Cowboys QB Prescott Speaks About The COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is still a very sensitive subject for many people. Some are all about getting it, while others are a little more reserved.

NFL superstar quarterback Dak Prescott says he’s not telling anyone — family, friends or teammates — what they should do.

The Dallas Cowboys QB was interviewed recently by Newy Scruggs of NBC DFW, and he said that everyone should learn and be educated on the vaccine before making any decisions.

“For me, I think it’s important just for everybody to educate themselves on the reason of why to get vaccinated and why it can either help in their cause or maybe help the world,” Prescott said.

“But it’s not necessarily something I’d like to share or something I’d like to promote or say ‘Hey, you should, you shouldn’t,’” Prescott said.

“Because when you’re putting in a vaccination obviously you’re putting something that’s foreign that obviously the experts put together and made the decision that that’s the best way to go about it, but it’s all up to your belief and I’m not the one to try to move people and tell them, ‘Hey, you need to do this, you need to do that’ because we all react individual to everything.”

Many NFL players have declined to tell reporters whether they have received the vaccine. I guess this is just Prescott’s turn.

  1. If only more public figures talked with diplomacy like Prescott things will be a lot smoother. The harder you push something without giving people adequately detailed answers to their clear concerns, the more suspicious and resistant they become. The message so far has been, “Put blind faith in big pharma and your government. Just do it.” Sorry if that’s not good enough for sane people.
