A Quarter of Football League Players Say They Won’t Get Vaccinated

Despite huge pressure, hardcore of holdouts remains.

At least a quarter of Football League players say they will refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine, with authorities concerned that the number of players getting the jab has slowed drastically over the last month.

Although the number of players to have been double jabbed has increased from 18% in August to 49% in the latest set of figures, that number appears to have hit a brick wall.

“The number of players who have been immunised or plan to get the jab has gone up by only 5% over the past month,” reports the Mail on Sunday.

“Approximately 75% of players this month across the EFL are fully vaccinated, have had a single jab or intend to be vaccinated,” according to the report, meaning a full quarter do not intend to get the shot.

The main reasons the players cite for declining to take the shot is that are they young, healthy athletes who likely won’t face serious illness even if they get the virus, in addition to concern over the side effects of the vaccine.

“They are also concerned by stories of people suffering heart inflammation after taking the vaccine, even though official medical agencies have reported such cases as “very rare,” according to the report, with speculation still raging as to whether Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 might have been caused by the vaccine.

As we highlighted last month, despite a massive PR push to encourage vaccination, and the threat to teams who don’t achieve high rates being punished, only 7 of the 20 Premier League clubs have more than 50% of the players in their squads vaccinated.

The fact that so many holdouts remained led to footballing authorities having to reverse a vaccine mandate for players performing at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

The government and media continue to blame “conspiracy theorists” for influencing the players not to get the jab.

This is tremendously stupid and disrespectful given that these athletes are at the top of their game and being obsessed with health and fitness is literally their job.

If the people whose very careers and livelihood is wholly dependent on them remaining healthy, shouldn’t we be paying attention when they express hesitancy about taking the vaccine, or should we merely dismiss them as uninformed cranks?

Pew Survey Finds COVID Has Virtually Disappeared as a Major Concern For Americans

It’s over, but some restrictions remain.

Illustrating how the issue has largely disappeared, a new poll of Americans finds COVID to be the least of their concerns out of a list of 12 different subjects.

The survey was conducted by Pew Research between April 25-May 1.

Just 19 per cent of respondents said COVID was still a “very big problem,” while 31 per cent said it was a “small problem” and a further 12 per cent said it was “not a problem at all.”

In comparison, 70 per cent of Americans said inflation was a “very big problem,” with a further 23 per cent describing it as a “moderately big problem.”

Ten other issues, including violent crime, illegal immigration and the condition of infrastructure, all rank above COVID-19 in terms of being more of a concern.

As one commentator observed, the war in Ukraine appears nowhere on the list, although Pew chose not to include it as an option.

“Democrats are nearly four times as likely as Republicans to rate climate change as a very big problem (63% vs. 16%),” reports Pew. “Republicans, by contrast, are far more likely than Democrats to view illegal immigration as a very big problem (65% vs. 19%).”

Despite the pandemic virtually being over, numerous states are still enforcing indoor mask mandates and other COVID restrictions that refuse to die.

As we highlighted yesterday, Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session despite the fact that she wasn’t wearing one inside the theater.

Broadway Star Angrily Lectures Audience Member For Not Wearing a Mask While Not Wearing a Mask

“It’s okay when we do it!”

Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session, despite the fact that neither LuPone or any of her colleagues were wearing masks at all.

LuPone was appearing alongside her “Company” costars at the American Theatre Wing when she appeared to target a woman sat near the front for not wearing her face mask over her nose.

“Put your mask over your nose. That’s why you’re in the theater,” LuPone screeched.

“That is the rule. If you don’t want to follow the rule, get the fuck out. I’m serious, she added while gesticulating aggressively. “Who do you think you are if you do not respect the people sitting around you?”

When one audience member dared to respond, “I pay your salary,” LuPone shot back.

“You pay my salary? Bullshit!” Chris Harper pays my salary,” she said, referring to the show’s producer.

No one in the audience pointed out the ultimate irony – LuPone was lecturing everyone else in the room for not wearing a mask properly while she wasn’t wearing one at all, and neither were any of her colleagues.

LuPone previously missed 10 performances earlier this year after testing positive for COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated.

As ever, LuPone responded by thanking the vaccine.

During a previous appearance on The View, the actress also demanded that mask mandates in theaters be kept in place for much longer.

“Just because those theaters are old, the seats are close, and we’re not out of this,” she said.

As we have exhaustively highlighted, there is no scientific evidence that masks have any measurable impact on stopping the spread of COVID-19, but they have been more successful in stunting the cognitive development of babies and toddlers.

The UK government’s own investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

According to University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, when England dropped face mask mandates back in July and Scotland maintained them, it made “no meaningful difference” to infection rates.

We previously highlighted the comments of UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon, who dismissed masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.

“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.

Given that the event was a Q and A, and not a theatrical performance, LuPone and her colleagues could have easily all worn masks, but chose not to, while imposing the rule on everyone else in the room.

Apparently, they’re better than you, and different rules apply.

“It’s okay when we do it!”
