CDC’s Renewal of Mask Guidance Will Be Used to Push for Vaccine Passports and Mandates:
The CDC is set to reissue guidance that vaccinated individuals wear masks in certain indoor settings. This is a completely unnecessary step that cuts against efforts to persuade people that vaccines are worth taking. But it also could lead to an eventual shift away from vaccine persuasion and toward coercion.
Politico’s writeup of the news includes a noteworthy quote from Leena Wen, the former head of Planned Parenthood:
“I’m glad the CDC headed the overwhelming consensus of public health officials across the country,” said Leana Wen, a doctor at Georgetown University. “I wish that they went further and finally called for a system of proof for vaccination otherwise the vaccinated are being punished for the actions of the unvaccinated.” --->READ MORE HERE

Fact-Checkers Rewrite the History of Democrats’ Vaccine Skepticism:
With the Biden administration’s big push to vaccinate more Americans, PolitiFact, one of the media’s most consistently dishonest “factchecking” outfits, decided to rewrite history:
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have been pushing Americans to get inoculated against COVID-19. But a video on social media suggests that they actually had reservations about the safety of the vaccines.
Politifact contends that such accusations are completely false, as Biden and Harris were merely “raising concerns about the rollout by then-President Donald Trump, not the vaccines themselves.” This is an absurd distinction, tantamount to arguing that Donald Trump is “only raising concerns about those who conducted the 2020 election, not the election itself.”
Of course, if the former president released a statement promising never to take any vaccine that was produced during the Biden presidency, it would rightly be seen as perpetuating skepticism. Conspiracies theories about vaccines revolve around the producers and disseminators of the medicine. Vaccines do not organically appear from the ether. They are made. And both Biden and Harris worked to discredit those charged with creating them. --->READ MORE HERE
