The refusal of some pro athletes to get vaccinated is difficult to fathom

Sep 2, 2021

Six months after most people were cleared for vaccination, there remains a major debate about whether to get vaccinated, despite there being no widespread medical issues from the vaccines.

Concern at the beginning was understandable, because there was no documented history besides experiments that the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines were completely safe and effective.

But now that there’s proof the vaccines work — they’re not foolproof but they reduce symptoms and damage from the virus — we are still dealing with people who refuse to get vaccinated, and it’s become a disturbing issue in the sports world.
