The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can’t do this.
On Monday, new data from the CDC emerged that shows evidence to support the claim that fully vaccinated people don’t have this.
According to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Rochelle Walensky, new data from the CDC suggests that fully vaccinated people don’t actually carry the virus.
Here’s what Dr. Walensky said, “Our data from the CDC today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick and it’s not just in the clinical trials but also in real-world data.”
ECU associate professor of microbiology & immunology Dr. Rachel Roper said that previously researchers didn’t know for sure if a fully vaccinated person would be unable to spread the virus to others, but now, “we have good evidence that you will be safe and not spread it to other people.”
Roper goes on to say that fully vaccinated people have more freedom than previously thought, stating, “You can visit friends and family who might be susceptible to the virus or getting severely ill from the virus.”
However, fully vaccinated people will still be required to follow the public health recommendations that are present in their state.
