The quarterback had questioned vaccines on a Friday interview
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been let go of a nine-year partnership with Prevea Health, a Wisconsin health care organization. This comes after Rodgers spoke about avoiding the three COVID-19 vaccinations that the NFL endorsed for all its players, and also spoke against the “woke mob” that is trying to cancel him.
Prevea Health’s statement
Prevea Health released a public statement via Twitter, where they explained that they will continue to remain deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. They will also continue to urge the eligible citizens to get vaccinated and prevent more people from getting infected.
They have also ended their partnership with Rodgers, which began in 2012. It was a mutual termination, and came to effect on Saturday.
How it began?
It began when Rodgers told SiriusXM’s Pat McAfee Show that he was allergic to an ingredient in the COVID-19 vaccination that the FDA approved. Rodgers didn’t explain what he was allergic to, and even strongly questioned the NFL’s COVID protocols, as well as other organizations that force health requirements on the people.
Rodgers had contacted the virus on Wednesday, and can’t join his team for practice and will have to miss Sunday’s game at Kansas City.
Rodgers believes that one should not follow something because a large group supports it. But the vaccine that the majority of the US received was first tested in tens of thousands of people. It really did reduce the risk of serious disease and death. And that is the purpose of vaccines. Diseases can come and go, but can you make sure it doesn’t leave you permanently damaged or worse, dead?
