During an interview on McAfee’s show Friday, Rodgers confirmed he is unvaccinated against Covid-19 and is disappointed with the treatment he’s been receiving in the media.
Rodgers said the media was on a “魔女狩り” to find out which players were vaccinated and blamed reporters for him saying he was “immunized” back in August. Rodgers said if any reporter would have asked a follow-up question, he would have explained he’s “not an anti-vax flat earther,” but that he’s a “critical thinker.”
Rogers added last week that he has been following the strict NFL protocols for unvaccinated players to a “T.” Rodgers described the testing he is subjected to every day, even on off days, and believes the rules are in place to shame unvaccinated people. Rodgers said he was tested over 300 times before testing positive this week.
He did not get vaccinated because he has an allergy to an ingredient in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and was scared about the possible side effects from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 彼は言った. The decision to seek alternative treatments was “what was best for my body,” 彼は言った.
Rodgers is expected to play this Sunday at home versus the Seattle Seahawks.
