In December, Pinsky was detected with COVID-19, months after he asked forgiveness for calling the pandemic “press induced panic,” according to Yahoo News.
International travel requires vaccinations, & & has for years. I needed to get them to check out Brazil in 1999, & & India in 2015.

So far, Pinsky hasnt admitted that, yes, vaccination passports have actually belonged of global travel for decades.
Nevertheless, he did finally drop phony claims of liberty and made a basic request that Americans get among the COVID-19 vaccines.

Vaccinations are essential, and I motivate everybody to get the Covid vaccine, but how would you feel if international travel also required other vaccinations?– Dr. Drew (@drdrew) April 5, 2021
Um, theres a lot of global travel that requires vaccinations. You d think a physician would know that. https://t.co/uRl5ZaMV5O— Doug Heye (@DougHeye) April 5, 2021

Putting this up in earnest after spending all the time getting screamed at for a tweet thats certainly stupid is honestly extraordinary publishing. https://t.co/qfKdvr0qxn— David Roth (@david_j_roth) April 5, 2021
Luckily, one Twitter user managed to translate Pinskys real message.
” Always look for a medical professional who prices quote dead presidents rather of admitting a mistake” … said no one ever. https://t.co/OVukjeYBuI— Brian Lowry (@blowryontv) April 5, 2021
Dr. Drew Pinskys take on vaccine passports earned him a failing grade from Twitter users on Monday.
It happened after the medical physician and media character suggested on Twitter that needing vaccination passports for traveling internationally strips individuals of their liberty.
These vaccine passports segregate people and strip them of their freedom to take a trip worldwide. Vaccinations are essential, and I encourage everyone to get the Covid vaccine, but how would you feel if global travel also required other vaccinations?– Dr. Drew (@drdrew) April 5, 2021
International travel absolutely does need vaccination certificates to get in certain nations. Yellow fever is a common example. An extensive list below (@WHO) of all countries requirements. #CovidPassport https://t.co/LUi5uKaizH https://t.co/NybKuJnwfe— Mikey Kay (@MikeyKayNYC) April 5, 2021
Pinsky was right away dragged by Twitter users for being unaware about a key truth: Vaccines have actually been required for some international travel since the 1940s.
Numerous countries already require evidence of other vaccinations and its awkward that you dont know that however would pick to speak on this topic https://t.co/yFS07gqsP0— Ryan Marino (@RyanMarino) April 5, 2021
Not remarkably, lots of Twitter users were stunned that a nationally recognized medical physician like Pinsky would be so unaware that vaccinations are typically needed for international travel.
Um … Dr. Drew …? How typically do you take a trip abroad? https://t.co/soo9V9AJcJ https://t.co/XGulzLNO1b— Joy-Ann Pro-Democracy & & Masks Reid (@JoyAnnReid) April 5, 2021

After getting massively “ratioed” for the tweet, Pinsky apparently decided that instead of confessing he was incorrect, it would be better to post a puzzling quote from previous President Theodore Roosevelt.
” Its not the critic who counts; not the man who mentions how the strong male stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done then much better. The credit belongs to the man who is really in the arena.” -Teddy Roosevelt #DareGreatly– Dr. Drew (@drdrew) April 5, 2021
