In their race to vaccinate the entire U.S. adult population, health officials are urging everyone to get a COVID shot, regardless of whether or not they've already been infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and spending billions of dollars in taxpayer funded propaganda to convince people to get the vaccine.
This is an important distinction, however, with at least one scientist warning the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that "clear and present danger" exists for those who have had COVID-19 and subsequently get vaccinated.
That scientist — Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, a cardiac surgeon and patient advocate — warned the FDA that prescreening for SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins may reduce the risk of injuries and deaths following vaccination, as the vaccine may trigger an adverse immune response in those who have already been infected with the virus.1
Unfortunately, health agencies continue to assert that everyone should get vaccinated, even if they've already acquired natural immunity via previous infection.
CDC: Get Vaccinated Even if You've Had COVID
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention admits that it's rare to get sick again if you've already had COVID-19. Despite this, they say those who have recovered from COVID-19 should still get vaccinated:2
"You should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That's because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible — although rare — that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again."
