Aaron Rodgers says he consulted Joe Rogan about vaccine doubts

During an interview with Pat Mcafee, Aaron Rodgers says he asked Joe Rogan for advice on dealing with COVID-19.

On Wednesday, Tom Pelissero revealed that the Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers had tested positive for COVID-19 and would miss the Packers vs. Chiefs Week 9 matchup. Later the same day it was also officially revealed by NFL league sources that Rodgers had not been vaccinated against COVID-19, despite the fact that he had led many in local sports media to believe he had.

Rodgers did not have any media availability or interviews on Wednesday and Thursday while the story unfolded.  However, on Friday, Rodgers made his first public statement concerning the situation in an interview with Pat Mcafee on the Pat Mcafee Show.

He answered several questions concerning his vaccination status.

When talking about his recovery journey, Rodgers revealed that many of his recent decisions concerning his recovery from COVID-19 have come after consulting with Joe Rogan.

“I consulted a good friend of mine, Joe Rogan, and I’ve been doing a lot of the stuff he recommended in his podcast,” Rodgers said.

More from Rodgers:

“There’s a lot to natural immunity, and natural immunity has not been part of the conversation”

“If you’ve gotten covid, and recovered from it, that’s the best boost to immunity that we can have”

Both Joe Rogan and Aaron Rodgers have taken the controversial drug Ivermectin

Rodgers would not expand on exactly what the long-time UFC commentator had told him to do, although he did reveal that he has been taking Ivermectin, a treatment that the FDA has not approved for the treatment of COVID-19.

Rogan has not only touted Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 on his podcast, but also publicly used the medication last month when he tested positive for COVID-19, along with monoclonal antibodies and Z-pack antibiotics.

Rodgers also parroted many of Rogan’s defenses of Ivermectin, “Why do people hate Ivermectin? Not just because Trump championed it, but because it’s a cheap generic, and you can’t make any money off of it.”

Rodgers will be out in the game against the Chiefs but is eligible to return in the Packers Week 9 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. The NFL is investigating Rodgers for not following COVID-19 protocol and for lying to the media, and although fines are likely, it appears unlikely that he will see any form of suspension.
