Congresswoman Diana Harshbarger introduced the Natural Immunity is Real Act today in Congress. Harshbarger stated that this “bill requires Federal agencies to take into account naturally acquired immunity from previous COVID-19 infection when issuing any rules or regulations aimed at protecting from COVID-19.” She further noted, “the Biden Administration must ‘follow the science’ and be open, honest, and transparent about the millions of Americans who have natural immunity against the COVID-19 virus.”
“I’ve always said we need to use all the clinical tools as protection and treatment options to combat COVID-19. However, my bill is a necessary and timely legislative action resulting from President Biden’s continued politicization of COVID-19 which continues to create deep divisions among Americans, such as when he chillingly said his national vaccine mandate requirements are ‘not about freedom or personal choice.’ Now more than ever, we need to pursue every scientific measure — such as natural immunity — that can help mitigate the pandemic without threatening people’s jobs, our economy, or denying Americans access to everyday life activities based on COVID-19 vaccination status.”Congresswoman Diana Harshbarger
