Professor sues George Mason University over COVID vaccine mandate
Todd Zywicki, a professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, and Fox News medical contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier discuss natural immunity as a form of protection.
Todd Zywicki, a professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, is suing George Mason University over the university’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, arguing that he already contracted the novel coronavirus and believes he is protected due to natural immunity.
“I did get COVID and now my college wants to make me get vaccinated in order to do my job and the evidence is clear on this, which is that natural immunity is as least as good as, if not better protection against COVID infection than any of the vaccines that are on the market,” Zywicki argued on “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
He pointed out that he has “been working with an immunologist” and had several antibody tests, which he said showed “that my immune protection is very high.”
Zywicki, who has taught at the Antonin Scalia School of Law since 1998, filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, arguing that the university’s policy is “unmistakably coercive” and an “unlawful mandate,” Reuters reported.
“The CDC has to stop speaking in hyperbole,” she stressed.
“Historically they have [the CDC has] always accepted natural immunity as a form of protection when it comes to chickenpox, Hepatitis B, measles and others,” Saphier continued. “The CDC needs to start getting on board, following the science [and] acknowledge natural immunity as a legitimate form of protection.”
A CDC spokesperson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
