No Skipping


NBA to Prohibit Teams from Skipping the Line for the COVID-19 Vaccine

There will be no skipping!

As the COVID-19 vaccine begins to get distributed across North America, the NBA has issued a statement warning its teams against skipping the line in order to vaccinate its players and coaches. It’s all about the waiting game as the league confirmed that it will remain¬†“consistent with the timing and prioritization set by applicable public health guidelines.”

Something the NHL can learn from theses statements no doubt.

According to government policy as it pertains to the vaccine, front-line workers and the elderly will receive the vaccine first. The NBA will allow team physicians and health-related personnel, as well as older staff members to receive the vaccine early on, while the players will be required to wait their turn.

In the first week of the NBA season, the league has already been forced to postpone a game due to a potential coronavirus scare. The Houston Rockets are slated to get back to the court on Saturday as they have nine players available for their matchup against the Portland Trailblazers.

The league remains hopeful that its players will be able to receive the vaccine at some point during the season.
