Dylan Larkin dangles through the vaccination issue while speaking with The Athletic

This is quite the dangle, per The Athletic’s Ryan S. Clark, Mark Lazerus and Josh Kloke at the NHL Media Tour in Chicago:

Detroit Red Wings captain and center Dylan Larkin said he got “peace of mind” by getting the shot. But he measured his words carefully on the topic, repeatedly saying “it’s your own beliefs” that matters most regarding the vaccine. But after saying “I don’t mean to be disrespectful,” he added, “but you can read into it how I’m saying it.”

“In our league right now, there’s no mandatory rule,” Larkin said. “To me, I’m very sensitive to who I talk to or how you talk to someone about it. It’s your belief. It’s what you want to do. So yeah, there’s conversation (about) it in the locker room. And if there’s someone that strongly believes that they don’t want to get it, in my opinion, that’s their right.”

Continued; for once, I disagree with the captain, but I got the shot early because I have an aunt who is immune-compromised, and I believe we have a duty to protect everyone for whom the shot is unavailable or ineffective.

  1. I also disagree, these non Vaxxers are giving the virus to the under age 12 group. It appears the vaccine is not yet approved for that young gruop. This is not a personal choice, whether to take the vaccine or not, LIVES are not part of any personal choice.

    Selfish and maybe ill informed.

    Mandate it to those who can take it.

    Now we are in the 4th Wave, it will never end with those not taking the vaccine.

    In Canada, they will not be getting into NHL, restaurants, many many events without proof of Vaccination.
