Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre was asked on CNN about the importance of NFL players getting the COVID vaccine, and his answer may not have been what the network expected.

“There’s a great deal of uncertainty,” Favre said. “You hear one thing one day, and you hear something that’s totally different the next. And this is from experts, experts on both sides of the argument. The vaccines that have been administered within the last six to eight months didn’t go through a 20 or 30-year human trial study that the FDA requires.”

Favre warned that, in his opinion, we are the human trials.

“I think some people are frightened by that and the conflicting info that we’re all getting,” he added.

When asked whether he’s been vaccinated, Favre said he’d rather not say one way or the other.

“It’s not my place to say get the vaccine or don’t get the vaccine,” he said. “I think that’s a matter of choice by all individuals and that’s why we live in America.”
