New Data From the CDC Makes Mask Mandates for the Vaccinated Look Absolutely Foolish

If you’re like me, you’re tired of the left’s constant call to “science” while they continue to ignore the wealth of data and evidence that their COVID-19 restrictions are not only unnecessary but, in some cases, more detrimental in their effect than had they done nothing.  This follows my piece from a few days ago, where I showed we knew the target population a year ago derived from the data from the Diamond Princess.


Now, it appears that Joe Biden’s begging for the continuance for mask mandates for the vaccinated, but this is counter to the data and evidence coming from his own CDC officials.

From NYMag:

After warning for months that vaccinated people should still be cautious in order to not infect others, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests they may not be at much risk of transmitting the coronavirus.

“Vaccinated people do not carry the virus — they don’t get sick,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday. That’s “not just in the clinical trials, but it’s also in real-world data.”

Walensky was referring to a new CDC study that suggests those fully inoculated with the vaccines produced by Moderna and Pfizer don’t transmit the virus. Researchers looked at how the shots protected nearly 4,000 health-care workers, first responders, and other essential workers toiling in eight U.S. locations against the virus and more-contagious variants. Following a single dose of either vaccine, the participants’ risk of infection was reduced by 80 percent, and that figure jumped to 90 percent after the second dose. Without infection, people are unable to spread the virus. The results are similar to what scientists saw in clinical trials for the vaccines, which found that two doses of either two-dose vaccine had an efficacy rate of around 95 percent.
In other words, not only are fully vaccinated people essentially incapable of getting the virus, but they are also incapable of transmitting it, making mandates restricting their travel, participation in group events, or demanding they wear masks, completely unnecessary and superficial.  Our slippery slide into further government control has ironically, slid further away from fact and scientific evidence. At this point, vaccinated individuals should have zero restrictions.  Not only would this increase willingness to receive the vaccine, but would increase economic opportunities as more and more people receive the vaccine.
A few weeks ago, the President tweeted this:
What is so funny about this, is according to the CDC’s own data, neither Biden nor Harris could give the other the virus, let alone contract it in the first place.  That doesn’t stop Biden from continuing his flat-out stupid mask-mandate howls.
