Some GOP states carve out "natural immunity" COVID vaccine exceptions

Republican lawmakers in several states have launched efforts to add exemptions to vaccine requirements for people with so-called "natural immunity" from a previous COVID-19 infection. They're doing so despite evidence that vaccination can cut the risk of COVID-19 even for survivors of the disease, and the fact that there's no easy way to measure the protection offered by a prior infection.

"Unlike what you see going on with some of the federal proposed mandates, other states, is we're actually doing a science-based approach," Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said last week.

The Florida Republican signed a bill he touted as the strongest "anti-mandate action taken by any state." It includes "medical evidence that the employee has immunity to COVID-19" among a list of exemptions employers must allow in their COVID vaccination policies.

"We recognize people that have natural immunity. You have natural immunity. Whatever a private employer wants to do, you're automatically exempt because of natural immunity," said DeSantis.


Are they going to give the Kenneth Copeland exception too?

1. Natural immunity, no problem

Flaunt it if you've got it, but show us your test.
We want to see lab-proof of your anti-bodies.
Take a jab, we'll draw your blood, test it in a lab, as we call your bluff.
