Thomas Tuchel has encouraged football fans not yet vaccinated to get the jab to help save lives and protect others.
Tuchel, who was joined at the Bridge by chairman Bruce Buck, told the club's official website: "I got my second vaccination today so it's a big step – for travelling, for being safe and for feeling more safe so it's the right thing to do."

Chelsea are one of a number of Premier League clubs to open up their stadium as walk-in centres to support NHS efforts to get the public vaccinated against COVID-19.
Tuchel says the support given by clubs in reaching out and offering people an easy way to get vaccinated is important, especially with the 2021/22 season start just three weeks away.
"It's good," he added. "We are here in the middle of the city so it's a good thing to use the stadium for society.
"We're happy to come back soon [to Stamford Bridge] and play here in front of our spectators hopefully.
"If this is possible, it would be the first time that it's a full stadium. We had a great experience against Leicester and we could feel what difference it will make to our sport and to the game.
"We can't wait to experience it again."
Those sentiments were echoed by Greg Hands, MP for Chelsea and Fulham, who said: "People are thinking about football more so, actually, the game giving back to communities is a really important part of this message.
"Football also has this ability to connect with groups that sometimes have vaccine hesitancy like younger people, or some minority groups, so it can be a really good medium for reaching people to get vaccinated."
If you are aged 18 or over you do not need to wait to be invited for a vaccine, you can book online at a time and location that works for you.
