NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers is making headlines after it was discovered that he is not vaccinated against the coronavirus, despite the fact that he had previously suggested that he was.
What Rodgers had actually claimed over the summer was that he was “immunized” against the illness, which gave the impression that he was vaccinated. But, Rodgers never specifically said that he was vaccinated.
How we found out:
Suspicions that Rodgers was not vaccinated came this week after Rodgers tested positive for the coronavirus. That’s because, after he tested positive, Rodgers actually entered the coronavirus protocol for unvaccinated players.
That’s how we came to learn that Rodgers is actually unvaccinated. He now has to quarantine for at least ten days.
It remains to be seen whether the NFL is going to take action against Rodgers considering that he didn’t follow the league’s rules for unvaccinated players over the past several months, including by not wearing facemasks at press conferences.
Rodgers has now become the subject of a lot of criticism for not being more forthcoming about his vaccination status. He has been branded a “liar” by many.
Things got worse for Rodgers when he revealed that he has spoken with podcaster Joe Rogan about treatments that Rogan took when he was diagnosed with the coronavirus. Rogan, another unvaccinated individual, took, among other things, ivermectin, which has been denounced by the left and goes against the left’s coronavirus narrative.
Rodgers, now, is fighting back against the backlash.
Rodgers sets the record straight
On Friday, Rodgers appeared on Pat McAfee’s radio show where he explained his decision not to get vaccinated. According to Rodgers, after researching the vaccines, he came to learn that he was allergic to some of the ingredients. Rodgers also said that his research raised concerns about possible reproductive side effects from the vaccines.
So, instead, Rodgers said that he opted for an “immunization protocol” that involved multiple months of treatment. Rodgers said that the problem, though, was that the NFL refused to accept this approach even despite the more than 500 pages of research that Rodgers provided to the league.
Rodgers also revealed some of the ways that the NFL has tried to sell the vaccine to players, including by telling them that vaccinated individuals do not spread the virus, which Rodgers noted was a lie. Rodgers, in fact, pushed back against many of the left’s coronavirus narratives including that the pandemic is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
Rodgers, addressing the “woke mob” that he believes is now trying to cancel him, concluded, “To just say that [the vaccines are] a blanket for all that ails you, in my opinion, is wrong and reckless.” We’ll have to see if Rodgers is able to survive this incident.
