Marc Gasol doesn’t want NBA players to have preferential treatment when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination.

Gasol said there are people who are more at risk and need the vaccine first before the NBA players.

“There are people right now that need the vaccine more than what we do. We are very fortunate to be in a very safe environment. Statistically, the virus doesn’t affect a 35-year-old male as much as it affects other people that are more at risk and more vulnerable to the virus.

I would prefer the vaccine goes to people that need it the most instead of us. That to me is just common sense,” Gasol said, via USA Today.

COVID-19 vaccination started earlier this week in the United States.
