"If you are vaccinated, for you the pandemic is over," he said.
MARC THIESSEN: The message from the White House and from the federal government ought to be, "If you are vaccinated, for you the pandemic is over."
There have been 164 million Americans who have been fully vaccinated and less than a thousand of those have died of COVID. You are more likely to die from a lightning strike, a dog attack, drowning, a bee sting, or even seasonal flu, than you are to die of COVID-19 if you are vaccinated.
And the unvaccinated pose no risk to the vaccinated.
So the idea that we all have to run around wearing masks and going back to COVID restrictions is absurd. What the vaccines have done is they have taken this mortal threat and turned it into a threat no more dangerous than the common cold but our battle has never been against the common cold. It's been against mass death and mass death is over.
