Karl-Anthony Towns reacts to Kyrie Irving's decision to not get COVID-19 vaccination

"Obviously, I have a strong belief in the vaccine," Towns told NJ.com. "I've been through so much and it would be kind of contradicting not to be on the side of the vaccine advocates. But what I want to say is that I believe in the choice and I like people to choose and I have no problem with it." People have a choice. "

Towns added that he has not yet spoken to Irving about his vaccination status.
“I think that's not just a human right, it's an American right… They make their own decisions about their own bodies and their own families. I don't mind it, ”Towns continued. "The only thing I would say is just not give me an (explicit) apology as to why [you didn't get the vaccine] ... you don't want to do it, it's your choice."
