This week, a Forward for the championship-winning Golden State Warriors joined a growing chorus of high-profile celebrities and athletes who have expressed reservations about the Covid-19 vaccine.
Golden State Warriors Forward Andrew Wiggins said that he wishes he did not get the vaccine but took it because it was the only way that he would be allowed to play in the 2021-2022 season for the NBA.
Wiggins joins one of the NFL’s star franchise quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, in being skeptical of the vaccine.
Rodgers has been an outspoken critic of the government’s Covid-19 policy and an advocate of alternate treatments for Covid-19.
MMA fighter and celebrity podcaster Joe Rogan has also expressed skepticism towards the Covid vaccine.

Golden State Warriors forward and NBA Champion Andrew Wiggins suggested he regrets getting the COVID-19 vaccine during the 2021–2022 season, even though he won a championship.
“I still wish I didn’t get it (the vaccinate), to be honest with you,” Wiggins, 27, told FanSided this week.
Wiggins said that the only way he would be able to play last season is if he got the shot due to San Francisco’s COVID-19 rules around vaccines. Throughout the season, he refused to get the shot and claimed a religious exemption before he was ultimately denied and had to receive the vaccine in October in order to play.
“I did it,” he said, referring to getting the shot. “And I was an All-Star this year and champion, so that was the good part, just not missing out on the year, the best year of my career,” Wiggins added, but he stated that he was forced to get the shot against his will.
