‘Once upon a time Anthony Fauci could tell the truth’ about natural immunity

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) observed that Dr. Anthony Fauci was once able to “tell the truth” about natural immunity — a reality the White House chief medical adviser has largely dismissed throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

“Hmmm… Once upon a time Anthony Fauci could tell the truth… What happened? Paul asked, referring to an older clip of Fauci on CSPAN, where the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) strongly defended the concept of natural immunity against disease.

When asked if someone who had the flu for 14 days needed a flu shot, Fauci replied, “Well, no. If she gets the flu for 14 days, she’s as protected as anyone can be because the best vaccination is to get it yourself.

“If she really does have the flu, she definitely doesn’t need a flu shot,” he continued, adding that “she doesn’t need it” because “the strongest vaccine is to get yourself infected”:

Indeed, Fauci has been reluctant to openly tout the reality of natural immunity throughout the pandemic, encouraging all eligible people to get vaccinated. It also proved to be one of the main issues among critics of the vaccination mandates, as they noted that the rules failed to take into account the reality of natural immunity. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who has fought attempts to force vaccines into the Sunshine State, also made this point about the mandate of the Biden administration’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). .

“The medical mandate for nurses and doctors…what they’re trying to do is absolutely insane,” he said at the time:

“So the nurses were rehired. All of these people, many of whom have natural immunity… but there is a shortage of staff because you obviously have a lot more COVID all over the country and then you have staff getting sick from it,” he continued. , further explaining the absurdity of the rule.

“In other states they fired nurses for not vaxing even though most of them are immune. So they fired them but now they are understaffed. So what do they do? bring vaccinated nurses who are currently COVID-positive back to work,” he said.

“So if you’re not vaccinated, naturally immune and not infected, you’re – they fire you, but if you’re COVID-positive and vaxed, which we know most people who are COVID-positive now are upset, they go back to work,” he marveled.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) also slammed Fauci for refusing to openly acknowledge natural immunity in the wake of the virus.

“When asked to comment on the effectiveness of natural immunity against the virus based on recent studies in Israel, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he didn’t have ‘a really firm answer’ to this topic,” Johnson said in a September 2021 statement.

Nearly 20 months into the pandemic, it’s shocking that the president’s chief medical adviser doesn’t have a good understanding of the effectiveness of natural immunity, yet still promotes freedom-restricting vaccine mandates. This administration clearly does not want the public to question whether natural immunity is more effective than vaccines. As President Biden tellingly stated, the vaccine mandate “is not about liberty or personal choice.”

“This administration’s decision to disregard the effectiveness of natural immunity and to require vaccination ignores current data and is an assault on the civil liberties of all Americans,” he added.
