GREEN BAY, Wis. – Packers QB Aaron Rodgers spoke for the first time Friday afternoon since testing positive for COVID-19, claiming that he took alternative treatments for COVID-19 because he was allergic to ingredients in the mRNA vaccines.

Back in late August when Rodgers was asked about his vaccination status, he said: “Yeah, I’ve been immunized.” News of Rodgers testing positive for COVID-19 and being unvaccinated made his word choice controversial, especially since the star quarterback was seen holding mask-free press conferences in club facilities, which is against the rules agreed upon by the NFL and NFL Players Association.

Rodgers appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show” Friday afternoon to explain his vaccination status and what the last few days were like for him after testing positive for COVID-19.

Rodgers started the interview by saying, “I realize I’m in the cross-hairs of the woke mob right now, so before my final nail gets put in my cancel-culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies that are out there about myself right now.”

Rodgers said he did his own research about vaccines in the offseason, and met with individuals in the medical field.

“It was pretty easy in the beginning to eliminate two of them”, Rodgers said of the available vaccines. “I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines.”
