Buffalo Bill’s wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie receives the COVID-19 vaccine after being fined for not wearing a mask.
Buffalo Bills has been at the center of the COFLID-19 vaccine topic in the NFL. Earlier this week, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie shared a letter he received from the league, which included a $ 14,650 fine for not wearing a mask at the team facility as an unvaccinated individual.
On Saturday, before Buffalo’s final of the preseason against the Green Bay Packers, McKenzie revealed on his Instagram account that he has received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. He posted a video of himself holding his COVID-19 vaccination card with a caption, “for the better.”

McKenzie shared the league letter earlier this week in which he wrote “you got me, @NFL you win.”
The broad recipient Cole Beasley, who has been openly opposed to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, shared her thoughts by quoting the tweet of McKenzie’s message. He cried that he was considered a close contact between a fully vaccinated employee who tested positive for COVID and sent home before saying he did not understand the purpose of wearing a mask.
In addition to Beasley, Gabriel Davis, Matt Milano and AJ Klein were also sent home for five days after being considered close contacts.
NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported that after receiving a fine from the league, McKenzie was subject to increased discipline if he were to have a repeat offense. These penalties can range from a fine of one week’s salary or a suspension for four matches.
McKenzie thought things over and decided to get the COVID-19 vaccine for the better.
