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."

The Centers for Disease Control quietly changed the definition of "vaccination" earlier this month. Congressman Thomas Massie tweeted the change last week.
Here is the old definition of "vaccination" from the CDC's website (2012):
"Vaccination: Injection of a killed or weakened infectious organism in order to prevent the disease."
In August 2021, the CDC updated the definition of "vaccination" to align with the new mRNA spike protein vaccine program:
"Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease."
However, the word "immunity" was problematic because studies out of Israel show that God-given natural immunity provides 27 times more protection than mRNA vaccines.
The CDC removed the word "immunity" and replaced it with "protection", since immunity conferred by mRNA "vaccines" fades in 3-6 months.
Here is the new definition of "vaccination" from CDC.gov (updated on Sept. 1):
Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.
Twitter users accused the CDC of moving the goalposts yet again.
Expect Dr. Anthony Fauci and CNN to downplay and minimize natural immunity as trivial since mRNA spike protein shots provide better "protection."
Dr. Fauci couldn't answer a basic question about immunity when CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta went off-script last week. See video below.

Pfizer-BioNTech has announced a new oral antiviral treatment for the coronavirus that must be taken twice per day along with the mRNA vaccines.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla announced the new pills in a tweet on Wednesday.
"Success against #COVID19 will likely require both vaccines & treatments. We're pleased to share we've started a Phase 2/3 study of our oral antiviral candidate-specifically designed to combat SARS-CoV-2-in non-hospitalized, low-risk adults."
Pfizer is projected to earn $34 billion in 2021 from sales of its mRNA vaccines.
In a press release this week, Pfizer stated the pills were developed to specifically target SARS-CoV-2 in fully vaccinated, "non-hospitalized, low-risk adults."
Pfizer says the oral protease inhibitor antiviral pills will be "mandated" for all symptomatic adults who are "not at increased risk of progressing to severe illness, which may lead to hospitalization or death."
In other words, the pills will be mandated for adults who have natural immunity and are not likely to get sick if they contract Covid-19.
