‘I do not even think I can get into the country. I’m not vaccinated. I will not be vaccinated. I have antibodies, it makes no sense ‘
A vaccine mandate has forced Joe Rogan to reschedule an upcoming sold-out show in Vancouver,
British Columbia limited venues by more than 1,000 people to 50 percent on Dec. 17. The province requires a federal or provincial proof of vaccination to gain access to indoor events and businesses.
In April, the 54-year-old UFC reporter, who is against a COVID vaccine mandate but believes they are “mostly … sure”, said he is unvaccinated.
“I do not even think I can enter the country. I’m not vaccinated. I will not be vaccinated. I have antibodies, it makes no sense. “
In a video posted on his Instagram in early September, Rogan told his 13.1 million followers that he had tested positive for COVID after feeling “very tired.”
He said after the diagnosis that he “immediately threw the kitchen sink after it,” including taking antibiotics, monoclonal antibodies, a vitamin drip and ivermectin.
Ivermectin, a drug first discovered in 1975 as a treatment for parasitic infections in domestic animals and pets, has been used in humans to treat parasitic worms, head lice and skin diseases.
A number of clinical trials have shown that ivermectin is ineffective in treating coronavirus.
In a recent interview with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta questioned Rogan whether those who have previously had COVID and received natural antibodies from it should still be vaccinated.
Gupta cited a study published this summer that found that 40 percent of recovered COVID-19 patients did not have antibodies.
Rogan’s Vancouver show has been moved to October 24, according to his Facebook page.
