Ron Rivera “Beyond Frustrated” Players Won’t Take Shot, Points To His Immune Deficiency After Having Cancer
Ron Rivera says he is ‘beyond frustrated’ that so many of his players on the Football Team still won’t go out and vaccinated. It’s not just because the team is at the bottom of the league in doing, so, but he pointed out him having cancer last year and how it left his body.
“I’m truly frustrated, I’m beyond frustrated. I’m immune deficient, and with this new variant, who knows.”
“I think the big thing really is to have individual conversations. I’m not going to tell anyone what to do. … I hope we can get to these guys, to help them understand it’s not just to them, but also the folks around them.”
The Washington Football Team’s (WFT) training camp has actually partnered with health organizations to promote COVID-19 vaccinations and prevention strategies.
“We are pleased to work with the Washington Football Team to help ensure that Training Camp is a fun, safe, and educational environment for everyone in attendance,” said Dr. Norman Oliver, the state health commissioner. “With our mobile vaccination site set up all week at training camp, this is another wonderful opportunity for anyone who is able to get vaccinated to do so. Your best protection from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.”
