Novak Djokovic’s anti-vaccination stance has been reinforced by American cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, who is concerned that the COVID-19 vaccines may affect the heart. Because he has not received the COVID-19 vaccine, Novak Djokovic, 35, could miss the US Open.
Proof of vaccination is required for foreigners entering the United States in conformity with current vaccine regulations. Sportskeeda cites Dr. McCullough as saying, “The COVID-19 vaccines, all of them, in the medical literature, there are over 200 papers, they all cause heart damage and that is the last thing that an athlete can possibly risk,” citing over 200 studies in the medical literature.
“Damage to the heart can lead to cardiac failure or even death, depending on the severity of the problem. His choice is correct, and the vaccine’s effects extend beyond cardiac injury. The spinal muscle, nerves, brain, and other critical elements of a great tennis player can be damaged when a COVID-19 vaccine is administered.”
McCullough agrees with Djokovic’s vaccination stance.
“They should be held to the same standards as the general public. A study produced by NCAA athletes focused on the testing that was done on a regular basis. Athletes had a lower prevalence of COVID-19 than the general student population “In Dr. McCullough’s defense, he added.
Djokovic is taking a break after winning Wimbledon. If Djokovic does not play in the US Open, the Cincinnati and Montreal Masters tournaments, he may not return until September.
After winning Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic announced that he would not be receiving the shot until after the US Open. Furthermore, Djokovic has emphasized that he has no intention of using force to gain entry into the United States. Djokovic did not relish the Australian saga because he refused to travel to the United States without prior authorisation.
