Bill Maher: ‘This Is Why I’m NEVER Getting a Booster Shot’

Fact checked
Bill Maher explains why he will never get the booster shot

Television host Bill Maher has spoken out against the Covid-19 booster shots, and has revealed the reason he will never get one, despite being twice vaccinated himself.

During an interview with Deadline, Maher revealed that Covid jabs “do not prevent you from either transmitting it or getting the disease. We know that. That’s a fact now. They just prevent you from dying, which is a great part of it, let’s not undercount that. But if they don’t prevent you from transmitting it and they don’t prevent you from getting it why are we still treating this disease the way we always have? And what the f*[**] is the use of a booster shot? Because I will never get a booster shot.”

“It’s not only useless, but this is a very, very new vaccine. Okay, I didn’t want the first vaccine. We should not treat people unfairly who want to allow their own immune system to take care of the situation. But okay, I took one for the team. Now, they’re giving a fourth one in Israel with the booster shots. Now, this I read in the front page of the New York Times, which is a very pro-vaccine publication, and even they printed that many scientists in Israel were against this, scientists and doctors, because they said it might have a reverse effect, something called immune system fatigue,” Maher pointed out.

“Well, I don’t want that, do you? So, now you’re not protected by the vaccine or your immune system? I don’t think so,” he added. reports: He told Deadline that he’s “over COVID” and said that he never believed it represented a significant threat to healthy people.

“I was never scared of it. I was always scared of the reaction to it, and as this has played out that only proved to be more true for me. I’m sure many people feel different, but that’s me. It was never that virulent a threat, I thought, to people who were in good health,” he noted.

Maher, who hosts HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” has previously said that he does not want to get a booster shot, and that although he never even wanted to get vaccinated he “took one for the team.”


  1. I told people at the start of this that if they agreed to one shot then they’d have to agree to as many as demanded or be an “anti-vaxer”. Looks like Bill Maher is an antivaxer now.

    • And yet people get flu booster shots every year without so much as a ruffle from the far-right clarion shills.

      But I guess it’s harder to use something so boring as flu for a political football, isn’t it?

      Ever get the feeling your being played by your far-right overlords, Nick?

      • What?!? I understand that anything right of Jimmy Carter is seen as Far Right by you Marxists but you need to stop listening to Don Lemon and wake the hell up.

        • A genuine follow-up question for you, Nick (and I can assure you I’m not being “troll”y or anything by this)… I’m genuinely interested. I’m doing some meta research of political perceptions on social media for a book…

          How would you classify your own position on the political spectrum?

          For instance, who would you deem to be to the “left” of you, and then who would you deem to be politically to the “right” of you?

          • I am an Anarcho Capitalist – a free market Anarchist. That said, you can’t be “political” and be on the “right” here in the United States. I can’t think of a single politician in the USA that fits the definition. Not one.

          • Thanks Nick. Actually a really good answer, even if I don’t fully agree with you. (I like the “Anarcho” part, though).

            Just wondering, if you “can’t think of a single politician” who is “right”, how would you classify Glenn Grothman,
            Bryan Steil, Mike Gallagher and Mike Pence?

          • I’d classify them as Statists. BTW, just as with all ideologies, Anarchy has its Left and Right components. You have Anarcho-syndicalists which is really a fancy term for “Communist” (remember, the State vanishes, private property vanishes and the people just magically somehow own everything) and you have the Anarcho-Capitalists that believe in private property and free trade between consenting individuals.

            If you like the Anarcho part but not the Capitalist part then you are, by definition a Communist. No way around it.

          • So be it.

            However, I regard our actions as more important than our labels.

            If my views coincide with communism, I guess that’s where I stand (although, personally, libertarian socialist would be more the flavour I taste). I do love Bernie S.

            However, our actions are what truly define us, and I’d regard my life as an educator and as a writer following in steps of my beautiful civil rights agitating parents as a life productively lived.

            Thanks again for the discussion, Nick. I regard shared stories and open armed connection as the only way to heal our troubled nation. Discussions like this are the way forward.

            Good bless and farewell, friend
