Paul Gallen backs player choice for the flu shot
A small group of NRL players have refused to take the compulsory flu vaccination shot ahead of the start of the NRL season.
Players that refuse are now able to sign a waiver, the details of which are yet to be released.
Former Blues star Paul Gallen told Mark Levy he isn’t an anti-vaxxer but has no issue with players refusing the shot.
“There’s no vaccination against COVID-19.
“I’m not one of these people against [vaccinations] but I think it’s your right, if you don’t want to be vaccinated, you don’t have to be.
“I can understand if someone doesn’t want to have a flu shot, they don’t have to have a flu shot.”
