American athletes and support staff taking part in the February 4-20 Beijing Winter Olympics must be vaccinated against Covid-19 before November, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee has ruled.

And by December 1 the mandate will be extended to include all Team USA delegations members or hopefuls for future Olympics.

At the Tokyo Olympics, the committee stopped short of mandating Covid-19 vaccinations for all delegation members, so around 100 athletes went without being vaccinated.
