George Mason University Professor Sues School Over Vaccine Mandate

A law professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School has filed a lawsuit against the university on Monday in opposition to the school’s mandatory vaccine requirement, the Daily Caller reports.

The professor, Todd Zywicki, says that he already caught and recovered from the coronavirus, and thus has developed a natural immunity that should preclude him from receiving the vaccine.

“The evidence is clear on this,” Zywicki said in an interview with Fox & Friends, “which is that natural immunity is at least as good as, if not better protection against COVID infection than any of the vaccines that are on the market.”

“I did get COVID, and now my college wants to make me get vaccinated in order to do my job,” he added.

According to the lawsuit, there is no “compelling governmental interest in overriding Professor Zywicki’s personal autonomy and constitutional rights by forcing him, in essence, to either be vaccinated or to suffer adverse professional consequences.” The complaint also notes that, while the vaccine will not increase Zywicki’s immunity to the coronavirus from the infection he already received, there would be a “heightened risk for adverse side effects” if he got the vaccine.

Zywicki’s claims are backed up by the science, with Johns Hopkins professor Marty Makary saying that recovering from the virus itself makes one up to seven times more protected against a possible future infection than receiving the vaccine. There have been well over 10,000 confirmed cases of “breakthrough infections,” where individuals who received a vaccine still ultimately caught the coronavirus, thus confirming that the vaccines do not work in preventing the spread of the virus.

Despite this, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is still bizarrely recommending that everyone get a vaccine, even those who have already been infected, continuing to spread the debunked narrative that the vaccine is the ultimate protection against the virus. The CDC is also demanding a return to mask mandates, including for vaccinated individuals and children in K-12 schools.
