Did anyone read this yet? Or see this?

CDC says that “Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.” Namely…..

“If you’ve been fully vaccinated:

You can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic.

You can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required”

I’m fully vaccinated and I’m so glad I am!

I’m not happy about this. There’s no way to prove who’s vaccinated and who isn’t. People are going to lie about their status. We were out shopping today and my husband saw a woman wearing a mask that said “This mask is as useless as my Governor.” Does she seem trustworthy? Does she maybe seem like someone who’d doff her mask at the first chance, whether she’d been vaccinated or not, because she’s an imbecile and has no regard for the lives of others?

I think that it’s moronic to lift the ban until enough of the population has been vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. I’m including the under-18s in that.

I had Covid last August and it has ripped my life apart. I’m terrified of the prospect of getting it again. Terrified, and I do not scare easily. Fewer masks and fewer precautions means more chances for the virus to mutate. We don’t know if the vaccines will protect us from mutations. I do not know what having Covid again would do to me, but I’ll tell you up front that permanent damage to my sense of smell would be ample reason for me to give serious consideration as to whether I still want to live. I can’t let go of the fear of what could happen to my loved ones.

It’s been slowly dawning on me that I may have brand new trauma issues around Covid that will need to be worked on.

I got my second shot today. My husband is getting his second one soon. Unfortunately, I don't know when our son will be able to get it and he has some risk factors. That worries me. I wish it was approved for children.

I'm also concerned that people will not be honest about their status.

I have already had my second shot, but I totally agree with gearhead. Is it that much of a hardship to wear a mask in close quarters knowing it will probably benefit us as a country in the end

Well shit. I never thought about the idiots who could lie about this. I’m sad now. This sucks. People will lie about being vaccinated. It will happen. I’m worried now. Very worried. I’m anxious about very bad outcomes. 
 

And the no mask aspect scares me still.

By all means, get vaccinated. It’s the best way to deal with uncertainty about who else may be vaccinated, or not. It’s the best way to prevent mutations. It protects people who can’t get the vaccine.

For those of you concerned about the efficacy of vaccines against variants of COVID, research is still limited, but preliminary studies indicate that the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccines all convey at least some protection against variants after the full course of immunizations has been administered. Given the newness of the Delta variant, information is even more limited there, but an early study suggests that the Pfizer vaccine is 85% successful at warding off infection against even the Delta variant after the second dose.

The important point isn't so much whether the vaccines are able to absolutely shield one from infection, but whether they can prevent one from becoming seriously ill as a result of infection. It appears that all of the vaccines have a very high success rate in those terms. This is why COVID is so much more frightening than the annual strain of influenza that we're all encouraged to get an annual shot for - COVID has been causing very serious, long-lasting, and frequently life-threatening illness. Pulling those fangs out of COVID is the most important role of the vaccines. According to recent statistics, among the deaths still occurring from COVID, the victims are overwhelmingly from among the unvaccinated.

Go get your shots, if you haven't already.

I totally agree......The scary thing about lifting mask mandates is that there's really no way to prove who's vaxxed and who's not.....Yes, at least some people are definitely going to lie, and as far as I know, no stores are even making an effort to check yet.

To give example, my sister refuses to get vaccinated, and, now that mask mandates have been lifted, she goes inside places without a mask !!...AARGGHH....She says no one in any store she's been in, has even asked if she's vaxxed...I'm very ashamed to admit my own sister is risking her health, and health of others....

I have heard of some cases of people trying to get and sell fake vaccination cards....Those links are in my other thread about the WHO.

Like I've said before, I don't trust the general public....There's certainly going to be at least some unvaccinated folks walking around inside stores with no mask........So even though I'm fully vaxxed, I'll still wear a mask on the rare occasions I go inside a place of business.....
