WATCH: CNN’s Leana Wen Claims Vaccinated People Pose a Major Threat to Unvaccinated Children


During an appearance on ‘Democracy Now!’ over the weekend, CNN’s top medical advisor, Dr. Leana Wen, claimed vaccinated Americans pose a significant health threat to unvaccinated children because they may carry COVID-19.

“Those who are vaccinated, we now know based on the CDC, they are now able with the Delta Variant, because they carry so much virus, they may transmit it to their unvaccinated family members,” said Wen.

“I, for example, even though I’m fully vaccinated, my children are not because they’re too young. So now I have to be careful for my children because of all the unvaccinated people around us,” she added.

Wen made similar comments earlier this month, claiming school children should only remove their facemasks when vaccinated and subjected to daily COVID testing.

“Masks are a very powerful layer of protection. It’s one layer … Let’s say a school or class where everyone is vaccinated in that class, I could imagine that situation where we would remove masks. Or if we have rapid testing. Imagine if every child and teacher were tested every morning, and also they’re vaccinated … Maybe you can remove masks at that time. We’re nowhere near that yet,” Dr. Wen told CNN.

    I’ve been saying this for a while. Why are we mandating medical people get the vaccine when this same scenario also applies to anyone, vaccinated or not, with a compromised immune system(i.e. in the hospital).

    good, burn em down

  4. TaylorGonne@protonmail.com says:

    So if vaccinated people can spread to un vaccinated people and un vaccinated people can spread to vaccinated people then can vaccinated people spread vaccinated people? And if vaccinated teaches and students need to wear masks AND get tested…
    Does this sound like a goat rope to anyone else?

    So even though you get the vax you still can carry this virus? Then why are nurses loosing their jobs because they don’t want to get the “shot” if they STILL can carry the virus and make others sick?
