AceShowbiz - Howard Stern seemingly believes that those who are against COVID-19 vaccines do not deserve treatment at hospitals. The radio personality dragged anti-vaxxers in a new episode of his SiriusXM radio show, urging hospitals to just ignore them.
"If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital," Howard said in the Wednesday, January 19 episode. "At this point, they have been given plenty of opportunity to get the vaccine."
The 68-year-old went on to say, "[People] have been told you will die if you get the vaccine. Some of you will live, but most of you will die. [These people] don't trust our government. They think that there's some conspiracy to turn them into a magnet or something like this."
"They think they are going to become magnetized if they take the vaccine. I've taken this vaccine three times, and the worst side effect is for a day, I had a little bit of a headache," he continued.
The host added that he believed hospitals should just turn away the unvaccinated patient so they would "go home and die." He explained, "No one's sitting there conspiring against you."
"Americans don't want to create a vaccine that's going to turn you into a robot or magnetize you. There's enough Americans now have taken it. Look at us as a sampling where nothing has happened to us. It's time for you to get it," he said. "Now, if you don't get it, in my America, all hospitals would be closed to you. You're going to go home and die. That is what you should get. Absolutely."
According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki during a press briefing earlier this month, the unvaccinated are 17 times more likely to be hospitalized and 20 times more likely to die, compared to those who have received their shots. Mayo Clinic, meanwhile, reported that 63 percent of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, with 75.1 percent receiving at least one dose.
