COVID-19 vaccines have been a topic of conversation for many sports leagues over the past weeks.
It is a personal decision whether to get vaccinated or not. Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback, shared his thoughts about getting vaccinated before the 2021 season begins.
He refused to say whether he had received the vaccine. He did say, however, that it was important for players to be educated about the vaccine.
“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 in an interview with Newy Scruggs of NBC DFW.

“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.’ 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.”
The NFL has yet to reveal how it plans on testing players in the 2021 season. It is possible that the league will not test players, as opposed to the PGA Tour which won’t start testing golfers until next month.
