Dr. Drew Interview: Natural Immunity vs. Vaccine Immunity
The basic scientific truth that I was fired for defending in 2021 is now widely reported as "news" by NBC and other legacy media outlets. Sometimes tough being a year-and-a-half ahead of the curve.
Links above to the video on YouTube and the audio podcast. From the Show Notes:
"Immunity generated from an infection was found to be at least as high, if not higher, than that provided by two doses of an mRNA vaccine," reads a report by NBC. In the past, similar statements resulted in the deplatforming of experts – including bioethicist Dr. Aaron Kheriaty.
“Immunity acquired from a Covid infection is as protective as vaccination against severe illness and death, study finds,” proclaimed NBC News in a headline published on February 16, 2023. “The immunity generated from an infection was found to be “at least as high, if not higher” than that provided by two doses of an mRNA vaccine.”
In the past, similar statements have resulted in the deplatforming of countless medical experts – including bioethicist Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, whose refusal of a COVID-19 vaccination (after recovering from a past infection) led to the loss of his job at UC Irvine medical school.
Thus in the spirit of fairness, NBC’s broadcasting license was immediately revoked, their social media profiles were suspended, and NBC was fired from its job. Or perhaps not.
Dr. Aaron Kheriaty is a psychiatrist, the director of the program in Bioethics and American Democracy at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C., and the director of the Health and Human Flourishing program at the Zephyr Institute in Palo Alto, California.
He formerly taught psychiatry at the UCI School of Medicine, was the director of the Medical Ethics Program at UCI Health, and was the chairman of the ethics committee at the California Department of State Hospitals. Dr. Kheriaty’s work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New Atlantis, Arc Digital, Public Discourse, City Journal, and First Things.
