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.
The CDC’s new guidance recommends the upcoming school year can start with vaccinated teachers and student going maskless, while implementing other “mitigation strategies.”
- These new guidelines come despite fresh data from the United Kingdom showing an even lower risk than previously thought of serious illness and death for children who contract COVID-19.
- These fresh concerns come as the delta variant, which is more contagious, “surges” worldwide, yet deaths have not risen.
- In the US, the Biden administration argued that it is “absolutely the government’s business” to know whether you’ve been vaccinated.
- A war of words was sparked by President Biden’s push for a so-called “door to door” vaccine campaign, prompting some state and local officials to denounce it.
- The New York Times noted the CDC’s school guidance comes at a time when even large liberal cities are not giving parents the option on online learning, while also reporting California will still require masks even for vaccinated students and teachers.
- CNN’s headline tip-toed into fearmongering, saying the CDC is pushing for in-person teaching even if schools don’t have “safety measures” in place.
- The Atlantic reported on what they characterized as rare but expected “breakthrough infections” in which a small amount of people who receive the coronavirus vaccine still get sick.
- 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.
