Cole Beasley tries to clarify stance on COVID-19 vaccine: ‘Information is being withheld from players’
Same ol’ Cole.
Cole Beasley has been the NFL’s most outspoken critic of vaccination around the league, and on Wednesday, he further tried explaining his stance on vaccination.
Beasley blames someone — it’s unclear who, exactly — of withholding information from players in order for the player to get a vaccine.
Beasley’s statement in full:

The vaccines, in fact, do not prevent people from contracting COVID, as Beasley said: Rather, they offer proven protection against severe illness, hospitalization and death, and have also been proven to help reduce the rate of spread of the virus from person to person.
Current data indicates that breakthrough cases — symptomatic cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated individuals — currently sits at 0.098 percent in the nation. Infections across the country have been on the rise with the spread of the Delta variant.
Vaccines are still effective against the Delta variant, and have shown no sweeping, long-term adverse side effects.
Beasley has ripped the NFL and their protocols surrounding COVID-19, so his claims of being pro- or anti-vax seem to be a bit of a deviation from prior comments.
