Fauci, the nation's top doctor, shut down the podcast host.
On one of Rogan's recent episodes of his Spotify podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience," he said young people, specifically healthy 21-year-olds, shouldn't get any of the vaccines. The host, who does not have a medical degree, claimed that "if you're a healthy person and you're exercising all the time and you're young and you're eating well, I don't think you need to worry about [COVID-19]."
In response, Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Biden's medical advisor who has been leading America's fight against COVID-19, spoke out publicly against Rogan's statements.
On the TODAY show, Fauci reacted to the podcast host's statement by saying "that's incorrect."
"You can get infected, and will get infected if you put yourself at risk," he added.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it's important for as many people to get vaccinated as possible to stop the disease from spreading. Data from the CDC also shows that 54.5% of adults over the age of 18 have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while just 37.8% are fully vaccinated.
The CDC has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
