Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has taken a ton of criticism from the left for his stance on how COVID is transmitted. The Senator has said from the beginning that if you have had the virus, your chances of having a better immunity against it are pretty great. Paul has fought hard against mask mandates calling them a massive ‘over-reach’ from the government.
Now, science has proven Paul right and the Senator didn’t hesitate to clack back at the media who mocked him:
Paul tweeted, “To every snot-nosed “journalist” who accosted me in the halls of Congress and spouted Fauci-isms denigrating natural immunity— read the science! Harvard Epidemiologist Says the Case for COVID Vaccine Passports Was Just Demolished – FEE”

A newly published medical study found that infection from COVID-19 confers considerably longer-lasting and stronger protection against the Delta variant of the virus than vaccines.
“The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study that some scientists wish came with a ‘Don’t try this at home’ label,” the Scientific American reported Thursday. “The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.”
Put another way, vaccinated individuals were 27 times more likely to get a symptomatic COVID infection than those with natural immunity from COVID.
“People who have had COVID already have significantly more protection from the virus than people who’ve been vaccinated. Meanwhile, people who’ve not had COVID and choose to not get vaccinated may or may not be making an unwise decision. But if they are, they are principally putting only themselves at risk.”
