Sen. Paul: Once you have immunity, ‘throw your mask away’

In a new Fox News interview, Senator Rand Paul gave his medical opinion on wearing masks after one obtains immunity through the vaccine, saying many doctors and experts “will never let up” with COVID regulations and mask recommendations.

“There are doctors out there saying, ‘we need to wear them after the vaccine and really we may need to wear them forever,'” Paul said. “That is ridiculous.”

Paul said if you had the disease or has had the vaccine, including the second dosage, you should “throw your mask away and tell Dr. Fauci to take a leap.”

“Once you have immunity, you don’t need to do this,” Paul said. “Throw your mask away and tell these so-called experts who say lockdowns work to take a flying leap because there is no scientific evidence that the lockdowns have done anything to change the trajectory of this virus.”

Unlike most politicians giving their opinions on COVID rules and scientific data, Sen. Paul is an actual doctor and owned his own medical practice before entering politics in 2010.

Paul attended the Duke University School of Medicine and practiced ophthalmology in Bowling Green, Kentucky—later starting his own clinic in 2007.

Perhaps as greater amounts of Americans receive the coronavirus vaccine, more will follow Paul’s lead and ditch the mask.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
