In another victory lap for conspiracy theorists, the NBA announced on Sunday that vaccinated players would require the COVID-19 booster jab.
If players refuse the booster, they must undergo COVID testing prior to each game.
The new rule goes into effect on December 1st.
The policy also applies to the coaching staff and office personnel.
NBA informed teams today that all players who received the J&J vaccine at least two months ago will be subject to Game Day testing beginning Dec. 1 if they do not receive the additional booster shot. https://t.co/l0SCUUERAA— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) November 7, 2021
The NBA has expanded their vaccine mandate to now require players to get the booster shots or be treated as unvaccinated. This is what is coming for everyone. Boosters aren’t going to end. https://t.co/XRN5kiIUaS— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 8, 2021
NBA Mandates All Previously Vaccinated Players Must Get More Vaccinated With Mandatory Boostershttps://t.co/Te4K4M0nCF— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) November 8, 2021
The BLM-NBA woke millionaires league is demanding that all players, coaching staff, and office personnel get vaccine boosters or face renewed restrictions. https://t.co/Kwzlrg57gX— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) November 8, 2021
The Association and NBPA’s backing for the new mandate addresses the proven drop in efficacy that the vaccines have, months after inoculation. Without regard for natural immunity’s effect, the NBA continues to be at the whim of vaccine efficacy to handle COVID mitigation — which hasn’t been favorable for the league.
According to OutKick’s Meg Turner, “As the Delta variant became the predominant variant in the U.S., the efficacy of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine plunged from 86% to just 13% over those six months, the study shows.”
Each player will have their full vaccination status tracked before being subject to the mandate.
Like WLT has reported for months, Governor Ron DeSantis accurately predicted vaccinated individuals would soon fall into the unvaccinated category.
It confirms the never-ending cycle of boosters that will take place until people say NO.
From The Last Refuge:
Last week Florida Governor Ron DeSantis noted the feds were likely to move the goalposts, and “fully vaccinated” will shift because never-ending booster shots will become part of the mandate. The media went bananas claiming DeSantis was spreading a conspiracy theory.
Well, today the National Basketball Association (NBA) has told all previously vaccinated players they are no longer considered vaccinated unless they get a booster shot.
The NBA is now requiring the players to get the booster jab or they cannot play. The players can pick a booster, any booster, mix-n-match, whatever… but booster they must.
I guess it wasn’t a conspiracy theory after all.
It was a conspiracy fact.
If NBA players were smart, they’d boycott the league to end the cycle of boosters.
Because it will never end until they grow a spine and stand up for themselves.
Until they find their manhood, it’s now the BBA (Booster Basketball Association).
