More Details Emerge About The ‘Alternative Treatment’ Aaron Rodgers Took Instead Of The Vaccine

Aaron Rodgers is the talk of the NFL once again on Wednesday.

The star quarterback went under COVID protocol, meaning he will have to miss this weekend’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Prior to the season, it was believed that Aaron Rodgers had received the vaccine based on his rhetoric. But after his failed test, it was reported that he actually took some sort of ‘alternative treatment’ and lobbied with the league office to give him vaccinated status.


Shortly after the bizarre story dropped, more details emerged on how Aaron Rodgers treated himself for the virus.


“Rodgers received homeopathic treatment from his personal doctor to raise his antibody levels and asked the NFL to review his status. The league pointed Rodgers to the NFL-NFLPA protocols, which do not account for such an exemption for players. So, Rodgers remained subject to a variety of restrictions, including daily testing, mask-wearing and high-risk close contact protocol that would force him to isolate for five days based on interaction with a positive individual, even if he tested negative.

The report also indicated that Aaron Rodgers’ efforts to raise his antibodies could mean he’d only need one shot to play sooner.

If his antibody levels are high enough, Rodgers could be considered fully vaccinated with just one shot. The NFL-NFLPA regular-season COVID protocols allow for an individual to become fully vaccinated via “a quantitative antibody test (taken at the Club facility and administered by BioReference Laboratory personnel after Aug. 26, 2021 and before the individual has received any dose of a COVID vaccine) demonstrating COVID total antibody levels (IgG, IgA, IgM) to the spike protein of 100 U/mL or greater, and a positive antibody test to the COVID IgG nucleocapsid protein, and 14 days have passed since the individual received one dose of any COVID vaccine (Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer or Moderna).” 

Nevertheless, Aaron Rodgers led everyone to believe that he received the shot when he answered, “yes, I’m immunized” prior to the season. And no matter how you shake it, this whole thing is pretty par-for-the-course for how Rodgers handles things.

Drama just surrounds Aaron Rodgers. And he embraces it.
