Sen. Rand Paul got himself in hot water with Jake Tapper when he asked Dr. Anthony Fauci if the practice of wearing a mask after one had been vaccinated against the coronavirus was nothing more than theater. President Biden has issued a (seemingly optional) mandate that masks be worn on federal property, even though he, his co-president, and Congress have already been vaccinated, but he can still be seen wearing two masks. Sen. Cruz won the day with his response when a reporter asked him to put on a mask for a TV interview, saying, “It’d make us feel better.”
Biden has said if we all play by the rules and just hang in there with the mask mandates and shutdowns and vaccinations, we might be able to have small get-togethers on Independence Day.
The messaging on vaccinations has been terrible, and a poll in the Washington Post shows just how bad it is; only 69 percent of people polled said they’d feel comfortable attending a sporting event where all attendees had received the vaccine.

You created abject panic and madness

The year-long fear and doom campaign seems to have had its intended effect, yes.

Polls are dumb. There's no way this is true.

I’ve been working in public spaces for the entirety of this pandemic. That includes spaces a lot of folks wouldn’t step foot in *pre*-pandemic.
Get some sun, wash your hands, don’t eat donuts every day, get the vaccine if you want it. Let’s open back up.

I think there still needs to be more work done on communicating just how good these vaccines are and what they prevent in the vast majority of people.

Fauci has screwed the pooch on this.

Public health messaging has failed

Yeah. Maybe the CDC and Fauci should stop implying the vaccine is basically useless.

When fully vaccinated I would 100% go to a large gathering like a sporting event.

I know this is crazy, but I'm actually encouraged that it is that high. I really expected it to be a bit lower. So many people are just so scared

We’ve definitely been conditioned — a lot of us, anyway. We wonder what percentage of people are going to wear a mask regardless from now on. And watch Biden walk back that “small groups in July” comment pretty soon.
DC public health campaign tells people how life will (not?) be different after the vaccine https://t.co/OoHmCZhdU6
