The Today Show reports:
Dr. Anthony Fauci says popular podcast host Joe Rogan is “incorrect” in recently saying he would advise healthy young people against getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Well that’s incorrect, and the reason why is you’re talking about yourself in a vacuum then,” Fauci told Savannah Guthrie. “You’re worried about yourself getting infected and the likelihood that you’re not gonna get any symptoms.
“But you can get infected and will get infected if you put yourself at risk. And even if you don’t have any symptoms, you’re propagating the outbreak because it is likely that you — even if you have no symptoms — that you may inadvertently and innocently then infect someone else who might infect someone who really could have a problem with a severe outcome.”

Joe Rogan’s influence has fallen since moving to Spotify and his search traffic dropped 40%, now he’s advocating for young people to become super-spreaders of every known COVID variant, while people in other countries who actually want the vaccine have to wait till 2022.
