Editor’s Note: While it is true that the updated Pfizer COVID vaccine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September 2023 without undergoing clinical trials, it was derived from the original Pfizer COVID shots that did have a clinical trial of 40,000+ people published three years earlier. FDA commissioner Robert Califf wrote on X in August 2022 that this is similar to what is done with the annual flu shots, saying: “modifying a vaccine to include different virus strains often does not require a change in other ingredients. FDA has extensive experience with reviewing strain changes in vaccines, as is done with the annual flu vaccine.”

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers has playfully called Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce “Mr. Pfizer” due to Kelce being a spokesperson for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Kelce responded with understanding, acknowledging Rodgers’ injury and expressing support.

“Aaron’s always been cool to me,” Kelce revealed.

“I knew he was trying to have some fun,” he added.

“He’s in a situation where Tuesdays are his game days… So I get it, man, I’ve been injured too… Who knows what the guy is going through?” expressed Kelce.

Kelce said, “I didn’t shoot him a text or anything like that (when he got hurt) so just wanted to go up to him and tell him how excited I was and how bummed out we were he got banged up and needed to get surgery.”

“You hate to see the great ones go down with injury,” he lamented.

“I went up to him to tell him we were all hurting for him and hopefully he gets healthy quickly,” recalled Kelce.

Rodgers, who is recovering from an Achilles injury, is aiming for a return to practice near Week 16.
