The US Olympic and Paralympic Committee says about 100 of the 613 US athletes descending on Tokyo for the Olympics are unvaccinated.
Medical director Jonathan Finnoff says 567 of the American athletes had filled out their health histories as they prepared for the trip. He estimated 83% had replied they were vaccinated.
Finnoff says 83 percent is a substantial number and the committee is quite happy with it.
Nationally, 56.3% of Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
The International Olympic Committee estimates that around 85% of residents of the Olympic Village are vaccinated. That’s based that on what each country’s Olympic committee reports but is not an independently verified number.
