Ben Shapiro Changes Tune On Vaccine Despite Calling Vaccine Skeptics ‘Dopes’

A popular and highly influential rightwing figure who called COVID-19 vaccine skeptics “dopes” in 2020 has begun saying he was deceived by vaccination supporters.
The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro was one of the few Conservative voices who advocated for COVID-19 vaccination during the pandemic. Shapiro went as far as calling vaccine skeptics “dopes.”

“The vaccine is 95% effective in preventing you from getting the virus, and also mitigates the severity of the disease…In other words, get the vaccine, dopes,” Shapiro posted to his four million Twitter followers in December 2020.
