WFT head coach Ron Rivera says about half the team is vaccinated against COVID-19.
That’s a long way from the 85 percent threshold NFL teams must meet to conduct regular, pre-COVID meetings and practices in 2021.
The Post’s Nicki Jhabvala reports Rivera brought in a “vaccine expert” to talk to the team about the COVID-19 vaccine.
“There’s a lot of messaging out there that they get off Twitter, and some of it’s good and some of it’s bad,” Rivera said. “If we could get herd immunity, we could really cut it loose.”
Teams that reach the 85 percent vaccination mark and can return to normal practices will have a clear edge on teams that don’t this season.
