FDA Throws Wrench In Biden's Plans As They Reject His 'Promise' To America

An influential Food and Drug Administration advisory board on Friday dismissed an offer to send booster shots of Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccines to the general public, bringing back those plans to unanimously recommend the third shots to people aged 65 and older and other vulnerable Americans.

“It’s likely beneficial, in my opinion, for the elderly, and may eventually be indicated for the general population. I just don’t think we’re there yet in terms of the data,” said Dr. Ofer Levy, a vaccine and infectious disease specialist at Boston Children’s Hospital.

The council voted 16-2 against administering the vaccines to Americans 16 and older, before collectively covering another form of method to administer boosters to older Americans and those at a high risk of experiencing severe illness if they get the virus. That’s previously included people with diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other so-called comorbidities.
