According to a lawyer representing Navy SEALs, the United States military is ignoring natural immunity by following Joe Biden’s moronic orders. He’s not wrong.
“My clients are seeing for the first time in the military natural immunity is not being recognized as a reason for an exemption to a vaccine,” R. Davis Younts, the lawyer, said on EpochTV’s “Crossroads.”
“So it’s very strange and I think it’s reasonable for my clients to ask the question, ‘why is natural immunity demonstrated by positive serology being ignored for this vaccine but it’s not for others?‘” he added.
The military regulations outline how medical exemptions to required vaccines can be granted because of “evidence of immunity based on serologic tests, documented infections, or similar circumstances.”
However the Covid-19 vaccine mandate, which is being imposed on both active-duty and civilian Pentagon employees, does not contain that provision. Of course it doesn’t.
A new memorandum issued by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin back in August says that all service members must get fully vaccinated against the virus that causes Covid-19.
“Those with previous COVID-19 infection are not considered fully vaccinated,” he said.
An Oct. 1 memo from another senior Pentagon official concerning civilian employees says that “those with previous COVID-19 infection(s) or previous serology are not considered fully vaccinated on that basis for the purposes of this mandate.”
The Navy then referred The Epoch Times to the Pentagon, who then of course refused to answer emailed questions, including why natural immunity is not being considered a reason for medical exemption to the Covid-19 vaccine mandates.
Natural immunity refers to when a person has protection against an illness due to prior infection. In this case, it means protection against COVID-19, which causes COVID-19.
A lawsuit has now been filed against Secretary Austin and other officials and was filed last month. The two active duty service members cited Army Regulation 40-562, which states that prior infection is a reason for medical exemption, in nothing they have natural immunity.
Younts is representing SEALs who have been told they will no longer be deployable if they don’t get the jab.
Imagine screwing with your elite Special Forces teams over this bullshit agenda? Unbelievable isn’t it?
“Ultimately, one of their main concerns is the sense that they have a conviction to be very careful and thoughtful what they put into their bodies. These are Navy SEALS, right? And they think it’s reasonable to ask the question, ‘why is this vaccine being treated differently?’ We don’t have long-term 5- and 10-year safety studies on the mRNA vaccine,” Younts said.
“They’re asking the question, ‘isn’t there a risk that they’re creating to other people if they get a vaccine that has been shown in some studies to have not just breakthrough cases, but also high viral loads and potentially viral shedding?‘” he added.
Another complaint involves nuances on how the vaccines have been treated by regulators. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Pfizer’s shot. But the approved version wasn’t available in early September, and there were no plans to make it available in the near future.
“When will the actual FDA-approved vaccine be available for military members?” Younts asked.
A Navy spokesperson told The Epoch Times that no exemption applications have been approved or denied yet. The spokesperson referred The Epoch Times to the Pentagon for other questions. The Pentagon did not answer whether it has obtained doses of Cominarty, the approved version of Pfizer’s shot. The FDA referred The Epoch Times to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Health and Human Services, neither of which responded to requests for comment. Pfizer did not return inquiries.
