Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted a study on natural immunity to COVID-19 has caused discussions among the medical community. In an appearance on Friday, Fauci was asked about recent research pointing to a previous COVID-19 infection offering better protection than vaccines.
When asked how to make a case for vaccination to someone who has recovered from COVID-19, Fauci admitted he didn’t have a “firm answer” on that. He noted the study didn’t say if natural protection would last as long as vaccinations, but it was something to be discussed.
He went on to say, “I think that is something that we need to sit down and discuss seriously because you very appropriately pointed out it is an issue and there could be an argument for saying what you said.”
What about natural immunity?

His comments come as Joe Biden has mandated vaccinations for federal employees and contractors who work with the government, with no option for testing.
