Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores recently said that COVID-19 vaccination statuses will not be considered when the team decides which players make the final roster.

Each organization seems to be taking a different approach when it comes to vaccinations.

Teams will higher vaccination rates undoubtedly gain a competitive advantage. For one, higher vaccination rates decrease the chances of a team having to forfeit games. Plus, protocols are slightly relaxed for vaccinated players.

Some folks around the league have grown frustrated with the fact that many players are choosing to remain unvaccinated. It has been a very controversial topic throughout the offseason.

The Dolphins, like every other team, will have to hope that the virus does not impact the 2021 season to an extreme degree. Although COVID-19 cases are rising in many states, this season will hopefully be an improvement over last year’s circumstances regarding the virus.
