Short Psaki: Because we said so you have to wear a mask even if you’ve had the vaccine.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki could not use science to defend the CDC’s new mask recommendations.
Fox News’s Peter Doocy: “If vaccines work, this sign says that they do, then why do people who have the vaccine now need to wear masks the same as people who have not had it?”
Psaki: “Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination based on data, that that is a way to make sure they are protected, their loved ones are protected, that is an extra step given the transmissibility of the virus.”

The CDC recommended vaccinated people wear masks indoors and universal masking in K-12 schools:
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky later said in a call with reporters that the decision to issue new guidance “was not something we took lightly,” but comes amid “worrisome” new science.
“In recent days, I have seen new scientific data from sequenced outbreak investigations showing that the delta variant behaves uniquely differently from past strains of the virus that cause COVID-19,” Walensky told reporters over a call. “Information on the delta variant from several states and other countries indicate that in rare occasions, some vaccinated people infected with the delta variant after vaccination may be contagious and spread the virus to others.”
However, only a few vaccinated people make up those with new virus cases.
In other words, it is up to us with the vaccine to protect those who have not received the vaccine.
Plus, some people cannot get the vaccine because of health issues or age so does that mean we can never go without a mask? Every time a new variant shows up, which will happen because science, we all have to wear masks again?
