Prevea Health, Aaron Rodgers end their partnership

USA TODAY Sports

When Aaron Rodgers said he feared the “woke mob” and “cancel culture,” perhaps he meant “institutions whose mission it is to promote public health in the state where I play professional football.”

Prevea Health and Rodgers, in a joint statement, have announced that they are ending their partnership, effective today.

“Aaron has been a partner of Prevea Health, serving as a spokesperson and supporting the health care organizations health and wellness initiatives throughout Wisconsin, since 2012,” the statement explains. “Prevea Health remains deeply committed to protecting its patients, staff, providers and communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes encouraging and helping all eligible populations to become vaccinated against COVID-19 to prevent the virus from further significantly impacting lives and livelihoods.”

Prevea Health extended the relationship for four years in 2019. At the time, Prevea CEO Ashok Rai (pictured) said this: “As one of the most respected athletes in the country, Aaron is truly passionate about improving the health and wellness of our communities. His commitment to our message and his ability to add his own personal twist comes from his own passion of improving the health and wellness of Wisconsin.”

This time around, Aaron’s personal twist undermined the heath and wellness of the communities Prevea serves. Resulting in an abrupt and permanent cessation of the partnership.

  1. Keep in mind, this wouldn’t be happening if Rodgers had simply apologized instead of compounding his initial lies and subterfuge with attacks on the Public, promoting unsafe practices and more lies.

  2. Rodgers has always operated like he is above everybody and everything. Maybe now that he is getting universally crushed, he will check is ego and make an adjustment? Somehow, I doubt it.

  3. Pooooor Aaron, having to deal with the follow up to misleading the fan base and sponsors. I wonder how far down the rabbit hole this will go.

  4. I love how much people hate getting put it in their place.

    I never anticipated I’d have more respect for Favre than Rodgers, at any point in my life.

  5. Don’t be surprised if there are a whole lot State Farm commercials with Patrick Mahomes this weekend and very few or none with AR. Not saying it’s right or wrong just something I’m curious to see.

  6. Can anyone tell me where Joe Rogan went to medical school?
    Thats as rich as showering praise on Richard Sherman – The Adderall kid – for going to Stanford, because ya know, Stanford was really high on Shermy’s academic prowess and higher level of thought. What a giant in academia

    This makes me want to go out and buy an Aaron Rodgers jersey

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I bet you won’t.

  8. I’m quitting our State Fa insurance until they drop AR and his stupid commercials. He sucks.

  9. Will State Farm keep airing Rogers’ commercials?

    It’s not just the anti-vaxx position that will work against him to continue to be a face of the company. His comments implying he was “immunized” make him look disingenuous. Claiming he’s a victim is not a good look.

    If they cut him that’s not “cancel culture”. It’s business.

    That said, he’s still one of the top 5 QBs in the NFL if not the best.

  10. Can anyone tell me where Joe Rogan went to medical school?

    Rogan didn’t go to med school and has never dispensed medical advice. All he did was tell people what he was prescribed by his medical doctor and the lefties lost their hive mind.

    Now he’s being called right wing even though he advocated for Bernie Sanders and is generally very progressive on his social views. All this proves that no Matter how progressive you are, if you show a shred of individuality, they will try to destroy you.

  11. One 300 yard game with a W and this is all forgotten. Our media really has become cringe worthy

  12. This is exactly the cancel culture Rodgers was talking about. Don’t do what the mob tells you to do, lose what you’ve worked for. Funny how Florio hasn’t mentioned that Rodgers has an allergy to both the Moderna and Pfizer, and at the time of the interview Johnson and Johnson was off the shelf because it wasn’t safe. I took the vaccine and highly recommend most others do as well, but it would be really nice if more than 10% of the country had critical thinking skills instead of just blindly doing what they are told they are supposed to do.

  13. Prevea, which is a major healthcare provider in Green Bay and Wisconsin, made the inevitably correct move. Now the first domino has fallen.

  14. As a Bostonian married to a Chicagoan, I get why my wife hates Rodgers and the packers.

    God he’s such an arrogant clown. So glad we had tommy and now Mac.

