Though the Washington Post reported last week that the Jacksonville Jaguars were lagging behind many other NFL teams in terms of rate of vaccination for COVID-19, it seems that’s now changing. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Jacksonville saw a major boost in vaccines following the conclusion of minicamp (though Fowler called it training camp).

It seems this was a response to the memo sent to NFL players that detailed the restrictions unvaccinated players will face, including daily testing, separation from vaccinated teammates during meals, and lack of access to facilities as well as being restricted to the team hotel during travel.

Coach Urban Meyer also said earlier this month that several coaches received the vaccine after the league announced its restrictions for unvaccinated coaches and personnel.

Though the Jags still aren’t among the best clubs in terms of vaccination rate, the spike that Fowler is talking about will hopefully lead to fewer players facing COVID-19 limitations during the 2021 season.
