Social Media Takes on Aaron Rodgers For Not Receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine


Aaron Rodgers is not expected to play on Sunday after he was positive for COVID-19. It’s unfortunate that the Green Bay Packers quarterback will not play on Sunday when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Rodgers’ positive COVID-19 test surprised fans. It was reported that Rodgers received an alternate treatment and petitioned the NFL for that treatment to be considered the same as an approved vaccine. His request was denied by NFL. 

“You know, there’s a lot of conversation around it, around the league, and a lot of guys who have made statements and not made statements, owners who have made statements,”Rodgers stated at the time. “There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to judge those guys. There are guys that’ve been vaccinated that have contracted COVID. It’s an interesting issue that I think we’re going to see played out the entire season.”Rodgers will miss his debut game since 2017, when his collarbone was broken. This is unfortunate as the Packers are currently 7-1 and hold the best record in the conference. This is a social media campaign to take on Rodgers. 

False advertising

One person was able to respondThis is: “Society created this culture. Non vaccinated people are looked down upon. Just like parenting. Create an environment where your kids want to be truthful. Don’t create one where they are scared to tell you the truth and lie about it.”



Ryan Wood wroteThis is: “I will not speculate on whether Aaron Rodgers lied about his COVID-19 vaccination status in August without hearing what he has to say. It was odd Rodgers clarified he was ‘immunized’ when asked if he was ‘vaccinated.’ His explanation will be interesting, to say the least.”



One fan repliedThis is: “Ban him from the league. That’s a fair punishment and I’d hate to see it as a big GODgers Stan as me.”


Vaccainted for Real

A user of social media respondedThis is: “13 Giants employees were vaxxed and tested positive. Then retested and 12 were negative. Because science! But by all means, get your shot and keep shaming those that haven’t. It’s productive!”


Cam Newton

One person was able to respondThis is: “Reading Rogers’ statements, sounds like he was infected previously and felt that immunity was ‘fine.’ He asked ahead of time if he could be treated like a vaxed player and that was denied.”


Mixed Message

This fan repliedThis is: “Also worth wondering in all this: Should Rodgers have been forced to sit last week as a close contact to the entire WR staff? If he was vaccinated, that wouldn’t have mattered. But if he’s unvaccinated, as he is, he probably should have been held out of that game by rule…”
