UFC commentator and podcaster Joe Rogan has been requiring his guests to take a COVID-19 test since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and he has touted different treatments and vitamins to help with the virus.
However, he will not be taking a vaccine.
During a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast with actor and stand-up comedian Jamar Neighbors, Rogan said he would not take the vaccine because he doesn’t think he needs it.
For Rogan, simply staying healthy is all of the protection you need.
“No,” Rogan said about if he would take the vaccine, as transcribed by Bloody Elbow. “I mean I would if I felt like I needed it. I just feel like if you maintain your health—and I think for some people it’s important.
“I’m worried about [not being allowed to travel without vaccine]. I don’t like that. I want to know how people fare over x amount of months. What happens in six months after the vaccine? How long does it last for? Do you need it again next year?”

Currently, there are two vaccines being distributed in the United States, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. Both have had strong results and efficiency, but that’s not enough to convince Rogan a vaccine is necessary for him.
