Wiggins replied to the reporter on the 27th that he refused to get the vaccine: “It’s not your business, it’s my personal business, not your business. Anything related to my identity and vaccines will be kept confidential. I will disclose to you publicly, because these are my personal matters, I need to continue to fight for my beliefs. I think my beliefs are right, which is the right thing for one person, and maybe it is wrong for another person, and vice versa. Likewise, what you think is right is wrong if you look at it again.”

Players who have not been vaccinated must obtain a religious or medical exemption before they can appear in a home game.

“Fox Sports” revealed that any player who refuses to be vaccinated will miss all 41 home games of the team unless one of the above approved exemptions is obtained. The NBA said on Friday that they have “reviewed and rejected” Wiggins’ request for religious exemption, and he will not be able to play at home with the Warriors until he completes the vaccination mission.

United Airlines said that in addition to these 593 employees, about 3% or 2,000 employees have applied for exemptions from the company for vaccination on the grounds of health or religious beliefs.
