This August 4, 2021, article published by The Bakersfield Californian reports on the lawsuit filed by the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA) against George Mason University (GMU). The lawsuit was filed on behalf of “Antonin Scalia Law School Professor Todd Zywicki against GMU’s unconstitutional reopening policy” which requires all unvaccinated faculty, including those who can demonstrate natural immunity through recovery from prior COVID infection, to disclose their vaccination status as a “prerequisite for eligibility for any merit pay increase”.
Professor Zywicki recovered from COVID-19 and has confirmed his immunity through multiple SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests. Prof. Zywicki’s immunologist, Dr. Hooman Noorchashm advised him that the COVID vaccine was medically unnecessary for him, based on his personal health and immunity status. Prof. Zywicki states that GMU’s rules for unvaccinated employees will diminish his efficacy in performing his professional responsibilities, and in effect, is coercing him to take the vaccine.
Through this lawsuit, the NCLA urges the Court to issue a declaratory judgment to uphold Prof. Zywicki’s right to bodily integrity and to refuse unnecessary medical treatment. Drs. Jay Bhattacharya, Martin Kulldorff, and Noorchashm have issued affidavits in support of Prof. Zywicki’s case.
Editor’s Note: This case is important because it will force the courts to review the evidence for natural immunity. If the decision on this case is in favor of Prof. Zywicki, health agencies will need to modify their coronavirus regulation in relation to those who have recovered from COVID-19. If people are being granted vaccine passports that are less effective than protection from natural immunity, then it is scientifically justifiable and ethically just that institutions should also accept evidence for natural immunity.
We wish to reiterate that if a person has recovered from COVID, they do not need to take the vaccine. Their immune defenses are strong enough to neutralize the virus and to protect the body from variants of SARS-CoV-2 [see Your immune system can protect you from COVID and all its future variants, anyone who says otherwise is lying, Study of 10-million person-identifiable PCR-test in Denmark shows young people protected from SARS-CoV-2 reinfection, COVID-recovered patients are protected from reinfection, no need to discriminate against them, and New study from Cleveland Clinic shows vaccine provides no added benefit to those who already had COVID]. When the immune system is strong, it can also prevent reinfection as well as prevent severe complications in the case of reinfection.
