NFL’s Vaccine Rate At 93%, Mandatory Shots Were Discussed
The NFL says 93% of players are vaccinated for COVID-19 and the league wanted mandatory vaccination but the NFLPA wouldn't agreed to it. The league also has asked the players' union to adjust protocols so vaccinated players would be tested weekly instead of every 14 days.
Unvaccinated players are tested daily. NFLPA president JC Tretter, a center for the Cleveland Browns, said earlier this week the decision not to make vaccination mandatory was done by the league. But league officials disputed that assertion.
