Aaron Rodgers has broken his silence on his vaccination status.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback is out Sunday against the Chiefs after testing positive for coronavirus, and it was also revealed that he’s unvaccinated, despite claiming he was “immunized.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
During a Friday interview with Pat McAfee, Rodgers said he’s in “the crosshairs of the woke mob” and people looking to put the “final nail” in his “cancel culture casket.”
He also called out the “witch hunt” that unfolded in the NFL to find out who was vaccinated and who wasn’t.

Furthermore, he explained he’s allergic to an ingredient in the mRNA vaccines, which are the Moderna and Pfizer options. He’s also listening to Joe Rogan’s advice and taking Ivermectin.

Honestly, good for Aaron Rodgers, and I say that as someone who is vaccinated and believes in the vaccine. Rodgers doesn’t owe anyone answers, and he damn sure doesn’t owe reporters answers on his vaccination status.
While the outrage machine is spinning up, he laid it all out for McAfee and his fans as to why he did what he did.
The media is flipping out because Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated.

Now, do I think it was still shady as all hell he said he was “immunized” in what appeared to be a word game? Sure, but he doesn’t have to explain anything to me.
Rodgers: “Yeah, I’ve been immunized”

Now, will the NFL look kindly on what Rodgers did? I have no idea, but that’s his issue to figure out. As far as I’m concerned, he doesn’t owe me or anyone else answers as to why he’s chosen to be unvaccinated.
