Why don't you get a jab: The drummer said that his doctor advised him against the vaccine given his personal medical history and "the side-effect profile of these jabs"

The Offspring have apparently dropped drummer Pete Parada, who has attributed the split to his decision not to get the COVID-19 vaccine under advice from his doctor.

The musician, who has performed with the band since 2007, revealed his apparent departure from the band on Instagram yesterday (August 3). Parada said that his decision not to get vaccinated has rendered him “unable to comply with what is increasingly becoming an industry mandate”, and as such “it has recently been decided that I am unsafe to be around, in the studio and on tour”.

He added: “You won’t be seeing me at these upcoming shows.”

The drummer said he had decided not to get vaccinated after consulting with his doctor, who advised him “not to get a shot at this time” given his personal medical history and “the side-effect profile of these jabs”.

“I caught the virus over a year ago, it was mild for me – so I am confident I’d be able to handle it again, but I’m not so certain I’d survive another post-vaccination round of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which dates back to my childhood and has evolved to be progressively worse over my lifetime,” he explained.

“Unfortunately for me, (and my family – who is hoping to keep me around a bit longer) the risks far outweigh the benefits.”
