Aaron Rodgers’ vaccine stance has cost him at least one longtime sponsor.

In a joint statement, Wisconsin-based health care organization Prevea Health said it would end its relationship with the Green Bay Packers quarterback. Rodgers has been a spokesperson for the organization since 2012.

While no explicit reason was given, Prevea’s statement pointedly says the group remains committed to “encouraging and helping all eligible populations to become vaccinated against COVID-19.”

The announcement comes one day after Rodgers did a lengthy interview on “The Pat McAfee Show” explaining his decision not to get vaccinated, criticizing a “woke mob” for going after his vaccination status. Rodgers also made a number of statements that are counter to the mainstream views regarding COVID-19 and the COVID-19 vaccine. His comments were enough to make a partnership with a health care organization that actively promotes vaccination an untenable one.
