In remarks to the media this week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers expressed support for his teammates’ decisions on vaccinations. Yes, even the guys not vaccinated.
“Yeah, I’ve been immunized,” he said Thursday following a Green Bay Packers practice.
Rodgers added that he believes COVID-19 in the NFL is an “interesting issue” due to the polarity surrounding the stances for or against the vaccine.
“There’s guys that have been vaccinated that have contracted COVID, so it’s an interesting issue that I think we’re going to see played out the entire season, There’s a lot of conversation around it, around the league, and a lot of guys who have made statements and not made statements, owners who have made statements. There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to judge those guys.”
Many players speaking out against the NFL’s policies feel they are wrong, like Cole Beasley, but Rodgers supports his teammates. Right now that is a brave thing to say.
The world does not want you to have a different opinion of the vaccine. I mean they feel if you are not vaccinated you are the Devil. I wish more people had the feelings of Rodgers because right now our country is divided over a shot.
