The vaccination status of NFL football player Aaron Rodgers was revealed over the weekend and it turns out that the Green Bay Packers quarterback is not vaccinated for COVID-19. Rodgers tested positive for COVID last week and wasn’t able to play on Sunday in Green Bay’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. When asked about his status months ago, Rodgers chose his words carefully and said that he had been “immunized,” referring to either previously contracting the virus or taking prophylactic treatments. Rodgers went on The Pat McAffee Show last week and said, “I consulted with a now good friend of mine Joe Rogan after he got COVID and I’ve been doing a lot of the stuff he recommended in his podcasts . . . and I’m going to have the best immunity possible now.” Rodgers also said that he sent 500 pages of research about COVID immunity to the NFL. Sadly, being a quarterback at the top of his game, Rodgers is someone who is seen as a role model by American society and some of his fans are going to listen to his advice on topics even outside of football. In this case, that advice could prevent people from getting vaccinated, putting them at risk of potentially getting hospitalized or even dying of COVID-19.
