Some NBA players are reluctant to promote coronavirus vaccines.
Not Jusuf Nurkic.
Good for Nurkic. The vaccines are our most direct ticket back to normal life. They should be celebrated for the grand achievement that they are.
Though skepticism is understandable, the vaccines are safe and effective. Not only does a vaccine protect the person injected, but it also protects those around them. The coronavirus is a very real threat that has cost more than half-a-million American lives. Vaccines neutralize it.
Hopefully, more people use their influence to promote vaccinations. And hopefully, more people become willing to get vaccinated. And hopefully more shots become available.
There’s still much left to be done.
But Nurkic is doing his part.
