The number of players who have received at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine continues to rise with the start of the 2021 season growing closer.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that 85 percent of the league’s players have received at least one shot of the vaccine. That’s up a bit from Monday and there’s also been a jump in the number of teams who have at least 90 percent of their players vaccinated.

There are now 14 clubs in that category, which is four more than there were on Monday.

The trends suggest that the start of training camp and realizations about the different protocols for unvaccinated players have lead some players to opt for the shot. The coming days will tell us if that trend is continuing with players reporting to work around the league.

  1. no games were canceled last season without a vaccine, not sure why they are pressing for it this year?

    Because now we DO have a vaccine that is safe and effective and not getting it is taking an unnecessary risk the league isnt interested in dealing with.

  3. Guy above me is a moron oh well moving on 14 is a great job but that leaves what 18 not there
    those 14 should have a huge advantage .
