Aaron Rodgers Says He Misled Media With ‘Immunized’ Comment

For the majority of the 2021 season, Aaron Rodgers’s COVID-19 vaccine status endured as one of the most puzzling and controversial headlines in the sports world.

The Packers star revisited the situation Saturday on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, and revealed to host Joe Rogan that his infamous “I’m immunized” comment was actually an intentional misdirection.

During the conversation, Rodgers, 38, discussed the choice of words he used while revealing his status to reporters last August. After sharing that his medical exemption had been denied by the NFL, the veteran quarterback reiterated why he went with an “immunization process through a holistic doctor,” telling Rogan he was uncomfortable taking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and was allergic to an ingredient used in the Moderna and Pfizer—glycol, or PEG.
