In a U.S. Senate hearing Thursday, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, debated if Americans need to wear masks after they have either been vaccinated or have natural immunity following a COVID infection.
“You’re telling everybody to wear a mask whether they have had an infection or a vaccine. What I’m saying is they have immunity, and everybody agrees they have immunity,” Paul said. “What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater? You’ve had the vaccine, and you’re wearing two masks. Isn’t that theater?”
