NEW YORK, Oct 14 — Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving says he’s “doing what’s best for me” in declining a Covid-19 vaccine, a move that will see him sidelined from NBA play.

Irving addressed the issue on Instagram Live on Wednesday, confirming that he hoped to be back on the floor with teammates eventually.

But he said he would not bow to pressure to be vaccinated, while insisting he was neither anti- nor pro-vaccines.
