Howard Stern said the vaccine should be mandatory and said “fuck” the freedom of the unvaccinated, as he mocked radio hosts who’ve died from COVID-19 that didn’t take the shot.
“It’s really funny when these radio, the radio guys are the best, they’re like four of them died, four of them were like ranting on the air,” the 67-year-old shock jock explained on “The Howard Stern Show” on Sirius XM radio. The comments were noted by the New York Post in a piece published Thursday.
“They will not get vaccinated,” he added. “They were on fire, these guys. It was like day after day, they were all dying and then their dying words are ‘I wish I had been more into the vaccine. I wish I had taken it.’”

“When are we going to stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say, you know, it’s mandatory to get vaccinated?” Stern continued. “Fuck them, fuck their freedom. I want my freedom to live. I want to get out of the house already. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures.”
During the segment, he and his co-host Robin Quivers discussed how when they were in school it was mandatory to get vaccines.
“I’ll tell you what, far as I remember, when I went to school you had to get a measles vaccine, you had to get a mumps vaccine, you had to get — it was a ton of them,” the radio host shared.
