NFL Network host Rich Eisen is urging people to remain vigilant about COVID-19 after testing positive for the coronavirus even though he's fully vaccinated. Eisen, 52, shared on his social media accounts that he is experiencing symptoms and is currently in the fourth day of quarantine. So, be careful if you’re vaccinated and, if you’re not vaccinated, don’t wait another second. Eisen told The Athletic in April ahead of the 2021 NFL draft that he had been fully vaccinated since mid-February. At least 48 percent of all adults in the United States are fully vaccinated, via the Times.