    Rodgers is a DRAMA QUEEN

  15. He’ll be 38 in December. Pretty sure this partnership was already in the end phase.

  16. “ Funny how Florio hasn’t mentioned that Rodgers has an allergy to both the Moderna and Pfizer, and at the time of the interview Johnson and Johnson was off the shelf because it wasn’t safe.”
    **********

    The J&J vaccine was held out for just a couple of weeks while additional data was considered. The extremely rare blood clotting is almost exclusively in females less than 50 years old, which does not apply to Rodgers.

    Also, allergy is NOT a valid reason to avoid the vaccines. I have many allergies and was therefore hesitant, so I consulted with an allergist/immunologist (at a major university medical center). He was very clear: any allergic reaction (including the most severe) can be easily treated, with no long-term side effects. The potential risks of Covid are way, way greater than some temporary allergy symptoms.

  17. If this ending up costing the Packers draft picks and/or fines, Rodgers will get his wish of a one way ticket out of Green Bay. The problem will be who will want to sign such a liar and breaker of rules?

  18. >> hornedhell says: One 300 yard game with a W and this is all forgotten. <<

    There's definitely confidence in Jordan Love, but 300 yards is a bit ambitious.

  19. Aaron, do you know what they call alternative medicine that actually works? Medicine.

  20. I love Rodgers. I think he completely wrong about covid stuff, but it in no way impacts how much I love watching play quarterback for my favorite team.

  21. Being asked the question …Are you Vaccinated and replying you are immunized is not lying. Not correcting the medias misconception or twisting of what you said is not being misleading. It’s not Aaron’s job to set the record straight on the medias assumption .

  22. “Aaron’s personal twist undermined the heath and wellness of the communities Prevea serves.”

    Did he prevent others from getting vaccinated? No.
    Was he anymore of a risk of getting and transmitting Covid than the vaccinated? No.
    In what way did he undermine the health and wellness of others? He didn’t.

    ——–
    He responded “YEAH, I’m immunized” The word Yeah is a synonym for YES.

  24. Rodgers put his team, his organization and others he encountered in “Jeopardy”

    We should not “discount” but rather, “double check” his vaccine status.

    Can anyone tell me where Joe Rogan went to medical school?

    ——————

    What medical school did Mike Florio go to? Which one did you go to? I’ve been listening to the doctors, and the one doctor, Fauci said, masked don’t work, then he said wear a mask, the he said wear two masks, then he said you won’t have to wear a mask when we get a vaccine, then he said you have to wear a mask even if vaccinated, then he said he didn’t fund the gain of function research which started all this, then it came out he did fund the gain of function research, then he said vaccines work, then he said the unvaccinated can infect the vaccinated even though he said vaccine prevents the vaccinated from being infected. Which doctor from which medical school do you listen to?

  26. Jeez you tough football fans are so soft getting your feeling hurt all the time, yes you are part of the woke mob and cancel culture. Pathetic

  27. Why didn’t he mention his allergies before? He said he was immunized. I’d like to hear his Dr say he’s allergic , can no longer take him at his word.

  28. “This time around, Aaron’s personal twist undermined the heath and wellness of the communities Prevea serves.”

    Said like someone who believes the vaccines-that-aren’t-really-vaccines actually work.

  29. I really hope that the Packers fans let Aaron know how they feel at their next home game. Would love to see this clown’s face as he has to hear the anger that I’m sure a lot of people are feeling for his being a selfish liar.

    Cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

    It’s a shame everyone wasn’t mandated by Trump to wear a mask starting in March of 2020. This thing would be under control and life would be close to normal. I have no problem whatsoever following the advice of scientific experts, even with guidelines evolving as we go. The only people with issues are hiding behind “freedom.” What a crock. If Trump had told everyone to get vaccinated, his followers would be fighting to be first in-line. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re the problem.

  31. And to all the sheeple that are okay with the vaccines and the endless boosters..

    You’re just what the Pharmaceutical Industrial Machine was hoping for. Keep those chins up while you still can.

  32. Imagine what the discussion on the vax and the mandates and masking, et al, would be if the Republican Candidate had been re-elected.

    It’s still not lying . He answered the question, while not answering what was asked .
    It should have been followed by a follow up to answer the question .

