A clip showing Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac describing his unvaccinated status went viral Tuesday on Twitter, drawing praise and ire. Isaac, a 2017 first-round pick, expressed concerns about long-term adverse side effects, correctly noting the inherent risks.
As an elite athlete who has already had COVID-19, Isaac says it makes more sense to be hesitant about taking the jab. In his opinion and from his own research, it also won’t make much of a difference for those around him whether he is vaccinated or not.
Watch Isaac’s response here:
Isaac is not the only NBA star to make public statements against the vaccination recently. Washington Wizards superstar Bradley Beal shared similar sentiments, posing a question for the high and mighty vaccinated. Watch:
Very refreshing to have two (2) professional athletes who are not brain-dead make common sense comments that are actually based on scientific facts. I am 77 years old and my wife is 71. We have compromised health issues and both have recently had Covid-19 as reported to the health department. We went through hell during the infection stage and the recover stage. I would not wish that on my worst enemy. However, we recovered and are on the way to recovery without the concern of what adverse effects of the vaccine will do to our bodies. The Israeli Heath Department conducted an extensive test on the degree on immunity a person has after contracting the Covid-19 virus and found it was 27 times as protective as the shots without the dangers of introducing a chemical alien to your body into your system. The virus itself is horrible and we were sick for a month but we are many times safer to ourselves and others then if we had taken the chemical shots that have cause irreparable damage to millions of people worldwide. Case closed.
