Law firm considers suing CDC for failing to consider natural immunity for vaccines

Vaccine and civil rights attorney Aaron Siri said during a Tuesday evening interview that his firm is considering a lawsuit against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for allegedly failing to take into account natural immunity to COVID-19 when it comes to rule-making and policy.

Siri’s comments to Fox News host Shannon Bream came in response to an earlier emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration to allow children ages 5-11 to receive the Pfizer COVID vaccine, in which one doctor on an FDA advisory panel suggested the only way to ultimately gauge the safety of the vaccine is by giving it to kids.

After noting that his firm has been “inundated” with vaccine injury claims, Siri said that one 12 year old who participated in a vaccine trial involving only about 1,100 kids “suffered a serious adverse event” after getting the vaccine, winding up in a wheelchair.

“People get injured from vaccines, it happens,” Siri said. “But the most troubling part of this story is what Pfizer and the FDA did after she was injured. They tried to brush it under the rug.”

Moving on, Bream said that at one point, the CDC was tracking “natural immunity” to the virus but has since stopped doing so, going on to cite a recent report by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson who wrote that the issue is “relevant because a growing body of study says that natural immunity is proving as effective or far more effective than vaccine-induced immunity.”

“Yet, the federal government is requiring millions of naturally immune people to get the COVID-19 vaccines,” Attkisson continued.

Siri said that over the summer, his firm “formally petitioned the CDC” on behalf of a client “demanding that they support their position that those that have natural immunity cannot afford the same liberties that the CDC says those that have vaccine immunities can have.”

He went on to say that the agency blew off the inquiry for months before finally responding and citing a small study in Kentucky to support their positions while ignoring dozens of others allegedly showing that natural immunity to COVID-19 is better at preventing infection than vaccine immunity.

“We’ve now responded to the CDC and if they refuse to lift the restrictions on the naturally immune in the same manner they do those with vaccine immunity, we do intend to file a lawsuit on behalf of our client,” Siri said.

In July, Siri told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that the family of a 16-year-old girl filed a lawsuit against the District of Columbia over a statute allowing minors to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine without their parents’ consent.

Siri said the teen, who was not from D.C., went to the city to get a COVID vaccine so she could attend summer camp.

“My client’s daughter did previously suffer a serious adverse reaction to a pertussis vaccine when she was five years old,” said the attorney, noting further that the teen “wasn’t aware of that when she went to her doctor” in D.C.

“So she wasn’t aware to tell her doctor about that reaction to the pertussis vaccine,” he said.
