Shailene Woodley has been enjoying her engagement to American football star Aaron Rodgers, tweeting about the couple’s plans to get married, but the actress tweeted a cryptic message Thursday after the Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed he is not vaccinated against polio, hepatitis B or diphtheria.

On Thursday, the social media star tweeted a photo of her hand with her diamond engagement ring out of the frame. “It doesn’t get much more ‘included’ than this,” she said in the tweet. She then asked people to “come take a look” at the ring.

Rodgers made the comments during an interview with The Dan Patrick Show, where he discussed his interest in becoming an astronaut or a surgeon.

“I’m sure with my DNA, there’s things about a spinal cord or thoracic surgery that would excite me,” he said. “But it’s hard to say that there’s an area of interest for me in certain areas, because I’m a vaccinated person.”

Last year, Rodgers told Sports Illustrated he was “vaccinated for the flu and other very common things, but you have to wait a little while for the varicella [salmonella] vaccine, that’s a shot you need for a chicken pox-type thing,” the magazine reported.

The bioethicist who sat on the panel with Rodgers suggested on the show that Rodgers and the committee were misinformed about vaccinations, the website’s online version stated.

Woodley replied to Patrick’s tweet Thursday afternoon about her engagement and the discussion on vaccinations.

“More info on the link between vaccines and diseases I’ve never heard before!” she wrote.

Since hearing the remarks from Rodgers, Woodley has also retweeted one person who argued Rodgers’s opinions about vaccines “could be a problem.”

As for it all, Woodley did not respond to requests for comment.
