Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is advising Americans to ignore the CDC's most recent advice to continue wearing face masks in public even after getting vaccinated for COVID-19.

"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," Paul tweeted Monday night.

The senator was referencing a tweet from CNN noting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's latest guidelines released earlier Monday gave "limited freedoms to people fully vaccinated" against COVID-19.

"Here are the rules to keep following," the tweet advised.

Paul has come under fire from Senate Democrats for not wearing a mask on the Senate floor over the past several months. But Paul, the first member of the upper chamber to contract coronavirus in March 2020, maintained in May he was immune from catching COVID-19 since he had recently had it.

Health experts say immunity from contracting the virus lasts only a few months, but Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, complained Paul was not wearing a mask on the Senate floor this past February.
