Royals' Whit Merrifield Apologizes for 'Poorly Articulated' Vaccine Comments


Before the All-Star break, Royals slugger Whit Merrifield rather stridently stated his case that he would not get vaccinated because the vaccine did not appear to be “stopping the spread of COVID.”

After the All-Star break, he’s saying something else.

Merrifield’s unvaccinated status prevented him from making the Royals’ road trip to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays before the break. At the time, the outfielder and 2nd basemen characterized his stance thusly: “If it was doing what it was supposed to do and stopping the spread of COVID, [then] I would have a little more willingness to take it, but it’s not doing that.”
