COVID-19 vaccine mandates are not supported by science, says top doctor
08/10/2021 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

A prominent doctor from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine argued that mandating the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines is not supported by science.

Many within the medical community are pushing back against the relentless drive to mandate the experimental and side effect-riddled COVID-19 vaccines. One of the prominent people lending their voices to this opposition is Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins and the editor-in-chief of a notable medical news website.

Studies do not support mask mandates

In an interview with U.S. News and World Reports, Makary flat out stated that the COVID-19 vaccines should not be required for all Americans.

"Those who choose not to get vaccinated … pose no public health threat to those already immune," said Makary.

The physician pointed out how hypocritical it is to impose health choices upon Americans when similarly dangerous actions, such as extreme alcohol consumption, are allowed to occur.

"Would we be so stern toward people making similar or worse health choices to smoke, drink alcohol or not wear a helmet when riding a bike?" Makary asked. "Over 85,000 Americans die annually from alcohol, yet we don't have the same public health fervor or requirements to save those lives."

Makary also stated that public health officials and government agencies were ignoring the millions of Americans who already have natural immunity due to prior COVID-19 infection. He added that there is no scientific evidence to support mandating vaccines for those with natural immunity.


He said many public researchers have tried to argue with him regarding natural immunity. These researchers falsely believe that the effectiveness and durability of natural immunity are insufficient and COVID-19 vaccines are necessary.

"But here we are now, over a year and a half into the clinical experience of observing patients who were infected, and natural immunity is effective and going strong," he said. "And that's because with natural immunity, the body develops antibodies to the entire surface of the virus."

Makary pointed to a study done by the Cleveland Clinic that found that vaccinating people with natural immunity did not augment their level of protection against COVID-19 in any way.

Makary also against mask mandates for kids

During his interview with U.S. News and World Reports, Makary argued against mandatory vaccinations for the young and healthy.

He said the relentless drive to vaccinate younger segments of the population lies in the false assumption that the risk of people catching and dying from COVID-19 is equally distributed in the population.

"We have always known that it's very hard for the virus to hurt someone who is young and healthy," he said.

Makary extended this logic to mask mandates for kids in schools, voicing his opposition to school mask mandates on Fox News on Monday, August 7.

"Kids, they're very inefficient transmitters [of COVID-19]," he said during the Fox News show "America's Newsroom."

Makary's comments came after he made a case against school mask mandates for children in an opinion piece published by the Wall Street Journal.

In the piece, Makary and his co-author pointed to a study from North Carolina conducted before COVID-19 vaccines were widely available. This study did not find a single case of student-to-teacher transmission in 90,000 schoolchildren while they were in school.

Makary went on Fox News after he received intense backlash for his opposition to school mask mandates.

He explained that there are a lot of kids in areas of the United States that have low levels of COVID-19 transmission. School mask mandates in these areas of the country do not make sense.

"So, for kids who do well with masks, feel free to wear a mask," he said. "For kids who struggle, we have to individualize and think about a carve-out that gives them and their parents the option to not wear it because the risk-benefit ratio isn't there."

As the post-vaccine delta variant of the coronavirus continues to spread through the U.S. with the help of fully vaccinated individuals, more and more groups are pushing for mandatory vaccinations and masking. Makary is one of the few prominent voices using science to oppose these.
