Jabrill Peppers protecting himself against COVID
NFL players have the choice of whether or not they want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 heading into the upcoming 2021 season.
It looks like New York Giants’ starting safety Jabrill Peppers has opted to get vaccinated after sharing an image of his vaccination card on Instagram.
Every player is entitled to do what they want, but it makes a lot of sense to get vaccinated due to the fact that they will interact with so many different people throughout the season. We saw in 2020 how easy it was for COVID to spread throughout an organization and that was with strict precautions in place. Even the Giants themselves had several people get sick.
The NFL and their franchises can’t keep those strict precautions in place forever so a vaccination is a good choice with more coach and player interactions on deck for the 2021 season.
Players like Cam Newton and Myles Garrett who contracted COVID last year admitted that it took them a while to feel better. So even if a player catches the virus and recovers, it could have lingering effects on them that hurt their production on the field.
