A hospital in Western Michigan is hiring nurses from neighboring states who quit their jobs over Covid-19 vaccine mandates.

Spectrum Health, in West Michigan, announced that employees, including nurses and doctors, who recovered from Covid-19 and are now immune, aren't required to get the vaccine.

The announcement comes after U.S. Pres. Joe Biden declared war on unvaccinated Americans in a press conference on Friday.

Biden signed an executive order giving occupational safety agency, OSHA, the authority to fine businesses up to $14,000 per violation if they don't force their employees to get the vaccine.

According to the Detroit News, "Spectrum Health, which is in the process of merging with Southfield-based Beaumont Health, will grant an exemption to those who have a positive PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 plus a positive antibody test from within the past three months."

The hospital is the first major hospital system in the U.S. to grant exemptions to employees with prior Covid-19 infection after reviewing "new research" on Covid.

As first reported in Science magazine, a study out of Israel found that "natural infection with a prior strain of Covid-19" was 13x more effective at preventing future infection than those who are vaccinated.

The groundbreaking research study was initially ignored by the American news media. On Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci was caught off guard when CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta went off script and asked how he would explain to people with natural immunity that they still need the vaccine.

Fauci's answer: "I don't have a really firm answer for you on that."
