“I’ve lost family members too and it’s a slippery slope,” he said. “So, what I say to everybody else, outside of just speaking on it — Man, just get educated. I’m not telling you, forcing you or pushing you to go get vaccinated, I’m just telling you to make a family decision. Talk to your family. Get educated on it and make the right decision.”
