Aaron Rodgers was sidelined from Sunday’s Green Bay Packers-Kansas City Chiefs game due to a positive coronavirus test but he was on the top of fans’ minds after he revealed his reasons for being unvaccinated.

Rodgers made waves on Friday when he explained himself on “The Pat McAfee Show.” He rattled off several reasons why he chose not to get vaccinated, including an allergy he said he has from an ingredient in mRNA vaccines. He said he also talked to his friend Joe Rogan about the treatments the podcaster received when he was diagnosed with COVID and admitted one of the medicines he was on was ivermectin.
