Dolphins tight end Adam Shaheen is standing his ground and refuses to get vaccinated despite the NFL’s new vax rules.
After being placed on the Covid-19 list by the Dolphins last week, Shaheen went on to put “I will not comply” and “Somewhere not wearing a mask” in his Twitter bio.

On Saturday Shaheen, who was taken off the Covid-19 list on August 5th, told the media that he was not going to allow the NFL to strong-arm him into getting the vaccine.

“In my opinion it shouldn’t be looked down upon when you do one thing or another. Same with the vaccine. It is your choice,” Adam Shaheen said, who said he did not have COVID-19.

This isn’t the first time Shaheen has made his stance on vaccine known. For the past month, the Dolphins tight end has retweeted tweets mocking the government’s Covid-19 response.
