The Green Bay Packers quarterback recently tested positive for COVID in what appeared to be a breakthrough case after he insisted back in August that he was “immunized” against the virus.

However, it was later revealed by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo that Rodgers is in fact unvaccinated — a decision Rodgers is now defending.

The football star admitted on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Friday, November 5, that he hasn’t received any shots, but that he has been following a more homeopathic routine to beat coronavirus after consulting with Rogan.

“I’ve consulted with a now-good friend of mine, Joe Rogan, after he got COVID and I’ve been doing a lot of the stuff that he recommended in his podcasts and on the phone to me,” he said.

“I’ve been taking monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, zinc, vitamin C and D and HCQ,” the athlete continued. “And I feel pretty incredible.”

Rodgers also took the opportunity to explain that he didn’t lie when asked about his vaccination status in the offseason, but that he just chose his words carefully.

“I’m immunized,” Rodgers said during a press conference on August 26, leading many to think he meant that he was vaccinated against the virus.

“There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated,” he said at the time. “I think it’s a personal decision, I’m not gonna judge those guys.” Rodgers had also been spotted repeatedly not wearing a mask, further leading people to believe that he was vaccinated.

“There are guys that have been vaccinated that have contracted COVID. It’s an interesting issue that I think we’re going to see played out the entire season,” he said.

But now, the league MVP insists he was being honest when he said he was “immunized,” even though it was misleading. He used that specific word to explain that he was actively trying to boost his immune system against the virus, even though he hadn’t actually received any shots.

He claimed that he’s “not some sort of anti-vax, flat earther” when it comes to his controversial opinion on getting vaccinated, but that he is against vaccine mandates.

He also explained that he didn’t get the vaccine due to an allergy to both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. He claimed that he simply didn’t want the Johnson & Johnson shot because of reported side effects.

Rodgers will be unable to play in the team’s upcoming game this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
