Andrew Wiggins Still Regrets Getting Vaccinated

It’s hard to imagine where Andrew Wiggins would be right now without getting the COVID vaccine prior to last season.

As it stands, Wiggins ultimately let a California mandate that would’ve forced him out of Warriors’ home games dictate his decision. And luckily for the Warriors , he caved, or else it’s hard to imagine them ending up as NBA Champions.


Still, Wiggins wishes he didn’t have to take the shot.

“I still wish I didn’t get [vaccinated], to be honest with you,” Wiggins told FanSided.

Andrew Wiggins would elaborate on his latest take.

“I did it, and I was an All-Star this year and champion, so that was the good part, just not missing out on the year, the best year of my career,” he added. “But for my body, I just don’t like putting all that stuff in my body, so I didn’t like that and I didn’t like that it wasn’t my choice. I didn’t like that it was either get this or don’t play.”

Because Andrew Wiggins got the vaccine, he had a career, year, became an NBA champion, shedded the “bust label”, and will now make a whole lot of money on his next contract.

Yeah, I’d say it was worth it. Regardless of what he’s saying now.
