kitten corner: recovered covid

excuse me public health people, i am just a kitten and this is all so terribly confusing, so please pardon me if this is a silly question,

but given that the future protection from covid afforded by having already had and recovered from the disease is as good or better than that of vaccination, why are none of your rules or vaccination passports taking prior infection status into account?

i think maybe if people with vaccination are safe, then probably so are people who got sick and got better.

i have heard some people say that this is because you’re not really epidemiologists and are really just vaccine salesmen with a side order of tyranny, but i’m sure that cannot be true.

this must just be an oversight because you all are so terribly busy.
