Given the poorly designed vaccine cards, you can bet there will be counterfeit cards everywhere.
You’re not a real boy, Josh Hawley.
At least it might get some people to get partially vaccinated which is better than nothing. Not saying it’s better than fully vaccinated either.
I will be wearing a mask when I’m in the store. Particularly when I’m visiting on the “red side” of the state, even though I’m vaccinated. Here’s the math:
My vaccine protects me about 95% better than no vaccine. And without a vaccine, about 2% of people get infected in any given month. That’s one chance in 10,000 per month. I’m a bit of a recluse anyway, so halve it. A mask is actually a pretty small price, so reducing even a 1/20,000 chance is worth it, a lot of the time.
Besides, It’ll cut the number of colds I get, maybe even the flu. And it will probably put the people at ease who are the kind of people I might like to know.
Shouldn’t he be wearing a MAGA hat?
He probably wasn’t wearing one before anyway.
Isn’t this guy the latest Trump Party Chairman?
We’ll see how this all works out.
Idiots are buying counterfeit cards instead of getting a free one just to “own the libs”.
So long as there is COVID in your area.. you are playing the odds by not wearing a mask.. vaccinated or not.
Personally I would prefer not to catch COVID at all so I will continue with the mask thing. It would haunt me for some time should “I” catch COVID, with a mild case, be asymptomatic and pass it onto some anti-vaxer.
CDC just said vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask. About time. My state still has a mask mandate, however, even for the fully vaccinated. Mixed messaging, there…You need to get vaccinated! Everybody needs to get vaccinated! Vaccinations work! They work so well that we still want you to wear a mask, social distance yourself, stay away from indoor and outdoor crowds, limit the size of gatherings in your home, limit the capacity at churches and businesses. But by all means, enjoy the fact that you are fully vaccinated, just conduct yourself as if you aren’t. Science anyone?
He’s all for voter ID, but totally against vaccine passports…
I need to find a Lanyard to wear my Vax Passport like a Backstage Pass at a concert. While I’ve always worn a mask over the last 15 months I see no reason to continue now that I’m fully Vaxed, after my 2 week vax marinade sinks in. I think our embattled governor is kissing a lot of butts to avoid being recalled. Cali will follow CDC science and drop mask mandates for vaccinated voters. So many Karen’s & Chads will wear masks in public forever after the plague because they live in fear, fear of everything. Asians have been wearing masks for decades, seeing it take hold in America wouldn’t be a surprise for me. #nofear # liveyourlife # getthestick
Oh no. That’s just a cold sore!
A cold sore the size of a head? Now that is definitely scary. You were referring to a member of the Repulsican Crime Family, right?
So liars get a “Woody” like in Toy Story . . . . are they still collectable ?
Just over 100 million adults are vaccinated out of over 300 million Americans. So yeah, a 1/3 is protected, a 1/3 (mostly children waiting for approval), and a 1/3 are morons that refuse to be vaccinated.
I get my 2nd injection soon; I’m going to keep wearing a mask just to piss-off the T****ists who refuse to get vaxxed.

CDC guidelines say fully vaccinated people must still wear a mask in health care settings, transportation hubs such as airports and stations, and public transportation. That includes planes, buses and trains traveling into, within or outside of the U.S. as part of a federal mask mandate that was extended to Sept. 13.
The agency also said fully vaccinated people must wear a mask or socially distance in places required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
It means fully vaccinated people may still need to wear a mask depending on where they live and where they go. Some business owners may follow CDC guidelines, but others may be more reluctant to lift their own rules on masking.
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated: ±
2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.
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 by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms.
However, if you live or work in a correctional or detention facility or a homeless shelter and are around someone who has COVID-19, you should still get tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
(To be continued)
For now, if you’ve been fully vaccinated:
You will still need to follow guidance at your workplace and local businesses.
If you travel, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others. You will still be required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations. Fully vaccinated international travelers arriving in the United States are still required to get tested within 3 days of their flight (or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 3 months) and should still get tested 3-5 days after their trip.
You should still watch out for symptoms of COVID-19, especially if you’ve been around someone who is sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested and stay home and away from others.
People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken the immune system, should talk to their healthcare provider to discuss their activities. They may need to keep taking all precautions to prevent COVID-19.
