Simona Halep gets vaccinated: “I am safer, but I will still be extremely careful”

WTA ranking’s number three Simona Halep got vaccinated with the Pfizer serum on Wednesday at the Cantacuzino National Institute of Research in Bucharest. The Romanian first racket took the vaccine a week from the moment she arrived back home from her Australian Open adventure, where she was stopped in the quarter-finals by Serena Williams.

After taking the vaccine, Halep talked about how she feels. “There were emotions, but I came with an open mind and I’m fine now. I got the Pfizer vaccine. I believe that this vaccine is for the good of all and that is why I decided to make it,” said Halep.

She continued with a word of encouragement for other people to get the anti-COVID-19 shot. “I hope more and more people get vaccinated. I also have to do the rappelling, this reassures me, I am safer after this vaccine. But I will still be extremely careful. If it’s the only way to get rid of the pandemic, it’s good to get the vaccine. “
