ESPN reporter Allison Williams will not cover the college football season because she does not want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Williams announced her decision in a statement posted to Twitter.

“I have decided not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at this time while my husband and I try for a second child,” she wrote. “This was a deeply difficult decision to make, and it’s not something I take lightly.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that pregnant women or women who might become pregnant in the future receive the COVID-19 vaccine. According to The Hill, no evidence links the vaccine with fertility issues.

In July, ESPN’s parent company, Walt Disney, said that all employees must be vaccinated by Sept. 30.
