Michael Porter Jr. Who Thinks Covid Is Being Used For Population Control On Why He Doesn’t Feel Safe Taking The Vaccine

At Nuggets media day, head coach Michael Malone said he would love to tell the media that the team is 100% vaccinated, but he couldn’t say that because they aren’t.

He didn’t disclose who was or wasn’t vaccinated or how many were or weren’t, but most people could guess at least one of the players who weren’t vaccinated, and that was Michael Porter Jr.

That guess would have been 100% correct because he is not currently vaccinated.

While speaking with the Denver Post, Porter said that he wasn’t comfortable taking the vaccine and feels like there shouldn’t be a mandate that players should get to take it even though he’s had Covid twice.

“For me, I had COVID twice, I saw how my body reacted, and although the chances are slim, with the vaccine, there’s a chance you could have a bad reaction to it”

“My stance on the mandate is it definitely shouldn’t be a mandate. It should be everyone’s decision. I see it both ways. If you want to get it because you feel more protected and you feel safer, and it’s protecting people around you, get it. That’s good for you. But if you feel like, ‘Oh, for me, I don’t feel safe getting it, then don’t get it.’”

This isn’t really a surprise since last year, he said that Covid was being used for population control.

If he doesn’t get vaccinated, he will have to miss games in New York and San Fransisco and lose game checks for those games. Since he plays in Denver and they don’t have any state or city mandates for being vaccinated, him missing a few games won’t deter him from his stance.

The Nuggets probably do want the guy they just gave a max contract to be on the floor when he can if healthy.
