Legislation would require reporting of new cases following an initial infection with COVID-19.

They argue that the White House is too focused on mandates and not enough to acknowledge that millions of Americans have natural antibodies to prevent future infections.

The legislation requires HHS to report data about the number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 but then became infected by coronavirus. HHS is also required to report data on "breakthrough cases", or people who have been fully vaccinated and who are now suffering from COVID-19.

Lankford stated in a statement to Fox News Digital that the Biden Administration is so obsessed about their vaccine mandates, they refuse to even examine or release information on people who have natural immunity to COVID-19. "Natural immunity is an important component in reducing the spread COVID-19. It should be considered along with vaccines. We want the Biden Administration's most accurate data on natural immunity to be available to the American people so they can make informed decisions and understand our COVID situation.

The legislators point out a limited Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study in January New York and California COVID-19 that documented the benefits natural immunity.
Prior to June when Delta was the dominant variant, people who were vaccinated had lower rates of COVID-19 infection than those with prior immunity,
the study showed. However, this trend was reversed by October. People who had survived prior COVID-19 infections had lower infection rates than people who had only received the vaccine.

According to the study, people who had never been vaccinated or have not had a COVID-19 infection were at higher risk of being hospitalized between May 2021 and November 2021.

Braun stated in a statement that "just last month, CDC data showed natural immunity was 3-4x as effective in preventing COVID-19 compared to vaccination." The Biden Administration should release all data regarding natural immunity from HHS, rather than imposing burdensome mandates and unclear guidance that have hindered our recovery. Americans deserve transparency and clear answers."

This information request comes at a time when the Biden Administration has a vaccine mandate to members of the military as well as certain health care workers. The Supreme Court, however, blocked Biden from sweeping vaccination-or test mandate for private companies with less than 100 employees.

Some local governments, including Washington, D.C., require proof of vaccination in order to enter private companies - drawing scorn courtesy of GOP members of Congress who backed one DC bar, The Big Board, which was resisting this mandate.

Fox News Digital asked HHS for comment on whether it had data about natural immunity. HHS did not respond immediately.
Roy spoke out about the Biden administration, saying that they are unwilling or negligently not tracking critical information regarding natural immunity acquired from COVID infections in the past. They also push unconstitutional, wrong-headed vaccine mandates with government power.

According to the CDC, 76.8 millions people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19. More than 903,000 people have also died from the disease. The CDC estimates that more than 251 million Americans have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the CDC, getting vaccinated can help stop the spread COVID-19. The shots are very effective in preventing serious illness, hospitalizations, and even death.
