Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Friday, "if you get a vaccine ... you're immune, and, so, act immune."
"If you tell people the opposite, then, gee, if it's not effective for them and it's not gonna change anything, then what's the point of going through it?" DeSantis said.
"I think the messaging on this has been horrific. 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 be doing anything abnormal. You can live your life.' That has got to be what the message is."
"Unfortunately, I think the message has been very muddled when you tell people, 'Oh, yeah, yeah, this is important. Go get the vaccine. But you still have to social distance. You can't do this. You can't do that. You can't eat in a restaurant.'"
"Some of the people are still saying that kind of stuff. I think it's a huge, huge blunder."
🔦 Dr. Anthony Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) debated last month whether wearing a mask is necessary for individuals that have been vaccinated or previously infected with coronavirus.
Paul argued it is "theater" for one to wear a mask if one has immunity. Fauci disagreed with Paul, saying "masks are protective."
