Patrick Fischer (46) does not have a vaccine in his body. not even one. No flu shot, nothing. This will change now. Although Nati’s coach says: “I’m not anti-vaccination, I’m not a vaccine skeptic, but I’m also not a supporter of vaccinations. I’ve always had a lot of confidence in my body.”
If he wants to travel to Beijing for the Olympic Games in February, his personal philosophy is irrelevant. The Chinese are very practical: If you’re not vaccinated, you won’t get in. “I love my job and would never do anything that would jeopardize this job,” Fischer says. “So I’m going to get vaccinated.”
First shot before Germany Cup
The runner-up world champion trainer from 2018 (amazing day in Copenhagen, mind you) will now have his first vaccination ahead of the Germany Cup in early November. And not only with regards to the Olympics: as a national team coach, he is also part of the expanded coaching staff at the U20 World Cup, and with it his trip to Canada (games begin on 26 December in Edmonton and Red Deer), Alberta) as well as subsequent planned NHL travel to go without disturbance, must present a vaccination certificate upon entry.
Fisher does not make the issue of vaccination a political issue. In his biography (Game Time), the natives of Zug provide detailed information about their relationship with nature and spirituality, without falling into missionary tendencies. The national coach also manages this balancing act when answering the vaccination question.
