AND promote weight loss (maybe OPEN ALL GYMS and give incentives instead of close them) and healthy eating since the majority of people in hospital and dying are overweight.

FYI CS vaccines are not a savior, and there is no one size fits all solution for this or MOST problems.
Seem many Folks on the left, who don't have much time for religion, often pour fundamentalist fervor into SINGLE solutions to world problems.
"VACCINES are our one way to salvation, if you don't BELIEVE you're a heretic and a FOOL... and will die 100 times more in the fires of covid"
Sorry, but many don't buy that religion.
There are more than a few High priest and priestesses of science that have different views than "salvation by vaccine only".
not sure why you're so intolerant.
Vaccines work and materially mitigate the risks from COVID. Your support for all of your unproven alternative treatments does not require that you deny that simple fact.

Wouldn't it be great if Fauci and the CDC followed the actual science in regards to Natural Immunity for those with previous infections?

Oh wait, they finally did.

So much for the worship of the vaccine as the only way to survive Covid.

From your link: "Protection was highest among those who had both vaccination and prior Covid"

Almost everyone benefits from getting vaccinated, even those who have had COVID. Multiple studies have shown that the risk of reinfection is twice as high for those who have had COVID but were not vaccinated than among those who have had COVID and were also vaccinated.

Seems it's only you're vaccine fundamentalism that doesn't allow you to acknowledge or even examine objectively the now well established effectiveness of other treatments.

And "vaccines" are NOT the best benefit to risk option for most people, especially for those under 40.
With a 98.x% rate of general recovery for most people, And the 0.x% benefit and the long term unknown risk, IMO makes it questionable OVERALL.

But bottom line everyone should make that choice for themselves.
and not be badgered and threatened by gov't, schools, employers, shop keepers and karens.

The fact is that a person with natural immunity has a more durable immunity than someone with a vaccine only immunity. Therefore, the notion that I should be denied access to certain aspects of our society due to my lack of the jab even though I have a more durable immunity than someone that has the jab but has NOT recovered from a Covid infection, is ludicrous.

Exactly right! Since I have already beat Covid, and am more
protected than the "Vaccinated", Why should I be forced to get "The Shots"

Will the vaccinated start wearing arm bands showing their Vax status?

Or maybe a special tattoo on the forearm.
