As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport earlier today, Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito asked the president of the Veneto region Luca Zaia if it was possible to vaccinate his squad during their training camp in Auronzo di Cadore, which was approved by the politician.

Considering the outbreak of Covid-19 in the Spezia squad recently due to the anti-vax players, the Biancocelesti management need to address this issue as soon as possible, wanting to avoid any possible outbreaks during next season’s campaign.

This situation could also have negative effects in the dressing room and may distract the players from their work with coach Maurizio Sarri, and so Lazio’s management are working to resolve the case as soon as possible.
