Barcelona's star, Lionel Messi helps fund 50,000 Covid vaccines for South American players

Share This

Lionel Messi has helped secure 50,000 doses of a Covid vaccine for Conmebol as part of a bold campaign to inoculate South American players ahead of this summer's Copa America.

A deal was reached with Chinese pharmaceutical company Sinovac after Messi donated three signed Barcelona shirts, with the deal brokered by Uruguay president Luis Lacalle Pou, according to The Guardian.

Conmebol official Gonzalo Belloso revealed the deal on Twitter while posting pictures Messi's signed shirts.


Belloso tweeted: 'Sinovac's directors manifested their admiration for Lionel Messi, who kindly sent us three shirts for them.'

The South American football confederation, Conmebol, are planning to vaccinate as many players from the continent for this summer's showpiece, which is being held in Colombia and Argentina.

Some of the 50,000 vaccines will be going to Argentina's first division male sides.

'The idea is to vaccinate all of Argentina's first division teams,' said Bellos. 'We want all football players to be inoculated before the Copa América because any of them could be called to play.'
