In December of 2021, many people around the world, including the author, contracted COVID-19. The virus was so severe that it caused the author to miss the Super Bowl in 2003, which was known as the ‘Gruden Bowl’. This was a blowout game, with then-Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden beating his former team 48-21. Due to the virus, the author had to skip Christmas with family.
Past Covid infection as protective as vaccination against severe illness and death, study finds https://t.co/NcBg33IpiP

In spring of the following year, the vaccine was rolled out and approved by President Trump, but was initially disavowed by Kamala Harris and other Democrats until they tried to take credit for it. This led to questions about natural immunity and those who had already had the virus. People who had survived the 1918 flu pandemic still had antibodies in their systems, but to question this meant being labeled as stupid, selfish, anti-science, or a Trump supporter.
The research published in The Lancet found that immunity acquired from a COVID infection provides strong, lasting protection against the most severe outcomes of the illness, which is on par with what’s provided through two doses of an mRNA vaccine. This protection against severe disease and death after infection was found to be sustained for at least 10 months.
Despite this research, experts still stress that vaccination is the preferable route to immunity due to the risks of COVID. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others tried to dispel natural immunity in order to increase the profit margins for Moderna and Pfizer. Unfortunately, should something happen due to taking the vaccine, people cannot sue and the data from these pharmaceutical companies about their COVID concoction will not be available for another century.
It is important to remember that whenever “the experts” are stressing about something, it is best to ignore it. Natural immunity is a real science that should not be disregarded. People should be aware of the risks associated with taking the vaccine and make an informed decision before doing so.
