NFL player Aaron Rodgers tests Covid positive, will sit out game at Kansas City

NFL QB Aaron Rodgers tested positive for Covid. Rodgers claimed homeopathic immunization.

The Facts

Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, will not play Sunday because he tested positive for Covid-19.

According to NFL.com, he received homeopathic treatment for COVID-19 immunization and asked the NFL to consider that as being vaccinated. The league, however, did not.

Prevea Health announced Saturday that it would no longer continue its partnership with Rodgers after he publicly made misleading and false claims about COVID-19 on “The Pat McAfee Show.”

The NFL is shutting down claims from Rodgers, alleging that a league doctor told him “it’s impossible for a vaccinated person to get Covid or spread Covid.”

Rodgers claimed to be allergic to an ingredient in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and refused to get Johnson & Johnson shot after hearing about people having adverse reactions.
