Radio shock jock Howard Stern has made sure it’s no secret that he believes hospitals should deny treatment to people who have not been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
Stern said on his Wednesday broadcast of “The Howard Stern Show” on Sirius XM that when unvaccinated people showed up at hospitals with symptoms of COVID-19, they should be turned away.
Stern was responding to a caller, identified as “Aaron,” who claimed that it was unfair for hospitals to put time, effort, and expense into treating people who had not gotten one of the available COVID-19 vaccines.
“What would you think about just letting the pandemic run wild and move through the unvaccinated?” Aaron asked Stern.
“If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital,” Stern replied, and Aaron agreed, adding, “Send them home with a bottle of Robitussin.”
