Immunity to COVID Will Get You a Vaccine Exemption With Spectrum Health
September 13, 2021 (1)
In an about-face in favor of persons who had COVID and now have natural
antibodies, Spectrum Health, Michigan, said it would lift vaccine
mandates for anyone who can prove they have natural immunity to
All individuals with a positive PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 plus a
positive antibody test from within the past three months can qualify
for the exemption. Spectrum also allows medical and religious
exemptions. The policy could change if future evidence shows natural
protection is either waning or longer-lasting, depending on the
circumstances, Spectrum said.
In reference, two different studies on natural immunity had different
outcomes. Cleveland Clinic, which isn’t making vaccination mandatory
for its employees, studied 50,000 of its employees and found that none
who had been previously infected were reinfected.
On the other hand, the CDC did a study in Kentucky of those with
previous infections but were unvaccinated as per CDC’s definition
versus those who had both natural infection and were vaccinated and
found that those who had natural infection but were not fully
vaccinated were 2.34 times as likely to get reinfected than those who
had both the infection and the shots.
The CDC had just 246 fully vaccinated patients in the case study and
nearly twice as many unvaccinated — 492 — in the control “unvaccinated”
group to come up with that number. The CDC’s definition of “fully”
vaccinated only applies to individuals who have received the full
recommended doses of vaccine, and then only if 14 days or more have
passed since receipt of the last dose.
