Novak Djokovic Willing To Miss Tennis Tournaments Over COVID-19 Vaccine

The world’s number one men’s tennis player and a 20-time Grand Slam tournament winner, Novak Djokovic is the most prominent global sports star so far to publicly state his opposition to being vaccinated against COVID-19. Accepting that refusing vaccination may prevent him being able to travel to tournaments in future, he says he is willing to forego the chance to become statistically the greatest male tennis player of all time. Explaining his decision, Djokovic described how the principles of decision making regarding what he puts in his body are more important to him than any tennis title.

Given that they were hastily approved through the use of so-called ‘emergency use authorization’ mechanisms, the fact is that no long-term safety data exists for Covid vaccines. In contrast to traditional vaccines, which generally take around 10 years to develop, including safety testing and regulatory approval, Covid vaccines were rushed to market in a matter of months. In this situation, especially given their use of mRNA and other new approaches to vaccine delivery, it is impossible to know what the long-term side effects might be.

This should not be taken as suggesting that our organization completely opposes all forms of vaccines, however. We recognize that vaccines based on peptides, short chains of the naturally occurring amino acids found in food, have potential in the prevention and control of diseases such as cancer, for example. Scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California have already published pioneering work in this area.

But patients have a right to expect that the preventive health therapies they use are safe and properly researched. Putting the financial interests of vaccine manufacturers and their stakeholders before public safety does nothing to achieve this.