    When the CDC has to change the definition of what a Vaccine is , in order to qualify the current vaccines as a vaccine ….is it really a vaccine ?

    There is a reason why Rodgers is free and clear of all testing now for the next 3 months and reason why he now has more freedom then those who are actually vaccinated …
    Let that sink in.

  34. More trouble for Aaron, according to The Big Lead:

    “According to the NFL’s rules laid out in June for unvaccinated players, those who do not receive the vaccine cannot participate in endorsement opportunities of any kind during the season. State Farm released a new commercial with Rodgers in early October, riffing off his brief tenure as the Jeopardy! host over the summer.”

    Was he anymore of a risk of getting and transmitting Covid than the vaccinated? No.
    In what way did he undermine the health and wellness of others? He didn’t.

    The answer to the first question is correct. The medical professionals who make the rules do not agree with your answer to the last two

  36. Prevea is a health care organization. Aaron Rogers lied and is currently saying things that virtually all physicians view as incorrect and disingenuous. They were totally justified in cutting ties with him. Bravo Prevea!

  37. Y’all are hilarious. I see a ton of the woke mob is on here crying. Prevea sucks and good for him for not getting the shot just to appease you.

  38. To those commenting that they respect/admire Favre more than Rodgers – Favre just repaid the State of Mississippi $600,000 for fraud – he collected welfare funds for speeches he never gave.
    And let’s not forget Favre sending explicit photos and texts to a Jets employee while he was there. Another stand-up Packers QB. Thank God for Bart Starr.

  39. The woke mob didnt “Cancel” Josh Allen, Carson Wentz, Kirk Cousins. Its fine that he didnt get the shot, but dont lie about it and follow the NFL rules.

    People are mad because he lied about it and has been breaking NFL rules all season. He deserves a game suspension for each week he violated the protocols.

  40. If the NFL were like these comments, Rodgers would be suspended for the rest of the season.

    And PH just proved his point of cancel culture. A bunch of tweeters and screamers got what they wanted and PH lost a advocate with higher name recognition and popularity in Wisconsin than most of the elected leadership there.

    Kudos.

  41. By the way, it is not Cancel Culture, but rather Consequence Culture. He broke the rules and lied or misled. If you are a stupid Anti-Vaxxer… good for you. Be proud of your ignorance. I respect your decision, but if suffer the backlash that is on you.

  42. If you date a woman and then ask her if she’s on the pill and she replies that “yeah, I’ve taken pills”, she is misleading you. This is no difference than Rodgers wordplay and misleading statement that most agree is a bold-face lie. It’s not about whether or not he’s vaccinated, it’s about acting as if he is and putting others at risk. No matter how great he may be on the field, most people agree that he’s an arrogant, selfish liar.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    He’s NOT immunized. He said he was, but he’s NOT. He knew it too. How is this not lying? What Trumpian logic and “alternative facts” apply here?

  44. Clearly, Rodgers is on the side of the anti science/anti-medicine lunatics and he doesn’t have the guts to admit it.

  45. I get that some people disliked Brett Favre, but the man was a consummate competitor. He gave his team his all. Aaron Rodgers is a fantastic QB, however, no one would ever say he has given his all for anybody but himself.

    The same Favre who just got cornered into paying back PART of a Mississippi welfare fund he bilked?

    Lifelong Packer fan over 50 years—I’m ashamed of both #4 & #12.

    #15 is the HOF QB who kept his integrity.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    You sound like a socialist.

  48. I’m honestly confused how anybody can look at this situation and not understand that the healthcare provider had an obligation to distance themselves from Rodgers. They can’t be seen with a guy who is spreading misinformation. About the virus to his very larger audience. The physicians that work there have an oath to “Do No Harm”. This isn’t a grey area. All medical evidence supports vaccinations as being the best tool to eradicate the disease. That’s why none of you in this conversation have had smallpox or polio. There’s no room for a “personal twist” when it comes to public health.

  49. Who really cares? This isn’t going to cost me a dime. I don’t care who is or isn’t vaccinated. I feel that is a personal choice you make for yourself. If he had the vaccine and got Covid he still wouldn’t play this weekend.

