Horní Bezděkov (Kladensko) – Hockey forward Jaromír Jágr, according to information from the List of News, rejected an offer in June to become one of the faces of the government’s campaign to support vaccination against covid-19. According to the legendary player, he did so because he does not want to tell people what to do. They have the medical capacity to convince them.

“I think that vaccination is being discussed too much in the Czech Republic. And what is my opinion on it? I will keep it for myself,” Jágr told reporters at the Knights press conference before the approaching start of the extra-league season. “I’ve always thought I don’t want to tell people what to do. It’s every decision. I don’t want to advise anyone and everyone should make the decision they think is best for them,” he said.

According to the best Czech hockey player in history, athletes should not advise people on vaccinations. “We have experts here to comment on this, and I expected the doctoral elite to sit down and say the pros and cons of vaccination. Why should a hockey player who has been chasing a puck all his life comment?” “Nonsense. But that doesn’t mean I’m for or against vaccination. I just don’t want to say my opinion in order to influence anyone. Although I don’t believe it would happen,” Jagr said.

He added that he tries to approach other important topics in the same way. “I try not to advise anyone. I’ve already learned my lesson. When I said my opinion, it usually turned against me. I try to take care of my things,” Jagr said.
