Millions of people who got the first Covid-19 mRNA vaccine have skipped out on the second dose, leading health experts to fear the U.S. will never reach herd immunity.

Nearly 8% of those who got the first injection of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, have missed their second doses, according to the CDC.

There is speculation that some people who received the first injection either died or suffered serious adverse effects, causing them to skip the second dose.

Senator Rand Paul, a licensed doctor, blames the White House and the CDC for fear mongering and sending confusing messages.

"If I want to go visit the White House, Republicans, and Democrats who go visit, even though they've all been vaccinated or had the disease, they're being tested with a deep sinus test," Paul told Fox News.

"And they're being told to wear the N95 masks to go in the White House, even though they've all been vaccinated," he said.

"So, there is no science behind any of this. It's fear-mongering. But it also has a deleterious effect, in that it's discouraging people from getting the vaccine because they’re saying, well, if the vaccine doesn't mean anything, it doesn't seem to have any protective benefit, you get no benefit."

Rand also questioned why vaccinated people are forced to continue wearing face masks.

If people cannot "quit wearing the mask," why they should get vaccinated at all?, Paul said.

It was business as usual for Kentucky Senator Rand Paul who attended 3 fundraisers and worked out in the Senate gym after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to The Washington Post, the 57-year old politician worked out in the Senate gym on Sunday morning, and has been going about his daily business despite the positive diagnosis.

Paul, like other notables who are infected with the flu-like virus, has no symptoms and says he feels fine.

Most people believe the nation's overreaction to the coronavirus causes more harm than the virus itself.

Paul's office did not respond to an email from The Fix requesting the date he took the test, nor did the office staff provide an answer to that question from The Washington Post.

One of Paul's colleagues expressed outrage over his lackadaisical attitude toward the virus.

"This, America, is absolutely irresponsible," tweeted Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) on Sunday. "You cannot be near other people while waiting for coronavirus test results. It endangers others & likely increases the spread of the virus."

Paul is the First U.S. senator to test positive for COVID-19. Two other Congressmen also tested positive for COVID-19 and numerous others have self-isolated after coming in contact with infected colleagues.

Despite the extreme measures being undertaken in Democratic cities, the fatality rate for the virus is still around 1% and decreasing daily. Many say the mass hysteria is unwarranted and unprecedented.

President Trump said his administration will take two weeks to decide on the next course of action to combat the virus.

Noting that the anti-malarial drug Chloroquine has serious side effects for Black people, Trump tweeted: "WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!"
