NCAA Backflips on Natural Immunity, Says Athletes Who Had COVID Now Considered Vaccinated

Natural immunity from getting a COVID infection will now count as “fully vaccinated” according to new NCAA guidelines for college athletes.

According to ESPN, the organization’s definition of “fully vaccinated individuals” has been expanded from those “within two months of receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, five months of receiving the Pfizer vaccine series or six months of receiving the Moderna vaccine series” (and those who have been boosted) to include athletes “within 90 days of a documented COVID-19 infection.”
