The league announced that sixty eight percent of Premier League players have had two doses of Covid-19 vaccine.

Premier League confirmed that 81% have had at least one jab.

These numbers indicate a significant increase in vaccine uptake.

Only seven Premier League clubs had more than half of their players fully vaccinated at the end of September.

The league stated that the Premier League collects vaccination rates on a weekly basis. It continues to work with clubs in order to encourage vaccination among club staff and players.

Callum Robinson, Republic of Ireland's international student, revealed earlier this month that he chose not to get vaccinated against Covid-19 despite having twice contracted the virus.

Robinson spoke days after Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool boss, expressed frustration at Premier League players not having the vaccine.

Klopp stated that "99%" his players had been vaccinated, and that he didn't have to convince them. He also said that he was being jabbed to protect himself as well as "all the people around him".

The BBC has learned that 49% of English Football League players had been fully vaccinated as of September, up from 18% in the previous month.

Premier League managers, such as Klopp, Pep Guardianiola, Mikel Arteta and Nuno Espirito Sante, have called upon their players to immunize themselves, including Graham Potter, Graham Potter, Steve Bruce, Graham Potter, Graham Potter, and Nuno Espirito Santato.

Gareth Southgate, England manager, stated that younger people in the UK are more open to conspiracy theories because they are older.

"They are more likely to be exposed to these views by reading social media," says one.

"From what I can see, there is some confusion around."
