United States: FDA Officials Reject COVID-19 Booster Shots
A group of 18 senior US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials released a report opposing the Biden White House’s COVID-19 vaccine booster rollout planned for next week. Among the group are Marion Gruber and Phil Krause, two top FDA vaccine experts who announced their retirement after the Biden administration jumped ahead of the FDA with their booster shot announcement.
The Biden administration is preparing to administer booster shots from September 20. However, President Joe Biden also stated last week that any further decisions on the jabs, including the timing and deciding who should receive them, will be made by the FDA and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
According to the Lancet, which covered the FDA report on Monday, the FDA report states there is zero evidence to suggest the need for boosters, as fully vaccinated individuals already have high levels of protection against hospitalization or death. The report insists that vaccines should instead be donated to areas with lower vaccination rates to prevent further COVID-19 mutations.
However, a growing number of doctors in the US and worldwide oppose vaccinations altogether, saying that the shots are dangerous.
