NFL star McKenzie backs down and gets Covid vaccine just days after being hit with hefty fine

NFL star Isaiah McKenzie has received his first Covid-19 vaccination dose just two days after being fined by the league for violating protocols for unvaccinated players by not donning a mask inside his team's training facilities.

McKenzie, a wide receiver at the Buffalo Bills, posted a selfie to Instagram showing off his vaccination card yesterday, which indicated he has already received the first of two required jabs.

"For the greater good," he wrote as his caption.

On Thursday, McKenzie took to Twitter to write: "They got me! NFL you win!"

His post included a copy of a letter received from the league stating the 26-year-old violated Covid protocols.

In total, this was McKenzie's second violation after being issued a warning by the NFL a day before the New York state franchise opened their training camp for the upcoming season on July 27.

Administered a fine of $14,650, McKenzie allegedly failed to don a mask twice on Wednesday when walking into the fieldhouse to the trainer's room and in the weight room's meeting area.
