WATCH: CNN guest argues states should not reopen because it takes away the incentive to get vaccinated

Appearing on CNN with Chris Cuomo, CNN guest Dr. Leana Wen argued that states should not reopen because it eliminates the incentive to get vaccinated.

“The CDC and the Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say ‘If you are vaccinated, you can do all these things, these are all these freedoms that you have. Otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy those freedoms anyway,” Wen argued.


One Twitter user wrote “Our rights are not a cudgel that we should be beaten with. Our rights are not a bargaining chip that the government can withhold to get us to do what they want.”

Another twitter user replied “Control is the name of the game.”

“Control through lies and deceit – rhe Democratic/Socialist way”

Dr. Leana Wen tweeted Friday afternoon “This is the kind of story we need to see a lot more–what people are now choosing to do after being fully vaccinated. Yes, there is still some risk, but activities that were previously high risk for #covid19 spread are much lower risk after vaccination.