  50. Ah, so our leaders can lie to us for years about how many people we need immunized for herd immunity, that we all need masks while they can dine and party without masks as much as they want, and even if the vaccines actually make you immune or not. But one football player lies back to them and everyone loses their minds.

    Happily canceled all my State Farm policies
    today!

    Lie much?

  52. Don’t know why the anti-vax crowd is jumping on A-Arons bandwagon. The scum ball lied to YOU. How many folks teetering on the edge took the vaccine because he implied that he had gotten it? How many now and infertile , bear the mark of the devil or have Bill Gate’s chips floating around in their blood because A-Aron lied?

    If anything, you should be shunning this guy for not manning up and saying he wasn’t vaxxed and wasn’t gonna get vaxxed. He played you for fools.

  53. This is just the beginning. He’s shown himself not be trust worthy and manipulative but the real punchline here is what he said about the summertime drama involving the Packers… “It’s just about a philosophy and maybe forgetting that it is about the people that make the thing go. It’s about character, it’s about culture, it’s about doing things the right way”

    Uh-huh, right.

    We locked down the entire country in March of 2020, don’t you remember that? And the virus was not stopped. So the premise of your comment is false. The fact that you evoked Trump means you are politicizing science and medical decisions which is very dangerous. Remember how Joe Biden and Kamala Harris said they would never take the vaccine if Trump produced it and now they are promoting the same vaccines that Trump helped produced. I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I believe these vaccines are good things. People should get vaccinated I also think it should be an individual decision like all of our medical decisions should be. Too bad the lies and hypocrisy of the people is the White House hace created so much distrust in the vaccines.

    Ccccccccccc

    If you owned a company, and that woman worked for you, could you tell her she had to be on the pill or be fired because maternity leave would cost your company too much money? Of course not, that would be a multi-million dollar lawsuit.

  59. It’s interesting that there is greater outrage over Aaron Rodgers lying about his vaccination status than Dr Fauci lying about not finding the gain of function research which created this virus

  60. It’s a shame everyone wasn’t mandated by Trump to wear a mask starting in March of 2020. This thing would be under control and life would be close to normal.

    Right, because masks are so highly effective. The only thing your mask does is virtue signal your blind allegiance and compliance. Remember last year when all of your democrat idols were refusing the jab because of Trump?

  61. I do love seeing Rodgers become everyone’s punchline all most as much as it’s fun to see all the sheep walk into the woods.

  62. I’ve never cared for Rodgers, he came across and an arrogant ahole but one thing is clear, he was absolutely right. There are plenty in the medical field that have dissented about the virus and the vaccine itself, the real problem is nearly every single one of them has been silenced/censored from speaking about it. In turn, you get the “the science is settled” crowd.

  63. We’ll if they want to be like that, why is any health care related entity endorsing anything football related with the concussions, the Theisman ankles etc? So they drop him because he didn’t take his medicine boo hoo…

  64. No way I’m putting that synthetic lab produced stuff in my body! … Hey Rodgers, you have COVID. Quick, give me those synthetic lab produced monoclonal antibodies!!! These are the morons we are dealing with.

    1) Neither Biden nor Harris ever said they would not take the vaccine if Trump produced it. Never happened. They only said they wouldn’t ever give him credit. Me either.
    2) I didn’t say it would be stopped if Trump had gotten involved sooner. I said it would be under control by now, and it would be. He convinced his sheep not to trust science, so they don’t. He could tell them anything and they’d believe it, including “the Russians aren’t so bad!”
    3) The only people politicizing this tragedy is the misguided “patriots” refusing in the name of “freedom.” It sounds even stupider the second time.

  68. This isn’t something that was found in a private email conversation that took place eleven years ago. This was recent, and was out in public. This is much worse than what happened with Jon Gruden. My bet is Rodgers announces his retirement this week.

  69. State Farm is discount double checking their contract with Rodgers
    right now…..
    ———————
    I think his premiums just went up

  70. And SNL and Rogers started a new comedy partnership last night. The pandemic of the unvaccinated goes on!

  71. The bottom line is he lied. He flat out, blatantly lied when asked if he was vaccinated. That’s not okay.
