In this day and age, a whole host of sports stars have acquired the COVID-19 vaccine, but for some, they have simply refused the current situation.
For former Widnes Vikings, Wakefield Trinity and Crusaders RL forward Frank Winterstein, that is exactly true.
The 34-year-old – who last played for Toulouse Olympique in the Championship – has been a vociferous opponent of the COVID problem and has previously torn up his gym membership following its safety practices surrounding the virus.
And, now him and his partner are engaging in major moves against the vaccination, setting up a charity ‘to build this medical freedom community’ in opposition to aboriginal people getting the jab.
Winterstein wrote: “Extremely proud of my wife @tays_way__ (tays_way_ her main account censored) & the team at @freedomkeepers_aus for all the thankless hours they put in to build this medical freedom community & directly help families across this country who need it most … especially our First Nations brothers & sisters !! Please go & support this cause !!
“We acknowledge the original sovereigns of this land, the First Nations people.
“We acknowledge that this is and always will be indigenous land as sovereignty has never been ceded.
“We acknowledge the cry for help, the families in need and we are here to offer a solution.”
It’s the latest move in a number of high-profile stars speaking out against the vaccination.
