During a Sept. 30 U.S. Senate hearing, Sen. Rand Paul, (R-Ky.), went head to head with Health and Human Services Sec. Xavier Becerra. Paul called out Becerra for ignoring the science of natural immunity.
Becerra, who is neither a medical doctor nor a scientist — Paul pointed out that Becerra doesn’t even have a degree in science — is traveling the country calling people “flat-earthers” for believing that if they’ve already had COVID they don’t need the vaccine, Paul said.
“We find that very insulting. It goes against the science,” Paul said. And, Paul added, Becerra is doing this in spite of an Israeli study of 2.5 million people that found the vaccinated group was actually seven times more likely to get infected with COVID than those with natural immunity from a previous infection.
