Aaron Rodgers rang the bell again about COVID-19 this week.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback said he supports “the freedom to choose what’s in your best interest.” But he was aiming for the intolerance surrounding the vaccine debate.
Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 in November when it was revealed he had not been vaccinated after initially telling the media he was “immune” from the virus.

Since then, the veteran player has been targeted for his alternative approach to protecting himself from the virus and his approach to a vaccine. During his Tuesday appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers reconsidered the question.
“I’ve been accused of spreading misinformation when I talk about a treatment plan that I used to improve — and that a number of people, the doctors, have used,” Rodgers said. “I think one of my problems – and I’ve raised this a few times – is that they don’t talk about the improvement of men’s use of these things, the improvement of people’s use of these things.”
Rodgers noted the record number of players being added to the Reserve/COVID-19 roster this month, adding: “There is still no conversation, at least publicly, about treatment options for those who test positive.”

Rodgers said Tuesday that several teams “behind the scenes” have used or recommended the same treatment plans he used during his recovery.
If science cannot be questioned, it is no longer science. “It’s propaganda, and that’s the truth,” he said. “When did science become a blind deal and there was no discussion about what could actually heal people and work for people? It makes no sense to me.”

“I have no problem if someone is vaccinated. It is your body, your choice,” he said. “I made a decision that was in my body’s best interest and it should be. There should be freedom to choose what is in your best interests. “
