In January 2021, Biden took office and began to roll out the mRNA COVID vaccine to the masses.
The shot that Kamala Harris originally disavowed because Trump greenlit it, the administration was trying to take credit for.
When the roll-out took place, I had recently just gotten over COVID and had a question that many others had.
What about natural immunity?
Why? Because real science often shows once you recover from an illness, most have at the minimum, some sort of immunity. Plus, being that I had just recovered and the jab was so new, nobody knew if there would be potential side effects for those who had a previous infection.
So I held off and just waited to see what happened.
As the country moved through 2021, the Biden administration became more aggressive with mandates and, in September of 2021, announced a mandatory vaccine mandate for all working Americans.
Even before the official mandate employers (especially in healthcare) were forcing Americans to get vaccinated regardless of prior infection. “Do your part!?” They insisted on calling people extremists and selfish.
So much stupidity, so little time. The @washingtonpost is the best, though: religious studies professor @AlanLevinovitz telling us “antibodies to the coronavirus are not better just because they are ‘natural.’”

I know many that didn’t want the jab but couldn’t risk losing their job. They were angry when got the jab and many of them are fuming now.
A recent NBC News report has confirmed that immunity “acquired from a COVID infection provides strong, lasting protection against the most severe outcomes of the illness.”
From NBC News:
Immunity acquired from a Covid infection provides strong, lasting protection against the most severe outcomes of the illness, according to research published Thursday in The Lancet — protection, experts say, that’s on par with what’s provided through two doses of an mRNA vaccine.
Infection-acquired immunity cut the risk of hospitalization and death from a Covid reinfection by 88% for at least 10 months, the study found.
“This is really good news, in the sense that protection against severe disease and death after infection is really quite sustained at 10 months,” said the senior study author, Dr. Christopher Murray, the director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.
The findings may be a small silver lining to the explosive omicron outbreak of last winter. With so many people infected, many most likely still benefit from that protection against severe disease, Murray said.
Still, experts stress that vaccination is the preferable route to immunity, given the risks of Covid, particularly in unvaccinated people.
2/ This is a good reminder that @ASlavitt @ScottGottliebMD and the White House didn’t force Twitter to ban me in 2021 because I was wrong or a conspiracy theorist. They forced Twitter to ban me because I wasn’t. They’ve lost Twitter, but Facebook will still play this rigged game.
