Psychiatry professor at UC Irvine sues over college’s vax mandate saying previous COVID infection means he’s immune

A professor in California is suing the university where he works over a COVID-19 vaccination mandate, saying that he already contracted the virus and is now ‘naturally immune’ to it. Aaron Kheriaty, [associate] professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of California Irvine’s School of Medicine, filed a lawsuit against the school, saying he caught COVID-19 in July 2020. The University of California school system announced in July 2021 that all faculty, staff and students MUST be vaccinated against the virus two weeks before fall semester classes start.
