NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins continues to resist the COVID jab, even though the NFL is putting pressure on players to take the shot. 

NFL leadership has recently stated that it desires a mandatory vaccination policy for players similar to what it has for staff and coaches.  

Non-playing NFL personnel are subject to a tier system that hinges on their vaccination status. Those who qualify for Tier 1 and Tier 2 are allowed to access “football only” areas, whereas those who are not in those tiers are denied access.  

In April, the NFL released a memo explaining that all those with Tier 1 and 2 access “should be expected to be vaccinated unless they have a bona fide medical or religious ground for not doing so.” The memo also encouraged clubs to “schedule and participate in vaccine information sessions for players, family and staff.” It also clarifies that those who are vaccinated will have “work-related benefits” such as less rigorous testing and no required quarantine if exposed to a COVID-positive individual.
