The esteemed psychologist has made it clear that he’s not a fan of taking a booster shot for COVID-19, despite pleas from Dr. Theresa Tam.
Dr. Jordan Peterson has flatly rejected calls by Canada’s “top doctor” to get a booster shot. On Saturday, Peterson slammed Dr. Tam’s calls for more booster shots, simply saying “over my dead body.”
Dr. Peterson is double vaccinated, which was the initial recommendation from health authorities. However, he has declined additional shots, and frequently broadcasts his disdain for the shots on his popular Twitter account.
Peterson has over 3.7 million followers on Twitter, making him one of the most prominent right-wing voices in Canada.
While Dr. Peterson is not specifically “anti-vax” like some of his contemporaries, he appears to believe additional Covid shots past the initial two are unnecessary.
Despite Peterson’s refusal to partake in additional Covid vaccine uptake, Canadian health authorities continue to recommend Covid boosters as a way to protect the public against the virus, and to reduce hospital admissions.
A large percentage of Canadians have moved on from the pandemic mentality, and have resumed living their lives as normal. However, Dr. Tam continues to advocate for health restrictions.
“We still have a ways to go, even for the 65-plus population.”
Dr. Peterson is not the only person to disregard Dr. Tam’s advice. Many others have taken to social media to decry the infamous doctor’s recommendations.
For example, one person stated they believe Covid is “less serious than the streets of Toronto.“
