Joe rogan now insists that it is not an anti-vaccine after previously encouraging young and healthy people not to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus on his podcast. As you can imagine, many were outraged by such a damaging speech, especially since Rogan’s podcast is the most popular on Spotify and thus reaches many.
This comes after he insisted that young people shouldn’t worry about the vaccine at all.

As a result of the violent reaction and after some even demanded that he be fired, Rogan argued that ‘I am not a doctor, I am a fucking idiot’. I’m not a respected source of information, not even to myself … But at least I’m trying to be honest with what I’m saying. I am not an anti-vax person. In fact I said, I think they are safe and I encourage many to take them. My parents were vaccinated. I just said, ‘I don’t think if you’re a young, healthy person, you really need it.’ His argument was simply ‘You need it for other people’ … but that’s a different argument. ‘
The man defended his position, although it is safe to say that most of his critics will not be happy with that explanation.

After all, the COVID-19 pandemic has always been about both the individual and everyone else, as it is contagious.
Regarding his previous comment, he said in part that ‘If you are 21 years old and you like it,’ should I get vaccinated? ‘ I say no. Are you a healthy person? ”
This is especially damaging as NPR reports that hospitalization of young adults who test positive for the virus has increased by 40% since March!
‘Look, don’t do anything stupid, but you really should take care of yourself. If you are a healthy person and you exercise all the time, and you are young, you are eating well, I do not think you should worry about this, ” Rogan said during her previous podcast episode.
