  1. Is there any study that shows natural immunity to not be significant? I would love to have Dr Paul and others who have reviewed the worldwide data to have a panel discussion with Dr Fauci and others who insist that vaccination for all is the best policy.
    Ask yourself who is ducking that discussion and you have a clue about who is correct.

  2. El oso, exactly.

    I would like to point out the exact wording of the Church statement on vaccinations, which says:

    “And we know that protection from the diseases they cause can only be achieved by immunizing a very high percentage of the population.”

    Immunizing means “to make immune.” There are two ways to make people immune, one through natural immunity creating antibodies and the other through vaccines. Even the CDC web site mentions the importance of natural immunity:


    Why is nobody talking about natural immunity to COVID?

    If we had a truly scientific approach to this pandemic (which we do not — we have a political approach), people would be considered immune if 1)they had caught the disease and had antibodies and 2)people were vaccinated. I had the disease and was recently tested, and I have antibodies. In fact, I have been exposed to the delta variant many times in the last six months, and I have not gotten sick.

    With current vaccines, natural immunity actually provides stronger protection, according to several recent studies. The vaccines apparently do not work very well in protecting people from the delta variant, but they do help people recover once they have caught the virus.

    Here is a summary of the studies:


    Should the vulnerable (older people, people with other high-risk conditions) get the vaccine? Of course, especially if they have not already had COVID and don’t have antibodies. That is part of immunization.
