In line with the scientific data, those who understand natural immunity are calling for testing and using natural immunity data in lieu of manufactured COVID vaccines.
For example, On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said that people who have natural immunity from coronavirus due to a prior COVID infection shouldn’t be fired because they won’t get vaccinated as long as they test positive for COVID antibodies.

Having SARS-CoV-2 once confers much greater immunity than a vaccine—but vaccination remains vital. Israelis who had an infection were more protected against the Delta coronavirus variant than those who had an already highly effective COVID-19 vaccine
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 never-infected, vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19
Along with Senator Coons recommendations and research published by Michel Nussenzweig, an immunologist at Rockefeller University, it is encouraging to see that Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) introduced the Options Over Terminations Act. on October 26th.
His legislation would provide an exemption to any Federal COVID–19 vaccine mandate for any Federal employee or contractor who provides proof of COVID–19 antibodies.
