Founder of SpaceX and CEO and product architect of Tesla Elon Musk has announced that he and his family will not be getting Covid vaccines.
In a podcast with the New York Times opinion section, host Kara Swisher asked Musk whether or not his family is getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it is ready.
“No, I’m not at risk for COVID. Nor are my kids,” the Tesla CEO said.

Swisher and Musk also discussed the lockdowns that were put in place to spread the virus. Musk said he was opposed to them because they didn't “serve the greater good.”
“It has diminished my faith in humanity, the whole thing… the irrationality of people in general,” Musk said.
“Essentially, the right thing to do would be to not have done a lockdown for the whole country but to have, I think, anyone who’s at risk should be quarantined until the storm passes,” Musk said. “I mean, this is a hot button issue where rationality takes a back seat. In the grand scheme of things what we have is something with a very low mortality rate and high contagion.”
Swisher countered by saying his views on COVID-19 oppose his humanitarian work. Musk fired back, "Everyone dies."
No matter where you stand on Elon Musk, it's great to see someone who challenges groupthink. There are many people who agree with Musk, but don't have the clout or respect to deliver the message.
