West Ham boardroom offered vaccines during Man United game

Guests in the West Ham boardroom were offered flu jabs during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United at the London Stadium, per John Cross.

The Daily Mirror journalist wrote that a medic from the Hammers was on hand to deliver a jab to those who wanted it as the club aims to do to their bit on and off the pitch.

Via his personal Twitter account, Cross wrote, “You’ll never guess what was on offer in the West Ham boardroom last Sunday.”

Setting the right precedent

There was a huge Covid-19 spike last winter and the club are well aware of the ramifications that come with it.

They’re doing their bit to ensure that it does not happen again and it’s good to see them reaching out their services to the opposition teams as well.

Cross reports that even the Manchester United executives were offered a vaccine jab. The chance of requiring Covid certifications to enter stadiums is a possibility should the case rises in the coming weeks.

Only seven days notice will be given to clubs to prepare their systems and only the fully vaccinated in through the turnstiles.

It would also have a significant impact on the players are there are is a rage proportion of them who are yet to take the vaccination.

Should the rule be enforced, they will not be allowed to play, which could have dire repercussions in the future.

It remains to be seen how this pans out, but seeing West Ham take the right steps would only mean that the messaging would be the same for the players as well.
