Chelsea star Mason Mount gets coronavirus vaccination to ensure no repeat of his England Euros isolation nightmare

MASON MOUNT has been vaccinated to avoid a repeat of his Euros nightmare.

The England star was forced to quarantine for ten days during the tournament.

Mount missed the Euro 2020 game against Czech Republic after Billy Gilmour tested positive

He was deemed a close contact of Scotland’s Billy Gilmour who contracted Covid.

Mount missed the final group game against the Czechs, as did Chelsea pal Ben Chilwell who was also dumped into a room on his own.

But now the midfielder has been double jabbed, that would not be the case.

Mount, 22, said: “Going through that experience, missing the game — a top, top game — did have an effect on my decision.

“I don’t think you can force anyone to get it.

“But, for me, going through that did make me want to get it — and get it quite quickly.”



Mount is set to face Hungary in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley tonight.

And Chelsea’s Champions League winner is on a high after being named on the Ballon d’Or shortlist.

He said: “The nomination is such a special thing.

“To be in the top 30 in the world at the moment is a dream come true.”

Lionel Messi is the favourite to win and asked if he fancies his chances, Mount added: “Umm . . . I doubt it but you never know!”
