COVID-19 Natural immunity more effective than vaccine, research suggests

volunteers for covid 19 vaccine needed

Natural Infection from COVID-19 offers a considerably stronger immunity from the illness and greater protection against the Delta variant of the virus than vaccines, according to a newly published medical study.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has publicly argued that natural immunity for those who contracted COVID-19 makes it unnecessary to get vaccinated. He said the new study conducted in Israel destroys the argument made by some state lawmakers, as well as controversial medical professionals, like Dr. Anthony Fauci, who advocate for vaccinations and the proposed requirement that all individuals carry vaccine cards as proof.

“To every snot-nosed ‘journalist’ who accosted me in the halls of Congress and spouted Fauci-isms denigrating natural immunity – read the science,” tweeted Paul. He posted the story on Twitter Monday.

According to the research reported reported in the Scientific American Thursday: “the natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study that some scientists wish came with a ‘Don’t try this at home’ label.”

“The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19,” the research stated.

According to the study “vaccinated individuals were 27 times more likely to get a symptomatic COVID infection than those with natural immunity from COVID.”

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
