JOE Rogan revealed on Wednesday he has Covid and has taken a cocktail of drugs to battle his symptoms after suffering a “fever and sweats.”
Rogan — who faced backlash for his comments about the coronavirus vaccine earlier this year and has not publicly disclosed whether he’s gotten the jab — admitted to feeling “weary” and “run down” before getting tested for the virus.

The American comedian and podcast host shared a 1-minute and 38-second video on Instagram announcing his diagnosis.
He captioned the post: “I GOT COVID
“My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24. Much love to you all.”
In the video, Rogan revealed he started feeling sick when he got home from a road trip on Saturday night.
“I got back from the road Saturday night, feeling very weary. I had a headache and I just felt… just run down,” Rogan said at the start of his video announcement.
“Just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house, and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats,” he added. “I knew what was going on. So I got up in the morning, got tested… and turns out I got Covid.”
The 54-year-old podcaster — who admitted to having “only one bad day” — said he immediately started taking monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, and Prednisone.
“I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip — and I did that three days in a row,” Rogan explained, noting that he was feeling great on Wednesday.
“Sunday sucked, but Monday was better, Tuesday felt better than Monday, and today I feel good. I actually feel pretty f**king good.”
He then revealed the “bad news” he had to share, about rescheduling his upcoming Friday show in Nashville to Sunday, October 24.
Rogan expressed his regret: “My apologies to everyone… It is what it is.
“Crazy times we’re living in.”
As he concluded his message, he gave a “wonderful, heartfelt Thank You to modern medicine” for helping him so “quickly and easily.”
Back in April, Rogan was blasted for telling millions of fans young people should not get the Covid jab because they are “fit and healthy.”
The $100m Spotify podcast star’s comments came as President Joe Biden pleaded with youngsters to “go get vaccinated now.”
Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience, the podcaster said he recommended “vulnerable” people get the shot, adding his parents have had theirs and agreeing it was safe.
But he said: “If you’re like 21 years old, and you say to me, Should I get vaccinated? I’ll go no.
“If you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
Not long after he was hit with controversy surrounding his April 2021 comments, Rogan took to his podcast to address it.
Rogan said he was not “anti-vaxx.”
He explained: “In fact, I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take them.
“My parents were vaccinated. I just said I don’t think if you’re a young healthy person you need it.”
He also added that he was “not a doctor.”
“I’m a f**king moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator,” he said.
He continued that he was “not a respected source of information even for me.”
“But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying,” he added.
