Jordan Peterson decried the back-and-forth messaging about the coronavirus vaccine, saying the government won't leave him alone after getting vaccinated.
The Canadian author and academic spoke with conservative commentator Dave Rubin on Wednesday about how government COVID-19 restrictions are affecting Canadians.
"You know, Canadians who aren't vaccinated now cannot leave the country," Peterson told Rubin in a video posted Tuesday. "What the hell?"

Initially, Peterson believed that getting the vaccine would make the government leave him alone and allow for a normal life, he said.
"Look, I got vaccinated, and people took me to task for that," he said. "And I thought, 'All right, I'll get the damn vaccine.'"
“Here’s the deal, guys: I'll get the vaccine, you f***ing leave me alone. And did that work? No. So, stupid me," Peterson continued. "That's how I feel about it. So, like, well, I have to get tested for COVID when I come back into Canada. I have to get tested before I leave Canada. ... Why did I get the vaccine then if you're not going to leave me alone?"

Peterson teaches at the University of Toronto and at other colleges internationally, presenting conservative values to students, among other topics.
A parody of Peterson appeared in a volume of Marvel's Captain America earlier in 2021. The author apparently used Captain America's villain, Red Skull, to lampoon life advice Peterson gives in his book 12 Rules for Life.
