JAKARTA - The management of the Indonesian Badminton Association (PP PBSI) confirmed that all athletes, coaches and the Cipayung National Pelatnas support team were in good condition after being injected with the first phase of the vaccine at Istora Senayan, Friday.

Head of Development and Achievement of PBSI, Rionny Mainaky, in a written statement on Friday, said that all 82 people who have been injected with the vaccine will return to the second phase of vaccination on March 12.

"Thanks to the government, we finally got vaccines for athletes who will go to the Swiss Open and All England. Hopefully there will be no side effects for them. As many as 82 people who were vaccinated today are also in good condition," Rionny said as quoted by Antara.

Melati Daeva Oktavianti said that when she was vaccinated it felt like when she was injected with ordinary drugs.

"It feels like being bitten by an ant. Yes, like an ordinary injection," said Melati.

"My hope is that the COVID-19 pandemic will quickly disappear, so that we can return to our normal activities. After being vaccinated, we will feel calmer, but we still have to maintain health protocols," he added.

Similar hopes were conveyed by athletes in the men's doubles sector, Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto. Both also have hopes that this pandemic will end quickly.

"Hopefully everyone is immune to COVID, no one is exposed again and I hope this pandemic will end quickly," said Fajar.

"The hope is that life can return to normal, there is no need to use vaccines anymore. However, we must maintain health for everything. Most importantly, hopefully this corona will end quickly," Rian added.
