A prominent immunologist has come out to admit that he now regrets voting for President Joe Biden in the 2020 election because of the administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
Dr. Hooman Noorchashm has held positions at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and the Philadelphia VA Hospital, according to Drugwatch, a consumer advocacy organization of which Noorchashm is a contributor. Noorchashm has also assisted in acquiring grants from the National Institutes of Health, as well as “authored more than 65 articles, abstracts and reviews in peer-reviewed medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of Immunology, Nature Medicine, American Journal of Transplantation, Critical Care Medicine, and Diabetes.”
Noorchashm is a proponent of COVID-19 vaccines for those without natural immunity, and recently encouraged adults to “get vaxxed, if not immune.” However, Noorchashm is sternly against COVID-19 vaccine mandates, especially for those who have “pre-established acquired immunity” to coronavirus.
Noorchashm is cited in a lawsuit arguing that Michigan State University’s vaccine mandate should include an exemption for those who have COVID-19 antibodies. Jeanna Norris, a 37-year-old Michigan State administrative associate and fiscal officer, filed a lawsuit against the school claiming that she shouldn’t need a vaccine because she contracted coronavirus in 2020 and recovered, and thus has natural immunity.
