“I believe in the freedom to choose what we put in our bodies and in the freedom of conscience. I agree with him that science clearly shows that the vaccinated are spread essentially at the same rate as the unvaccinated. said Fisher, who is the husband. of country music superstar Carrie Underwood, wrote in Instagram caption.
âThe @nhl @nfl and other leagues ignore the science and choose to coerce and punish unvaccinated players with these restrictions. If they really cared about people’s health, they would have daily tests for everyone. the past 2 years have clearly shown us that it is not about our health, it is about controlling our lives. I will not stand it. It is time to fight for our medical freedom and I feel for those who have. been fired for choosing medical freedom. the medical choice is anti-American and unacceptable. We must stand up now before it is too late !! “
The Green Bay Packers superstar appeared in an interview on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Friday and spoke about several reasons he chose not to get the shot, including an allergy he said he had due to an ingredient in mRNA vaccines. He said he also told his friend Joe Rogan about the treatments Rogan took when the podcaster was diagnosed with COVID and admitted that one of the drugs he was taking was ivermectin.

Rodgers shot NFL media for tearing it up and insisted that he would have explained himself if someone had asked him to explain what he meant when he said he was immune. Additionally, he said he was allergic to some of the ingredients in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and chose not to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to some of its side effects.
Rodgers said the Packers know what his vaccine status is. He also complained about protocols for players.
âSome of the rules, to me, are not based on science at all. They are purely trying to shame people, like needing to wear a mask on a podium when everyone in the room is vaccinated and wears a mask – makes no sense to me, “Rodgers said.” If you get vaccinated to protect yourself from a virus that I don’t have as an unvaccinated individual, then why worry about all that could I give you?
“I followed all the protocols to the letter except the one I just mentioned because it doesn’t make sense to me. My daily routine is the routine of an unvaccinated person.”
Rodgers said he consulted Rogan about alternative treatments, including ivermectin, and called him a friend. In August, the FDA warned people infected with COVID against using ivermectin.
