New Tennessee Law: Natural Immunity Against COVID-19 Must Be Recognized
(by Michelle Edwards | Uncover DC) – A bill declaring prior COVID-19 infections—and thus natural immunity—must be treated the same as having received a COVID-19 “vaccine” has become law in Tennessee.
The bill states, “the immune protection gained from a prior COVID-19 infection is at least as protective against COVID-19 as a COVID-19 vaccine.” It continues, adding, “there is, therefore, no rational basis to treat individuals who have had a previous COVID-19 infection differently than individuals who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.”

The legislation became law on Apr. 29 without Governor Bill Lee’s signature. Gov. Lee intentionally declined to sign the bill, stating in a letter to Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally and House Speaker Cameron Sexton:
“I write to inform you that I am letting SB 1982 / HB 1871 become law without my signature. Although I agree that individuals with acquired immunity should be treated the same as individuals who are vaccinated against COVID-19, this bill imposes a business mandate, and businesses should be allowed to operate without undue government interference.”
The measure was sponsored by Rep. Bud Hulsey (R-Kingsport) and Sen. Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald), who is a physician. The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 26-5 and the House with a vote of 66-20. Read Full Article >
