CDC receives pushback after relaxing mask guidelines for fully vaccinated

Not everyone is celebrating the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new face mask guidelines, which state that people who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks outdoors or indoors.

Several individuals and groups on the left are criticizing the government agency for suddenly deciding to allow vaccinated people to go maskless, Bizpac Review reported

“Too risky”

Among those leading the criticism is CNN’s medical analyst and former Planned Parenthood director, Dr. Leana Wen.

“The CDC has done an about-face that’s shockingly abrupt: it’s confusing & could actually disincentivize vaccines,” Wen tweeted on Thursday. She added, “Yes, vaccinated people are well-protected and not a threat to others, but do we trust that the honor system — won’t unvaccinated people pretend to be vaccinated & stop wearing masks?”

Eric Feigl-Ding, a senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, similarly tweeted, “This is too risky in my opinion. Asymptomatic transmission efficacy is only in the 70s-80s even for the best vaccines. Much lower for others and for some variants.”

The CDC’s announcement was also criticized by the million-member United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union.

“Today’s CDC guidance is confusing and fails to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to individuals who are not vaccinated and refuse to wear masks,” UFCW President Marc Perrone said. “Millions of Americans are doing the right thing and getting vaccinated, but essential workers are still forced to play mask police for shoppers who are unvaccinated and refuse to follow local COVID safety measures. Are they now supposed to become the vaccination police?”

Background

On Thursday, the CDC released the guidelines that fully vaccinated Americans — that is, Americans who have received both vaccine doses at least two weeks prior — could now go maskless.

“Big news from the CDC: If you’re fully vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask — indoors or outdoors, in most settings,” the agency announced. “We’ve gotten this far. Whether you choose to get vaccinated or wear a mask, please protect yourself until we get to the finish line.”

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that fully vaccinated people can now “participate in indoor and outdoor activities large or small without wearing a mask or physical distancing.”

President Joe Biden took the opportunity to issue an authoritarian-like statement on the matter: “The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” Biden tweeted. “The choice is yours.”

What remains unclear is if and how this new guideline will be enforced.

  1. My last paycheck was $5500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

  2. If being vaccinated is so important, then why is 50% [or higher] of the employees at the CDC, NIH and FDA REFUSING to be vaccinated? (My source comes from question asked in the committee this past week!)

    1. i am making a good salary from home 1200 to 2500 Dollars per week.which is amazing, under a year back I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone,…. http://www.Cashapp3.com

  4. The mask thing is over done. They say once you’re vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask. It’s total bs. Many are vaccinated but still have to wear a mask to enter stores, etc. Suffice it to say there is no point in the vaccination. It’s time to take our constitutional rights back. Enough is enough.

    This site is not worth a damn. If they don’t like your commit they won’t post it.

  6. So they agree with the cdc, only when they say what they want to hear. So much for the cdc being the science people to believe.

  7. IN THE END NOBODY HAVE TO WEAR MASK IF VACCINATED !!!! NOW IT IS UP TO YOU WHAT YOU WANT ! I GET THE VACCIN AND I DO NOT CARE HO WANT TO STAY IN HEAD TO RAIN IN BUT BAT I SURE NEWER EWER I DO NOT PUT THE FREEKEN MASK ON MY FACE !! CAN GO TO HELL ALL THE LIAR DEMOCRATS WHIT THEY IDIOT LIES ! ONE THING IS TRUTH ! THE DEMOCRATS BORN LIARS AND I NOT TRUST NON OF THEM ,IN SPECIAL THE IDIOT LITTLE Scaramucy or what a hell hes name ,

  8. There is no study that shows masks work. There are several that show they don’t work, even some that show they do more harm than good.
    So if you have been vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask? What if you have had the virus, do you still have to wear a mask? I never heard anything about that. What if you tested negative? Still have to wear a mask? Even though you don’t have the virus and can’t transmit it too someone else? This whole thing has been crazy from the start. The politicians are beginning to get worried that their stupidity with this virus will cause people to not vote for them, so now they want to loosen the requirements and try to make the people think they care about them. People are so fed up with this crap, I don’t think it is going to work. I hope not anyway. They have already shown us how much they care for us. They only agenda is getting re-elected. They will say or do whatever they think will get them the votes they need.

  9. Our government is out of control over the masks. No one seems to know what the other is doing, thus, no one knows what to do about the masks. Since I can’t say anything nice, I will say no more.

  10. why do fully vaccinated people care about anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated or if they have a mask on or not. If the vaccine
    works they won’t catch anything anyway. Just start living your life and keep your nose out of anyone else’s
    business.

  11. First of all, even without treatment or a vaccine over 95% of all people, and 99% of children and young adults, who get COVID-19 (SARS CO-V2) survive it. Those who become symptomatic have an almost 100% survival rate if they immediately begin a treatment regimen (not quarantine for two weeks!) with Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and/or several other safe effective drugs that are readily available. I’m convinced that masks don’t prevent the spread of the infection at all. I’ve heard a number of highly-credentialed experts explain that the particles of SARS COV2 are so infinitesimally small that they go right through the typical masks that people have been wearing. These masks cause more harm than good. They restrict oxygenated air flow from constantly breathing in and out the same stale CO2. This causes light-headedness, dizziness, and cognitive impairments. There have not been any properly designed studies that support the efficacy of masks. How many who have actually died of this infection wore masks? Probably 100% since everyone has been required to wear them. So, so many doctors who actually treat COVID-19 and scientists in this field: Dr Simone Gold, Dr Sherri Tenpenny, Dr Judy Mikovitz, Dr Geert Vanden Bossch, Dr Carrie Madej, just to name a few, have explained why these injections known as “vaccines” may not be the right approach or may be downright dangerous. There have not been any long term studies, death rates are higher than for flu shots, they may damage one’s immune system, cause higher than average rates of blood clotting problems, and the pharma companies that produce them are exempt from legal liability should there be serious side effects, injuries, and deaths from them (good luck proving it!). There are many reputable doctors and scientists who have been expressing very serious concerns about these alleged “vaccines”. What I don’t understand is how so many sheeple are taking those jabs and following Pied Piper Fauci to the edge of the cliff. Why aren’t more people questioning these highly controversial injections, given the many issues that have been identified with them? Check out AmericasFrontLineDoctors.com, LifeSiteNews.com, and Brighteon.com for excellent presentations by many medical experts. Due to the fact that they have not been proven to be either safe or effective (not to mention connections to aborted children in most of them), I have decided not to take the injections. The statement made by President Biden that people who do not take the “vaccine” will have to continue to wear masks concerns me greatly. So what’s next: the unvaccinated won’t be allowed to travel, shop, get medical , …? Will they be marginalized and eventually persecuted? One must ask: WHO is behind these unscientific mandates and why? Some of us know, but unfortunately many do not.

  12. Maria, you are right on target with everything you have said. The mRNA so-called vaccine is not a vaccine. It is injecting genetic material into you and people will find that they will come down with autoimmune diseases. Women have had miscarriages and they say that it will cause sterility and some women. I am extremely concerned that any child would get this vaccine. It is a method to depopulate plain and simple.

  13. I don’t believe these masks do any good,
    I’m uncomfortable wearing one, I wear it to help others feel safer ?
    I avoid going out alot so I don’t need to wear it too often.

  14. I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where i started…………..—->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> http://snag4.com/
