Vanuatu’s Olympic beach volleyball hopefuls have registered to get the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, to keep alive their hopes of making it to Tokyo.
Vanuatu will compete in the Asian Continental Cup final in Thailand next month, with the winner to qualify for the women’s main draw in Japan.
Vanuatu Beach Volleyball President Debbie Masauvakalo said the women have to be vaccinated if they want to take part in the Olympics.
“Because we are preparing to qualify for the Tokyo Olympic Games and we have to travel out early next month to Bangkok, so it’s very important that we come here today and we register and that we get the Covid vaccine so that we can remain safe.”
