Now that's some serious mis-information, if not insane, puzzling, misguided fear that cannot be reasoned with. You can't make this stuff up, Floyd.
Why are masks being advocated for vaccinated individuals?
Does the vaccine protect them?
Are they contagious?
If yes and no respectively, then what is the rationale?
You are right, there is some serious misinformation being disseminated,
causing further confusion and finger pointing, serving no useful purpose.
These questions are rhetorical since we are familiar with all the answers now extant and the twisted path they have taken to get where they are.
How much rationalization can still be rational?
Clarity is difficult to apprehend in a cacophony, so have a little compassion for her confusion and also examine everything you
hear carefully before accepting it as valid.
The very foundation of ALL science is skepticism.
To paraphrase the late Carl Sagan....
There is nothing about being absolutely sure that precludes one from being completely wrong!
