Aaron Rodgers and Wisconsin-based organization Prevea Health end partnership

The announcement comes one day after the Packers quarterback appeared on the "Pat McAfee Show," where he explained why he's unvaccinated against COVID-19

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WKBT) – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Wisconsin-based healthcare organization Prevea Health have ended their partnership after nine years, according to a release from the healthcare system Saturday.

“Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic,” Prevea Health said in a statement. “This includes encouraging and helping all eligible populations to become vaccinated against COVID-19 to prevent the virus from further significantly impacting lives and childhoods.”

The release did not say why the organization and Rodgers split, but the announcement comes one day after the reigning NFL MVP appeared on the “Pat McAfee Show,” where he explained why he’s not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Rodgers said in August that he was “immunized” against the virus after a reporter asked him if he was vaccinated.

Rodgers, who is not playing on Sunday because of a positive COVID-19 test that went public earlier this week, went on to say during the “Pat McAfee Show” that his statement during training camp was not a lie.

“During that time, it was a very witch hunt that was going on across the league where everybody in the media was so concerned about who was vaccinated and who wasn’t, and what that meant and who was being selfish, and who would talk about it, and what it meant if they said it’s a personal decision, they shouldn’t have to disclose their own medical information, and whatnot,” Rodgers said. “And at the time, my plan was to say that I’ve been immunized. It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie. It was the truth…I believe strongly in bodily autonomy, and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something. Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody.”

The star quarterback said on the show he is allergic to an ingredient in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and chose not to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after learning it was paused due to claims of blood clotting issues.

Instead, Rodgers received homeopathic treatment from his personal doctor to raise his antibody levels from the virus.

Rodgers asked the NFL to review his request for vaccination status, but it was denied, ruling him an unvaccinated player.

The MVP’s next chance to return to game action will be next Sunday, Nov. 14, when the Packers take on the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field.

Until Rodgers is available, former first-round pick Jordan Love will be Green Bay’s starting quarterback.
