Sen. Ted Cruz has stated that he’s no longer going to be sporting those oh so stylish face masks on Capitol Hill due to the fact he’s been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Cruz recently spoke with the fake news generators over at CNN where he stated that other senators and staff working on the Hill have already taken the vaccine, therefore, they do not need to wear the masks.
In times not so long ago, Cruz stated that wearing face masks after receiving the jab is theatrical virtue signaling. And, as usual, he’s right on the money.
“At this point I’ve been vaccinated. Everybody working in the Senate has been vaccinated,” Cruz went on to say.
But guess what? Cruz isn’t the first senator to ditch the muzzles. That was Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who has been on the warpath against Dr. Anthony “Dr. Doom” Fauci and other COVID fearmongers.
CDC guidelines on what one can and cannot do post-vaccination are relatively restrictive, recommending people stay away from medium to large gatherings and maintain social distancing and wear masks while in public settings. According to the CDC, vaccinated people can unmask in private settings with a group of people who have also been vaccinated. Vaccinated people may also travel via plane with being tested before and after or quarantining.
The agency has explained its hesitancy to encourage further socializing by vaccinated people by stating that researchers are still studying the limits of what getting vaccinated can accomplish. The CDC states:
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
We’re still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions — like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces — in public places until we know more.
It seems that a lot of Americans are starting to lose faith in the vaccines, especially after the Biden administration decided to hit the big, fat pause button on the distribution and administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to the possibility of it causing a rare type of blood clot.
But hey, all of the celebrities in Hollywood are all over social media saying this bad boy is safe, so go ahead and get your shot. Don’t worry about any long term effects. That’s just conspiracy theory baloney or something.
