(CNS News) -- Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a medical doctor who was infected with COVID, recovered, and is now vaccinated against the virus, advised people to stop listening to "government scolds" about the pandemic, and said once you are vaccinated, to "trash your mask and live free again."

Paul tweeted his remarks in response to a Mar. 8 tweet by CNN Breaking News that said, "The CDC releases guidelines giving limited freedoms to people fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Here are the rules to keep following."

Dr. Paul responded, "Rather than listening to government scolds, look to the science of immunology: and once you’re 2 weeks out from the vaccine, or have recovered from the actual infection, trash your mask and live free again."

Back in January, Sen. Paul told FOX News, "If you’ve had the disease or you’ve been vaccinated and you’re several weeks out of your second dose, throw your mask away and tell Dr. Fauci to take a leap because, once you have immunity, you don’t need to do this."
