The decision to vaccinate players and support staff comes as a boost after recent cases in the NBL that saw Power Vs Nam Blazers postponed from Sunday last week.

Power players received their jabs earlier this week.

Not vaccinated players will have to present their negative Covid19 tests certificates 48 hours before the game day.

The move sees FUBA continue to adhere to set Government SOPs on Covid19 as fears of a second wave and imminent lockdown rises.
