The NBA already has 90% of contract players on league teams fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to a report from The Athletic.

The number of athletes on both doses of the vaccine has increased rapidly in recent weeks. By the beginning of September, the vaccination rate was at 80%.

Although the request to get vaccinated is not mandatory to participate in the season, the league’s board does ask everyone who must work closely with the players to be vaccinated and set an October 1 deadline.

This year’s NBA regular season will begin on October 19.
