CDC Admits It Has No Record of an Unvaxxed Person Spreading COVID After Recovering from COVID Naturally

“A search of our records failed to reveal any documents not pertaining to your request”—CDC

QUICK FACTS:
  • Siri & Glimstad attorney Elizabeth Brehm of New York filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, asking the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide documentation of cases in which a person who had recovered from Covid-19 naturally became reinfected and spread the disease to others.
  • Attorney Brehm sent in her FOIA request on September 2, 2021, to the CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (CDC/ATSDR).
  • Brehm’s request asked for, “Documents reflecting any documented case of an individual who: (1) never received a COVID-19 vaccine; (2) was infected with COVID-19 once, recovered, and then later became infected again; and (3) transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to another person when reinfected.”
  • The CDC responded to Brehm’s request, revealing that the agency has no record of an unvaccinated person spreading COVID after recovering from COVID themselves, nor do they collect such information.
  • CDC FOIA Officer Roger Andoh replied, “A search of our records failed to reveal any documents pertaining to your request. The CDC Emergency Operations Center (EOC) conveyed that this information is not collected.”
  • Some speculate such information—or lack thereof—could provide a reasonable legal argument for lawyers defending clients who are refusing vaccine mandates on the grounds of natural immunity.
  • Siri & Glimstad’s website claims it’s helped “hundreds of individuals” obtain vaccine exemptions and fight back against various employer Covid-19 mandates.
  • Aaron Siri, Managing Partner of Siri & Glimstad and lawyer for The Epoch Times who filed another FOIA request for additional information from the CDC on the matter, wrote in a blog post, “You would assume that if the CDC was going to crush the civil and individual rights of those with natural immunity by having them expelled from school, fired from their jobs, separated from the military, and worse, the CDC would have proof of at least one instance of an unvaccinated, naturally immune individual transmitting the COVID-19 virus to another individual.” “If you thought this, you would be wrong,” Siri quipped.
READ THE CDC’S RESPONSE:
BACKGROUND:
  • A publication in the journal Science concluded that natural immunity provides better protection from coronavirus than do vaccines. “The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine,” reads the publication.
  • One Israeli study found that those who received the two-dose vaccine were as much as 13 times more likely to fall ill with the delta coronavirus variant than those who were naturally immune.
  • Dr. Paul Elias Alexander compiled a list of 123 research studies showing that naturally acquired immunity “is equal to or more robust and superior to existing vaccines.”
  • Dr. Alexander compiled another list of 21 studies showing how vaccine mandates “aren’t based on science.”

The Biden administration, in tandem with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has mandated that companies with more than 100 employees force their workers to get vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit to weekly testing. Companies that fail to comply by Jan 4 could face up to $13,653 in fines per violation. But the mandate has been blocked (here) by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
