Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is doubling down on his anti-COVID-vaccination jihad.

He drew a firestorm over his October comments on “The Pat McAfee Show” related to his decision not to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

And yesterday he reiterated his stance.

For more than 12 minutes on the McAfee show, Rodgers, who previously gave a misleading answer when asked about being vaccinated during a news conference in August, sounded off on the NFL’s protocols, saying the league has created a “two-class system” of the vaccinated vs. the unvaccinated, referenced a doctor who has spread misinformation about the pandemic and called science “propaganda” if it can’t be questioned.

McAfee got Rodgers started on COVID-19 when he asked for his thoughts on whether the NFL will change their protocols based on the recent updated guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that has lowered the number of days those infected with COVID-19 should isolate.

On Tuesday, the NFL and NFL Players Association followed suit, agreeing to shorten the amount of time that team personnel who have tested positive must quarantine for five days, if they don’t show symptoms. There remains a more strict protocol for unvaccinated players, including the frequency of testing and limitations on their activity.

Rodgers said he doesn’t “have that fear” around COVID-19 because he doesn’t have to test for the virus.

Per NFL protocols, since Rodgers had COVID-19, he doesn’t have to test for the virus for 90 days. He’s in that window until a few days after the NFC championship game. However, testing is available for any player with symptoms and nonvaccinated players, like vaccinated players, can still be infected multiple times.
