Dallas Mavericks’ guard Trey Burke made headlines earlier this week for vocalizing his aversion to COVID-19 vaccines.
Now, he’s doubling down on his vaccination status, saying it’s a “personal choice,” via reporter Mike Doocy of Fox.
The Mavericks are requiring fans to present a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination prior to entering the American Airlines Center, per Mavs’ PR.
Through eight seasons in the league, Burke has averaged 10.0 points, 3.2 assists, and 1.9 rebounds on 41% shooting from the field.
The Mavericks reportedly tried to trade Burke – but found no suitors, per Marc Stein.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing complications from coronavirus infection, per the CDC.
