What up, Beck and Mannix

It’s great to have Beck back in my podcast feed. One of my favorite voices in the NBA and excited to see how the show grows and evolves

Didn’t discuss Jonathan Issac

I find it interesting you didn’t discuss Jonathan Issac’s explanation for not getting the vaccine since he already had COVId. Israel study demonstrated value of natural immunity. England recommends only one dose in young males due to risk of myocarditis. The risk of COVID is extremely low for young healthy individuals. The risk of vaccine adverse reaction is extremely low. However I read all the time how careful athletes are with what they ingest. Thus it becomes a individual risk assessment in an athlete whose number one value is their body. Some of the other athletes not taking the vaccine were incoherent but Issac was thorough.

And the vaccine is to protect you and not others. Breakthrough cases exist and the vaccine lowers the complication risk but we do not vaccinate to protect others. We vaccinate to protect ourselves.
