This week Joe Biden took to the airwaves to strongly suggest that, if you're vaccinated against COVID-19, you cannot spread the disease:
"We're making sure healthcare workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you."
Emphasis added. There's just one problem: It's not guaranteed that a vaccinated person won't spread the virus.
How do we know that? Oh, nothing more than a little insignificant federal bureau called...the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others.
Well, gee, that seems a little definitive, doesn't it? Now, the CDC notes that vaccinated individuals "will likely spread the virus for less time than unvaccinated people," which is a good thing. But in no way at all—in any way, shape or form—is it "certain" that a vaccinated person will not infect you with COVID-19.
So, is Joe Biden getting hammered by social media censors for this demonstrably untrue suggestion? Well—and you may want to sit down for this one—no, he's not.
Let's wait and see if they end up censoring Biden's claim. Maybe they'll get around to it!
