In China, travelers need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have obtained proof of vaccination to apply for visas. The communist nation even provides easier visa application procedures with looser requirements for people who were vaccinated using Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccines.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires non-citizens and non-immigrant passengers alike arriving from a foreign country by air to present proof of vaccination. Worse yet, the CDC's guidelines for incoming air travelers does not recognize those with natural immunity. (Related: After destroying American society, the CDC admits natural immunity works better than COVID jabs.)
"At this time all non-citizen, non-immigrant air passengers traveling to the United States, regardless of antibody status, are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination," reads the CDC's page on COVID-19 vaccination requirements for air travelers entering the country.
Multiple studies since nearly the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccine rollouts in late 2020 have proven that natural immunity to COVID-19, acquired through previous infection, is far superior to any so-called immunity provided by the experimental and ineffective COVID-19 vaccines.
One such study was released in late September by the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet, one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world.
The study, conducted by researchers from Quebec and British Columbia in Canada, found: "Previous omicron BA.1 primary infection alone was the single most protective factor against BA.2 reinfection (risk reduction of 72 percent), and was associated with higher protection than pre-omicron primary infection alone (38 percent), or even than three doses of mRNA vaccine in people with no previous infection (46 percent)."
"Receiving natural immunity is better than three mRNA doses – that's two primary doses and a booster," commented investigative journalist Jefferey Jaxen on "The Highwire with Del Bigtree."
In response to this study, the government of Canada has lifted COVID-19 mask, testing and ArriveCan – a digital vaccine passport – requirements for people entering the country. Air Canada, the country's flag carrier and largest airline, welcomed the decision, saying the reduction in travel requirements is desperately needed for the benefit of travelers and the economy.
Canada is not the only country with data supporting both the strength of natural immunity and the weakness of so-called vaccine immunity.
In the United Kingdom, one study also published by The Lancet found that people with higher body mass indexes who got vaccinated with one or two doses of the COVID-19 vaccines had "a higher risk of test positivity after vaccination," proving that the vaccines actually lowered their immunity.
In Sweden, a preprint study published in SSRN found that its results were similar to the previously mentioned U.K. study, "albeit with even more rapidly waning effectiveness." The study found that "vaccinated individuals experienced a higher risk of infection [to the omicron variant] than those unvaccinated."
Both Sweden and the United Kingdom have relaxed many of their requirements for travelers entering their respective countries.
"We have talked about this so much. The vaccine is helping you get infected," commented Bigtree. "What negative efficacy means, you're doing worse than had you not had anything at all. Which means somehow it's better for your immune system to be more vulnerable, the exact opposite of what a product like this is supposed to be doing to you."
