BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): Everybody who's involved in this sort of stuff needs to be thrown out of office. If they're in the private sector, they need to be fired. There may need to be actual criminal prosecutions if you are disseminating false health information to people on the basis of zero evidence.


Now, as I've spoken out before, I got vaxxed twice or gotten double-vaxxed. My wife, being a doctor and seeing vulnerable patients, is triple-vaxxed. But, knowing now what I know then – knowing then what I know now, rather, would I actually have gotten vaxxed based on the information that my actual chances of death from COVID were exorbitantly low and I wouldn't be preventing my parents from getting -- that was really what I concerned about because we were bubbled with my parents – would I have gotten it? I don't know. I really don't know. I think maybe not. Because, again, my personal risk when it comes to the vaccine was extremely low when it came to COVID. I'm a young, healthy, male with no preexisting conditions.
