NFL players tested positive for the coronavirusThis week, earlier will miss the Packers’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.While appearing on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Friday, he claimed he’s being “canceled” and accused the media of conducting a “witch hunt” to find out which players are vaccinated

Back in August, when a reporter asked Rodgers if he was vaccinated, the quarterback cagily responded he was “immunized.” It’s a response that seems deceptive, considering his current status.

“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now,” Rodgers said Friday. “So, before my final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I think I would like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out there about myself.”

Rodgers insisted that he’s “not an anti-vax flat earther” and is a “critical thinker,” but still unleashed a stream of false information in his Friday interview.

“The vaccines do offer some protection for sure, but there is a lot we don’t know about them,” he said before falsely asserting that natural immunity (from a COVID-19 infection) is better than the immunity provided by a vaccine, though evidence shows the contrary.

Also, the quarterback expressed concerns about vaccines making it sterile. although there is no evidence for that, either

Rodgers also stated that he was allergic to a component of Moderna and Pfizer’s mRNA vaccines after researching them. Rodgers stated that the best option was to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccineThe temporary suspension of granting access in April was due to increased risks for recipients developing blood clots. However, it was made available once again following a safety review

Rodgers said he is currently taking treatment advice from comedian Joe Rogan, who also had COVID-19, and is using ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug that so far hasn’t been proven to work against the coronavirus, along with other treatments.
