Miami: The President of the Pan American Sports Organization (Panam Sports) is concerned about the health of athletes at the Tokyo Olympics and encourages them to travel to Miami to obtain a COVID-19[female[feminine vaccine.

Olympic athletes from different Latin American countries began getting vaccinated on Monday in Miami as part of an agreement between Panam Sports, the Mexican Consulate and the Marsoni Foundation, which works to prevent migrant illnesses.

Neven Ilic spoke to The Associated Press from his brand new office overlooking Miami’s financial district. The official explained that one of the biggest challenges will be finding athletes who live and train in third countries.

The other, he said, will be the quarantine required by some countries for people returning from international travel, which could mean two weeks without the athlete’s training routine.

However, Ilic hopes that at least 1,000 athletes and members of his delegations will travel to Miami to be vaccinated as part of the program.
