Michael Jordan backs the NBA’s COVID-19 vaccine protocols.
The NBA doesn’t require that players get the vaccine. Players who are not vaccinated will not receive a payment if they miss a match due to local vaccine mandates.
Jordan, 58 years old, said that “I am total and in unison the league.” NBC’s Today.
Jordan, who is now the owner of Charlotte Hornets, stated that he is a strong believer in science.
“I’m going to stick with that and hopefully, everybody abides by whatever the league sets the rules,” Jordan said.
According to the Charlotte Hornets, 100% of their population is vaccinated. The Associated Press.
The former NBA star’s comments come as some high-profile athletes have expressed reluctance to get vaccinated.
On Tuesday, the Brooklyn Nets announced that Kyrie Irving won’t be allowed to play or practice with the team until he’s vaccinated.
