to create a safe and productive environment for Team USA athletes and staff and allow us to restore consistency in planning, preparation, and optimal service to athletes.”
The committee also noted that exemptions would also be allowed for medical and religious objectors. However, those granted exemptions will undergo daily testing during the games and follow other strict protocols.
CEO Sarah Hirshland insisted that the pandemic “is far from over” and claimed that the new requirements are the only way to assure safety.
“This step will increase our ability to create a safe and productive environment for Team USA athletes and staff and allow us to restore consistency in planning, preparation, and service to athletes,” Hirshland wrote.
This is the first time the USOPC has mandated complete vaccinations for participants. About 83 percent of participants for the Summer Games in Tokyo were vaccinated.

Corruption runs deep and wide in this country.
I’m trying out for the Snow Angel Team.
How many healthy, top-of-their-game athletes will die from this, I wonder?
I’m going for yellow snow calligraphy.
More than zero is too many.
I remember freedom…

And what makes you qualified to make such a statement,sweetie?
The healthiest, fittest people on earth have zero risk. This is so stupid.
F8ck the Olympics, they just committed suicide.
The luge, skeleton, and bobsled atheltes are more likely to die during a run down the track then from this virus.
The Olympic Committee is sabotaging their own show in order to break standing contracts. They took such a hit in Tokyo that they can’t afford to do it again.
What in the hell is wrong with these people. The so called Vaccines are NOT working.
“The so called Vaccines are NOT working.”
That depends on what you consider “working” to be.
You still catch Covid. Still spread Covid, Still die from Covid with or without the jab. Heck, more and more reports surfacing fully vaccinated people dying. Read today a couple, fully vaxxed died minutes apart. Another died of Covid even after his 3rd jab.
Sounds like it’s workin to me. lol
