Callum Robinson has revealed that he has chosen not to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
The Ireland international was asked on Tuesday about Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's assertion that people have a duty to other to get vaccinated.
"It’s your choice," said Robinson.
"I wouldn't be saying that everyone should be vaccinated or you shouldn't get vaccinated. I think it's your personal choice, if you want to get vaccinated, then go do it, but if you don't want to...
"I can’t tell anyone to get it and I can’t tell people not to.”
Asked about his own personal decision, the West Brom forward said: "I haven’t been vaccinated, no. That’s my choice at this moment in time."
🗣"Everyone has that choice."

Robinson has twice contracted Covid-19, and missed seven Ireland international games due to the virus.
"As I said, it’s obviously annoying that I’ve caught [Covid-19] twice but I haven’t been vaccinated," he said.
"Further down the line I could change my mind and want to do it but at this moment in time I haven’t been vaccinated, no.
"I just haven’t done it. It’s your personal choice and my choice at this moment in time, I haven’t been vaccinated. I know, as you said, there are managers and people that will want you to do it, which is right in their way of what they think, but everyone has their choice and what they want to do. I wouldn’t force people to do it, it’s your choice and your body.
"I definitely lost caps because of the coronavirus, which is obviously so annoying that the virus can take caps away from you."
