Fauci Slams Joe Rogan For Saying Young, Healthy People Don’t Need Covid Vaccines

Joe Rogan has been facing a backlash on social media after saying he would not recommend that young, healthy people get Covid-19 vaccines.

The podcaster was even targeted by two White House officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, who blasted his comments as “incorrect”. Fauci said that young people “absolutely” should get vaccinated. 

Rogan started trending on social media on Tuesday after a recent clip from his podcast, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience,’ prompted critics to accuse him of spreading Covid-19 disinformation, even though he said getting vaccinated is “safe” for most people.

RT reports: During a Wednesday appearance on ‘The Today Show,’ Fauci was asked about Rogan’s comments, which received heavy backlash on social media after a clip from Rogan’s podcast went viral on Twitter.

“You’re talking about yourself in a vacuum,” Fauci said of Rogan. “You’re worried about yourself getting infected and the likelihood that you’re not going to get any symptoms. But you can get infected, and will get infected, if you put yourself at risk.”

The infectious disease expert argued that younger, healthier people can have the virus and be asymptomatic, but still help spread Covid-19 to others. 

“So if you want to only worry about yourself and not society, then that’s okay,” he said. “But if you’re saying to yourself, even if I get infected, I could do damage to somebody else even if I have no symptoms at all, and that’s the reason why you’ve got to be careful and get vaccinated.”

Fauci added that young people should “absolutely” get vaccinated. 

In a separate CNN interview, Fauci again blasted Rogan, saying the former ‘Fear Factor’ host was not considering “societal responsibilities” with his take on vaccines. 

During Rogan’s chat on the vaccine, he argued that if a healthy 21-year-old with no health issues asked if he would recommend getting the vaccine, he would tell them no, adding that they are low-risk and have stronger immune systems. 

The Spotify podcaster also called people pushing for children to be vaccinated “crazy,” revealing his own two children had Covid-19 and “it was nothing.”

On Wednesday, Fauci argued “kids of any age” will “likely be vaccinated” by the end of the year, despite the fact that only those older than 16 are eligible for a jab. 

White House communications director Kate Bedingfield also made a point of blasting Rogan’s comments during a CNN interview.

“I guess my first question would be, did Joe Rogan become a medical doctor while we weren’t looking?” she asked. “I’m not sure that taking scientific and medical advice from Joe Rogan is perhaps the most productive way for people to get their information.”

While Rogan’s comments earned plenty of criticism this week, many jumped to the star’s defense after Fauci’s comments, arguing the health official was missing Rogan’s point by focusing on the risk of the virus being transmitted.

“Actually, he’s saying that Joe Rogan is basically correct. Joe argued that if you are worried about getting covid at 21, if you exercise a lot and are generally healthy, you really shouldn’t be,” conservative pundit Ben Shapiro tweeted in reaction. “He didn’t have anything to say about transmission to others.”


  1. Pay per view… Fauci vs. Rogan to the death. Wouldnt that be fun? Seeing a worthless lifelong bureacrat demon beaten tot a bloody pulp.

  2. There is no such thing as covid19. Too bad that everyone is afraid of catching something like a cold or flu virus. That is what it is.

    • Actually its like rhe nqzis. Aids ,which I’m sure was made bt scientists targeted ,was used to target Africans and gays and they only got alarmed when it targeted them They didnt realize how many heteros practices vigorous sex and anal sex .This covid targets the old and excess to demand burdens on society All of the nazis targets ,the blacks the gays the sick and the weak ,the poor And the vaccine kills and damages and so the most vaccinated nation is Israel .Bormans family, so silent ,so private so rich so powerful is most likely about 3 or 4 hundred family members now with his ten kids all married with kids ,and them married with kids and even some of them married with great grand kids now yoo Plus alm of the in laws who married into the incredibly rich Borman family .Hundreds and hundreds of rich powerful private people all over the world And totally secret .

  3. Rogan can actually read, therefore, he’s smarter than Fraudci at every angle of this FAKE PLANDEMIC BS.

  4. Every dr and nurse who has stood silently by watching people wearing surgical masks which they all know do not protect from viruses needs to be held accountable for their disgusting filthy deceits All of them in it together And every poli who knew k iws is guilty of fraid and deceit ,lying misleading deceiving we the people and all of them for financial gain .

  5. Faucis full of it So compliant So obedient to his masters voice. It’s like msm now all banging on their crap about India being the covud hotspot Let’s see the facts Let’s see the average death rate of India per day pre the ” news stories ” and post And the real figures ,nit the new fudge ones With that population hundreds would be dying every day ,possibly thousands just normally .Watch them twist those deaths into a covid pandemic fabrication ALL OF THEM.

  6. Its the same all over the western world .They commit the crimes They lie steal murder Them the ” well respected members of the community ” They always are the real.guilty parties They frame people They perjury themselves They deceive the public Its all a con job and has bern for centuries too .All of ,all the ” history ” all lies manipulations distortions fabrications Everything They hate the truth .They set up the serial killers they set up the ” lone wolves ” .I could give you a thousand examples of proof ,enough to fill a book ,but no one would be allowed to publish it .That’s how they get away with everything .

  7. Fauci is a puppet and a liar. He has lost all credibility with anyone who has been paying attention to both his actions and words. His background in the USPTO should have been a huge red flag for everyone in America. Read any of his published works from early 2000s and you will see how directly tied into this SARs program he actually is. He flat out lied about mask efficacy and continues to do so. And if anyone was asleep like Ted Cruz at Xiden’s BS address, here is all you need to know…” On Wednesday, Fauci argued “kids of any age” will “likely be vaccinated” by the end of the year, despite the fact that only those older than 16 are eligible for a jab.” This mRNA sh_t is not a “Vaccine,” it is forcing your immune system to respond to something in a very specific way. Lastly, EVERY SINGLE INDICATOR shows this is going to be mandatory, not voluntary, for everyone on the planet. This is not Polio, or Ebola and this “jab” is NOT A VACCINE; keep that in mind before you allow someone to inject you and your children. The only question I ask myself is “When have I ever seen such propaganda, and incentives, including financial incentives, given to a population to take a “vaccine” that is supposed to save my life from a deadly disease?” NEVER!
