Project Veritas’ fourth video in its COVID vaccine investigative series quotes two Pfizer scientists who said natural immunity is better than Pfizer’s vaccine, and one who called the company “evil” and said it’s “run on COVID money.”
The CDC estimates that SARS-CoV-2 has infected more than 100 million Americans, and evidence is mounting that natural immunity is at least as protective as vaccination. Yet public health leadership says everyone needs the vaccine.
Military Service Members With Natural Immunity File Lawsuit Against DOD, FDA, HHS Over COVID Vaccine Mandate
Two active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces on Aug. 17 filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on behalf of themselves and 220,000 active service members who are being forced to get a COVID vaccine despite having had COVID and acquired natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2.
Kim Iversen Tackles Aaron Rodgers Controversy, Calls Out NFL on Natural Immunity, Vaccine ‘Segregation’
On the latest episode of The Hill’s “Rising,” journalist and political commentator Kim Iversen questioned the fairness of professional sport’s COVID rules that ignore natural immunity and segregate the vaccinated — who can still get and spread COVID — from the unvaccinated.
During a Sept. 30 U.S. Senate hearing, Sen. Rand Paul, (R-Ky.), went head to head with Health and Human Services Sec. Xavier Becerra, who isn’t a medical doctor nor a scientist, for ignoring the science of natural immunity.
Fully Vaccinated With Pfizer? You’re 6 to 13 Times More Likely to Get Delta Than Someone With Natural Immunity, Study Says
In the largest real-world observational study comparing natural immunity gained through previous SARS-CoV-2 infection to vaccine-induced immunity afforded by the Pfizer vaccine, people who recovered from COVID were much less likely than never-infected, vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms or be hospitalized.
George Mason Univ. Caves to Lawsuit, Grants COVID Vaccine Medical Exemption to Professor With Natural Immunity
George Mason University reversed its decision denying law professor Todd Zywicki a medical exemption from the university’s COVID vaccine mandate, after Zywicki and the New Civil Liberties Alliance sued the institution for violating Zywicki’s rights under Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Physician Speaks Out Against ‘Vaccine Mandates for All’ — Especially Children and Those With Natural Immunity
In an interview with U.S. News & World Report, Dr. Marty Makary said the CDC’s relentless focus on vaccine-induced immunity and its “demonizing” of those who choose not to get the vaccine make the agency “the most slow, reactionary, political CDC in American history.”
Civil Rights Group Sues George Mason University on Behalf of Professor Required to Get COVID Vaccine Despite Having Natural Immunity
The New Civil Liberties Alliance’s lawsuit says George Mason University’s attempt to interfere with Professor Zywicki’s bodily autonomy, with no legitimate rationale for doing so, not only violates medical ethics, but also fundamental rights protected in the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.
Peter Parada, drummer for the California-based band, Offspring, was dropped from the band’s upcoming tour because — on the recommendation of his doctor — he refused to get the COVID vaccine, since he has a history of Guillain–Barré syndrome and already has natural immunity to COVID.
U.S. COVID Vaccine Policy Threatens Civil Liberties of Millions of Unvaccinated People Who Have Natural Immunity
Millions of naturally immune Americans are poised to become an underclass — underserved, unemployed, excluded from their civil liberties and education, and scoffed at as being “stupid” — unless they conform and get a potentially dangerous vaccination they very likely stand to gain no benefit from.
Physician: ‘Fanaticism’ — Not Science — Governs CDC’s Aggressive Push to Vaccinate Even Those With Natural Immunity
Public health insiders increasingly are calling out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over the “insanity” of pushing COVID vaccines on people who have already acquired natural immunity.
In an interview with Alliance for Natural Health International, epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski, Ph.D., says shielding the most vulnerable from a virus, while letting the infection run its course through healthy populations, is the fastest way to achieve herd immunity.
Stories about vaccines in the popular press tend to be unabashedly one-sided, generally portraying vaccination as a universal (and essential) “good” with virtually no down side. This unscientific bias is particularly apparent in news reports about measles, which often are little more than hysterical diatribes against the unvaccinated.
Herd immunity is a concept by which an infectious agent can no longer spread across a population because a sufficiently large percentage of individuals have immunity, either from a history of exposure to the wild-type of the infectious agent, or due to acquired immunity from vaccination with a vaccine designed to protect against the wild-type. From an individual perspective, herd immunity can afford protection to one who is not immune.
Why Kids’ Immune Systems Can Handle COVID, and How Vaccines Could Compromise Their Natural Immune Response
Given the almost “zero” risk COVID poses to children, and based on the scientific evidence, epidemiologist and researcher Paul Elias Alexander, Ph.D. says we “are playing a dangerous game and are weakening formerly healthy robust immune systems.”
Studies Confirm Pfizer Vaccine Immunity Wanes at 2 Months, as Pharma Giant Seeks FDA Approval for Kids 5 to 11
A study from Israel covering 4,800 healthcare workers showed antibody levels waned rapidly after two doses of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine. Meanwhile, Pfizer today officially asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to authorize its vaccine for children 5 to 11 years old.
A paper published Sept. 30, in Eurosurveillance showed COVID spread rapidly by a fully vaccinated patient to fully vaccinated staff, patients and family members — despite a 96% vaccination rate and use of full personal protective equipment. Five patients died and nine had severe cases.
Mounting evidence shows natural immunity to COVID trumps vaccine immunity, but experts say the CDC is ignoring the long-standing science of natural immunity and manipulating data to support “what they’ve already decided.”
In a letter to the WSJ OpEd Board, Dr. Hooman Noorchashm said the board’s claim that people previously infected with COVID appear to be more susceptible to the Delta variant has “no basis in either current scientific epidemiological data or the fundamentals of immunology.”
U.S. College COVID Vaccine Mandates Don’t Consider Immunity or Pregnancy, and May Run Foul of the Law
Broad mandates in the civilian population of an unapproved Emergency Use Authorization product are unprecedented, and the legality may ultimately be answered in court.
COVID poses almost no risk to children. Yet the push is on to mandate COVID vaccines for all children, with little or no consideration for the health risks of the experimental vaccines.
In June 2020, the WHO changed its definition of herd immunity, stating the only way to achieve herd immunity is by vaccination. The new definition is inconsistent with long-established science which says herd immunity occurs when enough people acquire immunity to an infectious disease.
Dr. Alan Palmer examines the components of the immune system and the power of natural compounds and a healthy lifestyle in strengthening and maintaining an effective immune response against COVID-19.
Herd immunity is a largely theoretical concept, yet for decades, it has furnished one of the key underpinnings for vaccine mandates in the United States. The public health establishment borrowed the herd immunity concept from pre-vaccine observations of natural disease outbreaks.
As a country and a society, we’ve never been anywhere close to “herd immunity” through vaccination, but where are all the epidemics? That doesn’t keep vaccine makers from using herd immunity as a weapon to guilt and scare parents. Why are we allowing “mythology to trump science”?
Why Are We ‘Suddenly Rejecting Science by Forcing Vaccines on Absolutely Everyone?’ Asks The Hill’s Kim Iversen
Political commentator Kim Iversen says conventional science has always favored natural immunity when it comes to longer lasting and stronger protection against infection — so why are we now “suddenly rejecting science by forcing vaccines on absolutely everyone?”
