    CDC plans to drop mask requirements for fully vaccinated people
    The guidance is based on research showing the high effectiveness of the vaccines.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce that people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 no longer need to wear masks or physically distance, indoors or outdoors in most circumstances, according to two sources familiar with the recommendations.

    The new recommendation comes more than a year after the CDC first recommended that Americans should wear masks to protect against spreading or catching the coronavirus. At that time, the U.S. was logging more than 1,000 Covid-19 deaths per day.

    A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the last dose of Covid-19 vaccine. That gives the immune system enough time to develop antibodies against the virus. According to CDC data, more than 35 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated...

    If Scott Gottlieb, former head of the FDA/current Pfizer board member, recognizes the scientific fact that immunity from natural infection exists, why does CDC ignore that type of immunity?

        Surely a sensible decision.
        It gets the CDC out of the 'mask/no mask' quagmire and it provides a powerful incentive to get vaccinated.
        If things turn sour later on, the mask requirement can always be reinstated.

          The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do. The choice is yours.

          Dr. Nicole Saphier: ?Dangerous? for Biden to Say ?Get Vaccinated Or Wear a Mask Until You Do?


          By Melanie Arter | May 14, 2021 | 11:20am EDT

          CNSNews.com) ? Fox News contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier pointed out Thursday that President Joe Biden?s ultimatum on mask wearing if you?re not vaccinated leaves out people who have already had COVID and have natural immunity as well as children.

          Saphier told Fox News?s ?Hannity? that Biden?s tweet directing people to ?get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do? was ?dangerous.?

          As CNSNews.com reported, the president announced CDC guidance Thursday that vaccinated people can go without masks indoors even when around people who are not vaccinated.

          ?I can tell you it?s a great step forward that the CDC is recognizing that the risk of transmission and severe disease and death after vaccination is exceedingly low so masks should come off, not just outdoors but indoors, as well. I will say President Biden put out a dangerous tweet a few hours ago,? Saphier said.

          ?He said essentially if you get vaccinated, great. If you're not getting vaccinated, you have to wear a mask until you get vaccinated, and the choice is yours. That?s dangerous, and let me tell you why that?s also neglecting science. What are about the people covered with natural immunity? What about children?? she said.

          ?What about people who have contraindications or just choosing not to get the vaccine? That is completely neglecting a huge population of Americans, and I think that?s dangerous. That is completely ignoring what the actual definition of herd immunity is,? Saphier said.

          ?When you're trying to get a sufficient amount of the population immune to protect the rest of the population who are not immune, that is the goal of herd immunity. It is not about 100% vaccination,? she said....
