As reported by the Telegraph, on Friday, the International Olympic Committee is in works with the World Health Organization (WHO) to get all athletes, involved in the upcoming Olympics 2021, vaccinated in order to save the Tokyo Games.

Amidst reports of cancellation of the summer games, the IOC boss is confident of fast-tracking the COVID-19 vaccination for the athletes to be participating in the Tokyo games, as stated by the report.

distribution of the vaccines in late February.
