Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers voiced his frustration over the media criticizing his medical choices. On Friday, Rodgers publicly addressed his stance on the vaccine after testing positive for the virus earlier in the week.

“The situation I’m in should be a conversation, not a controversy,” said Rodgers.

The player emphasized he isn’t anti-vaccine, but believes the vaccine isn’t in his best health interests after previously mentioning he was allergic to ingredients in the mRNA vaccines. Instead, the player claimed he took ivermectin to fight the virus.

“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,” said the NFL player.

Rodgers said he’s feeling much better and appreciates people like Joe Rogan for stepping up and using their platform to voice these issues.
