Tennessee lawmakers are actually trusting the science of natural immunity.
The bill that was signed off by Tennessee lawmakers, will now recognize natural immunity as the same as the Covid-19 vaccine.
So in future pandemic outbreaks, people that have natural immunity will be still allowed to keep their jobs, and enter stores, and will not be discriminated against for not having a Covid-19 vaccine.
The bill would go on to say, “the immune protection gained from a prior COVID-19 infection is at least as protective against COVID-19 as a COVID-19 vaccine”.
Although lawmakers passed the bill, Republican Governor Bill Lee refused to sign off on the new bill but his refusal to put his signature on the bill does not negate the new law.
