International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness (IFBB) Pro athlete, Rosian Warrington, is opposed to taking a vaccine until it has been thoroughly tested and presents little to no side-effects.
According to the Figure Class athlete, she does not have a particularly high level of resistance to most medication and or vaccines.
“I am that side effects girl and in the list of side effects I usually have more than enough so to just jump onto a vaccine because I want to compete, no. It would have to be tried and tested for quite a while before I decide I am going to just sign up for it,” she said.
Warrington received some support from fellow pro athlete, Bernard Percival Jr, who said that although he has not done much research on the topic, he is somewhat skeptical about taking a vaccine that has been on the market for only a short period.
“That’s a touchy subject there for me but I have a lot of close friends who are more knowledgeable on it than I am and they are all 100 percent against it. I am not too researched on the topic but I can’t say I am looking forward to having a vaccine and taking a vaccine. I don’t know if I am open to it just yet, so I am still up in the air on that one — to be forced to take something that might have a lot of repercussions and that has only been around for a few months with no amount of testing being done. I am not really willing to risk my health and longevity just to go and do a show; it’s not in the cards for me,” he said.
The athletes, during a recent appearance on the Good Morning Jojo Sports Show, said the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted their ability to make a living from the sport.
