“Follow the science,” says our president, plus our governor and various health officials. Mandates are emphasized as following the science.
Yet there are an estimated 100 million citizens who survived covid-19 and have acquired natural immunity. Tests verify that this immunity is superior to the various vaccines; the shot is unnecessary. People who have natural immunity should not be forced to take a vaccine that does nothing for them except to expose them to some possible harmful effects. It is time for sanity from our leaders. To continue to ignore real science only contributes to a doubtful, untrusting citizenry.
Editor’s note: The most recent information, as of Aug. 6 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention following a study of infections in Kentucky, confirms that those previously infected with SAR-CoV-2 (covid-19) are twice as likely to be reinfected with covid-19 than those who are fully vaccinated after initially contracting the virus. “If you have had covid-19 before, please still get vaccinated,” said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. “This study shows you are twice as likely to get infected again if you are unvaccinated. Getting the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others around you, especially as the more contagious delta variant spreads around the country.”
