Offspring drummer kicked off tour after refusing coronavirus vaccine says he suffers from rare condition

Offspring drummer Pete Parada sent out a lengthy Twitter thread Monday announcing he won’t be with the band on its coronavirus comeback tour and speaking out against vaccine requirements.

“I do not find it ethical or wise to allow those with the most power (government, corporations, organizations, employers) to dictate medical procedures to those with the least power,” he
wrote near the middle of a 17-tweet thread.

Parada, 48, has Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare disease that causes the immune system to attack the patient’s own nerves, and said his doctor has advised him that getting the COVID-19 vaccine could be more dangerous than getting the virus again, which he had a “mild” case of last year.

“There are countless folks (like me) for whom these shots carry a greater risk than the virus,” he continued. “Most of us don’t publicly share a private decision we made in careful consideration with our doctors.” – READ MORE
