Number of visits to US government’s vaccine website spiked by 22% after CDC released ‘confusing’ new mask guidance for vaccinated Americans

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxed mask guidelines for Americans who received the Covid-19 vaccination, which resulted in an increase in visits to the federal government’s vaccine website.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, announced two weeks ago that persons who have been completely vaccinated against the virus can remove their face coverings outside and in most indoor settings.

According to information gathered exclusively, traffic to vaccines.gov – a website that allows individuals to discover vaccination clinics near their ZIP code – surged by more than 20% that week compared to the previous week.

According to experts, the current proposals provided an incentive for vaccine critics to get their shots so that they may remove their masks in public after more than a year.

Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor of medicine and surgery at George Washington University School of Medicine, said to a source, ‘This proves incentives matter.’
‘People required a carrot, and the carrot was the opportunity to remove the mask in the majority of situations.’

On most days, visitors to the website peaked in the morning (ET) and then began to fall around midday.

However, things changed on Thursday, May 13, when Walensky presented the new advice during a news conference in the afternoon.

‘Once you’ve been completely vaccinated, you can resume doing the things you’ve been putting off due to the epidemic.’ We’ve all been waiting for this time to return to some kind of normalcy.’

President Joe Biden then held a press conference at 4 p.m. and tweeted about the new guidelines.
‘It’s now a simple rule: get a vaccination or wear a mask till you do.’ ‘The option is yours,’ he wrote on Twitter.

40,000 people visited vaccines.gov after Biden’s tweet, according to a source, which is the second-highest number since the website’s introduction on April 30.
