DeSantis spurns CDC advice, says vaccines are effective and ‘you’re immune, and so, act immune’

There are not enough superlatives to describe the performance of Governor Ron DeSantis. The people of Florida owe DeSantis a huge debt of gratitude for not shutting down Florida. In fact, DeSantis could very well end up saving this country. What a star. #DeSantis2024.

Florida is a textbook case of how to handle a media-frenzied fearmongering panic with a cool head, logic and reason.

DeSantis spurns CDC advice, says vaccines are effective and ‘you’re immune, and so, act immune’

By Washington Examiner, April 17, 2021

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has challenged the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci and others in the medical community who are encouraging people to continue social distancing and wearing a mask once they are fully vaccinated.

“My view is if you get a vaccine, the vaccines are effective, you’re immune, and so, act immune,” DeSantis told a crowd in Lakeland, Florida.

The Republican governor argued that people have become discouraged from getting the vaccine since doing so will result in no major changes in their daily lives.

“I think the messaging is horrific,” DeSantis said. “I think the messaging should be, ‘Get a vaccine because it’s good for you to do it. It works. You’re not going to have to have to be doing anything abnormal. You can live your life.’ That’s got to be what the message is.”

DeSantis’ claim runs contrary to advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which recommends people to continue wearing a mask even when fully vaccinated.

“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,” the CDC said in a report earlier this month titled “When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated.”

According to the report, fully vaccinated people should still not “attend medium or large gatherings” or “visit indoors, without a mask, with people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.”

People can, per the CDC guidelines, “visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people of any age.”
