NFL QB Lamar Jackson Won’t Commit To Vaccine, Despite Catching COVID Twice

by Jeremy

It’s possible Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has never heard the saying, “Those who refuse to remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

The NFL star wouldn’t commit this week to get vaccinated for COVID-19, even though he has already caught the coronavirus twice.

On Monday, Jackson, 24, returned to the Ravens’ training camp after being forced to isolate at home while his teammates began workouts without him.


“When I was at home, I wasn’t doing too good because I was missing my guys,” Jackson said Monday, according to “It was like, man, and I need to get back out there with my guys.”

Jackson admitted his second COVID experience was no walk in the park.

“Just like last time probably — tired, if anything. I was sleeping a lot,” he said of his most recent bout of illness. “But I’m glad to be back.”

However, the quarterback refused to publicly commit to getting the vaccine, of which 85% of NFL players have received at least one dose.

“I got to talk to my team about this and see how they feel about it,” he said, according to “Keep learning as much as I can about it. We’ll go from there.”
