Since I am going back to work part-time, I've decided to go ahead and get vaccinated. I get my second Moderna shot tomorrow. The research on the vaccine has been very good and if you get COVID and your body reacts badly to it, some people cannot get rid of the symptoms. So, I think those in the NFL should get their shots as well, but it should be optional.
As the NFL approaches the 2021 season, the league informed clubs that it would not extend the season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players that causes a game cancellation.https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-covid-19-o ... elled-game
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that the NFL sent a memo to its clubs stating that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week schedule due to a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will forfeit and be credited with a loss, per sources informed of the situation.
In addition, players on both teams will not be paid for the lost contest, and the team responsible for the cancelled game due to unvaccinated players will cover financial losses and be subject to potential discipline from the Commissioner's office.
