Aaron Rodgers Responds To Controversy Over Immunization Comment

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has openly come up with things to clarify, in the middle of controversy regarding his vaccination status following him being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week.

Rodgers explained appearing on The Pat McAfee Show that he “didn’t lie” at the time of the offseason when he told the reporters about his immunization.

Rodgers said, “I’d been ready the entire time for this question and had thought about how I wanted to answer it. And I had come to the conclusion, I’m gonna say, ‘I’ve been immunized.’ And if there’s a follow-up, then talk about my process.”

“But, thought there’s a possibility that I say, ‘I’m immunized,’ maybe they understand what that means, maybe they don’t. Maybe they follow up. They didn’t follow up. So then I go [into] the season them thinking, some of them, that I was vaccinated,” added Rodgers.

Though Rodgers was actually referring to the homeopathic medicine that he had consumed as a form of immunization, he also mentioned that he had received a vaccination during news conference by speaking without a mask, which was only permitted for vaccinated players.

In fact, the story went viral when Rodgers subsequently tested positive with COVID. “I knew at some point if I contracted COVID or if word got out, because it’s the NFL and there’s leaks everywhere, it was possible I’d have to answer the questions,” elaborated Rodgers.

Previously, Rodgers proclaimed in the program that he is allergic to polyethylene glycol (PEG), and for that reason, he was advised to not receive the mRNA immunizations as advised by the Centers for Disease Control.

The first time when Rodgers revealed that he could not take the mRNA Covid vaccines last season following a positive Covid test that rendered him unavailable against the Kansas City Chiefs, several people had assumed that the element to which he was allergic was PEG.

Allen Lazard, another Packers star who went unvaccinated in 2021, also received a fine from the NFL for violating the league’s Covid rule by going to a Halloween party, for which Rodgers contracted the virus.
