Why did Joe Rogan tell young people not to get vaccinated?
- Joe Rogan announced in his most recent “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast that young, healthy people don’t need to worry about getting vaccinated.
Joe also didn’t understand people who want their children vaccinated as his children, who had COVID-19, had mild cases. Joe and fellow comedian Dave Smith discussed getting vaccinated and were shocked at how “anti-vaxxers” were controversial:
“It’s amazing that that’s controversial. That even saying that ‘I’m not going to inject my child with a vaccine’ is controversial. We’re not talking about even the flu, which we just found out killed 22,000 people last year. We’re not talking about that. We’re talking about something that is not statistically dangerous for children.”
On the other hand, Joe did think vulnerable people should get vaccinated as he thinks for the most part it is safe to get vaccinated: “I think you should get vaccinated if you’re vulnerable,” the podcast host shares. “I think you should get vaccinated if you feel like – my parents are vaccinated. I’ve encouraged a lot of people to get – and people say, do you think it’s safe to get vaccinated? I’ve said, ‘Yeah, I think for the most part it’s safe to get vaccinated.’ I do. I do.”
He continued: “But if you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, should I get vaccinated? I’ll go ‘No.’ Are you healthy? Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself,” Rogan noted. “You should – if you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
