Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience, the podcast host is telling “young, healthy” people not to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as Rogan spoke with comedian Dave Smith.
“I think you should get vaccinated if you’re vulnerable,” the host stated on the April 23rd episode of his podcast as quoted by Complex.
“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.”
However, when it comes to young people, Rogan believes that the COVID vaccine isn’t something that this generation “doesn’t need to worry about”.
“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 adds. “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.”
