If a person has had a previous Covid infection, they should have the option to refuse the vaccine, President Donald Trump insists.
Trump made the comments in support of natural immunity during an interview on Fox News’ Sean Hannity last week, slamming vaccine mandates for not allowing exceptions.
“You should not have to. If you get COVID or whatever you want to call it – plenty of names, ‘Wuhan virus,’ ‘the China virus,’ you can call it, we got plenty of names – but when you get it, you don’t…you shouldn’t have to be forced. They want to force people who have had it to have the vaccine, when in actuality, when you have it, you don’t need the vaccine. You become immune, so they say, and it’s rare that you get it twice. It is a natural immunity. Why are they forcing people to take the vaccine?
“Remember this, the drug companies make a lot of money, and they like it. I don’t know who else wants it or likes it, but when you get it, you don’t have to take the vaccine.”
