The University of California’s action against Kheriaty.

The modern dark age: The University of California has placed Dr. Aaron Kheriaty on administrative leave, preventing him from seeing any patients, because Kheriaty has sued the college for its vaccine mandate that refuses to recognize the documented stronger and safer effects of natural immunity over the COVID vaccines.
I was being placed on “Investigatory Leave” for my failure to comply with the vaccine mandate. I was given no opportunity to contact my patients, students, residents, or colleagues and let them know I would disappear for a month. Rather than waiting for the court to make a ruling on my case, the University has taken action.
…[H]alf of my income from the University comes from clinical revenues generated from seeing my patients, supervising resident clinics, and engaging in weekend and holiday on-call duties. So while on leave my salary is significantly cut. Furthermore, my contract stipulates that I am not able to conduct any patient care outside the University: to see my current patients, or to recoup my losses by moonlighting as a physician elsewhere, would violate the terms of my contract.
Kheriaty, who has had the Wuhan flu (along with his entire family) and now had natural immunity, opposes mandating a vaccine for such individuals because the costs far outweigh the benefits. As he writes:
Among the most glaring failures of our response to Covid is the refusal to acknowledge natural immunity of Covid recovered patients in our mitigation strategies, herd immunity estimates, and vaccine rollout plans. The CDC estimated that as of May 2021, more than 120 million Americans (36%) had been infected with Covid. With the more recent Delta variant wave, many epidemiologists estimate number is now closer to half of all Americans. The good news is that these Americans have immunity that is more durable and longer lasting than the vaccinated.
Among the many findings establishing this fact (and described in detail in our legal documents), one recent study directly compared natural immunity to those fully vaccinated with the Pfizer shot in a large population-based sample: fully vaccinated individuals were 6 to 13 times more likely to get infected than previously infected unvaccinated individuals; the risk of developing symptomatic Covid was 27 times higher among the vaccinated compared to previously infected, and the risk of hospitalization was 8 times higher. These findings are not surprising, since infection with the virus allows our body to form an immune response to many antigens (parts) on the virus, whereas the vaccines expose us only to one antigen, the spike protein. Furthermore, there is now considerable evidence that Covid recovered individuals may be at higher risk of vaccine adverse effects compared to those not previously infected (as seen in studies here, here, and here, among others). [emphasis mine]
In other words, the data unequivocally shows that if you are vaccinated against COVID, you are 27 times more likely to get it again, compared to someone who had it and recovered. Furthermore, getting the vaccine carries a real risk of adverse effects.
Based on this data, Kheriaty concluded that the costs of the vaccine far outweigh its benefits, most especially for the previously infected who have natural immunity, and those individuals above all should not be required to get the vaccine.
In today’s dark age, however, citing good research and making reasonable dissenting arguments is not permitted. Kheriaty found he was forced to sue the university because it refused to consider his arguments, in the slightest. Instead, the university responded by quickly moving to ban him, with the long term goal of getting him fired, as indicated by the university’s order above. Apparently, in academia today it is considered “misconduct” to have a dissenting opinion. Such is a “serious violation” of the edicts of our lords and masters, and thus must be punished.
In the rational America I grew up in, UC would quickly face major financial penalties for these oppressive actions. Judges and juries would have laughed them out of the court, while awarding Kheriaty big awards.
America however is no longer run by rational people. Do not be surprised if Kheriaty loses, because he dared challenge the orders of the irrational fools who now rule us.
Note too the highlighted words above. This so-called “deadly” disease has infected between 120 to 180 million Americans, with 99.6% of them surviving. Of those who died, the average age was 78, with most having one to three other serious chronic illnesses.
Like the flu, COVID kills almost no one by itself. In almost every case, like the flu people die because they are old and already very ill, and the coronavirus merely administers the final blow.
For everyone else, there is nothing to fear.
For this, the lives of people like Kheriaty — along with his patients! — are being destroyed.
