Finally! GOP Representative Introduces Bill Which Exempts Employees With Natural Immunity From Vaccine Mandate

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.

“President Biden’s overreaching mandate has severe ramifications for communities across the country, especially for communities like Central Washington who make up a large part of the federal workforce. Instead of forcing our federal workforce to choose between employment and vaccination, my bill provides them with an option – a permissible, science-based exception from President Biden’s recent Executive Order.”

With deadlines looming for federal workers and contractors to be vaccinated, Major unions have been quick to back the proposal with their support.

“The working families of the UA and our Building Trades have been on the front lines since the beginning of this pandemic, risking their families health and safety to ensure our Federal and State projects never missed a beat,”

“For our members, becoming vaccinated is a personal choice between them and their families, their doctor, and their faith,” continued Bumpaous. “The narrow provisions required under this current executive order places our members between that intimate personal choice and their ability to earn a living for their families.

“Reportedly, some 75 million workers in private workplaces across the country continue to show resistance or reluctance to the COVID-19 vaccines,”
