Latest COVID-19 Roundup: Government Vaccine Databases and School Mask Mandates

Biden’s HHS Secretary tried to say the government should know everyone’s vaccination status. Meanwhile the CDC is loosening mask mandates for in-school learning this fall despite a new study showing the minimal risk of serious illness to kids.

  • Fox News reported on California’s refusal to follow the science by requiring masks for everyone in schools regardless of vaccination status, which the state of California is based on fairness. 
  • Newsmax interviewed former Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams who said the government needs to be more responsible in how they engage the public in the discussion about vaccines. 
  • In response to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra’s pronouncement that the government deserves to know the vaccination status of all Americans, the Daily Caller reported on White House press secretary Jen Psaki walking that back by saying the White House has “no intention” of maintaining a database of Americans’ vaccination status.
