The league said vaccination rates are collected on a weekly basis and that it continues to “work with clubs to encourage vaccination among players and club staff.”
Currently, 85.9% of the UK population aged 12 and over has received at least one dose and 78.9% has received two doses.
On Monday, the Premier League announced that it had recorded six new positive tests for Covid-19 out of 3,044 tests carried out on players and club staff between Monday, October 11 and Sunday, October 17.
Earlier this month, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told reporters that “99%” of his squad had been vaccinated and expressed frustration at the apparent slow uptake at rival teams, saying that refusing to take the vaccine “is a little bit like drink-driving.”
In August, England manager Gareth Southgate said he had received abuse for appearing in a video encouraging young people to get vaccinated.
“We are considering if and how best we can ‘reward’ those squads/players who are most Covid-compliant and who have opted to be vaccinated,” the letter reportedly said.
