What is #ScreenB4Vaccine? And Why Is It Necessary For Keeping Every American Maximally Safe in The COVID-19 Pandemic?
Currently, it is NOT a standard of care in medical practice to assess either the extent of a person’s existing immunity or the presence of an active infection at the time a patient is being offered a vaccine.
In the case of the COVID-19 pandemic and SARS-CoV-2 infection, it is certainly the case that COVID-19 vaccines are being offered to people, worldwide, many of whom are either naturally immune or recently infected.
It is my opinion, as a physician and immunologist, that this indiscriminate vaccination process is either unnecessary or potentially dangerous — thus, indiscriminate COVID-19 vaccination has opened the door to totally avoidable harm in, at least, a minority subset of unsuspecting persons who are being vaccinated.
The premise upon which #ScreenB4Vaccine is based is that indiscriminate vaccination of persons who are either already immune because of a prior infection/vaccination OR are recently/actively infected is either unnecessary or is potentially dangerous to the vaccine candidate.
