The International Olympic Committee says it plans to vaccinate every athlete set to participate in the summer games scheduled to be held in Tokyo.

The IOC is working in conjunction with the World Health Organization to help arrange for vaccines for more than 11,000 athletes in countries that have not yet begun to vaccinate against the coronavirus, according to a Reuters report.

Japanese officials said last week that they plan to host the games starting in July, and have set what many believe is an ambitious task to vaccinate all of its 127 million citizens before then. Government officials have said they want to start the COVID-19 vaccinations next month.

The games, which were to have been held in 2020, were postponed because of the pandemic.
