There’s not a ton to add to the story beyond the headline. Andrew Wiggins, coming off the best year of his career, is still kind of sore that he had to get vaccinated.
Here’s what he told FanSided’s Mark Carmen about how unfair it was that he had to get a vaccine.
“I did it, and I was an All-Star this year and champion, so that was the good part, just not missing out on the year, the best year of my career. But for my body, I just don’t like putting all that stuff in my body, so I didn’t like that and I didn’t like that it wasn’t my choice. I didn’t like that it was either get this or don’t play.”
First off, it wasn’t an ultimatum. His religious exemption got denied, and he could’ve pulled a Kyrie. The Warriors might not have cowardly given into letting him play only away games, but tough shit.

The lineup of serums might be different for Canadians, of which Wiggins is one, so he could be missing a dose here or there. Ideally, he’s protected from polio and other serious, mostly eradicated diseases though. Yet that’s up for debate because he told ESPN vaccines are “not really something we believe in as a family,” noting in October that he’s the only member of his family who has received the vaccine.
I know. What a scam, right? Protection from harmful pathogens is such an archaic concept.
Wiggins cited long-term concerns about the vaccine. If you…
