FDA Panel Votes 16–3 Against Approving Pfizer COVID-19 Booster Shots

F

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel on Friday voted 16-3 to recommended against providing booster shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for individuals aged 16 and older.

Throughout the meeting, independent scientists to the FDA struck a skeptical tone on the need for boosters, or third doses, for Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for the general public. The advisory panel’s discussion is the first major test for the Biden administration’s vaccination agenda as top health officials last month announced they would try to roll out boosters for everyone by Sept. 20.

While U.S. health officials, some other countries and vaccine makers have argued that boosters are needed, many scientists, including some inside the FDA and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have disagreed. Booster doses have been previously recommended by the CDC for immunocompromised individuals.

But to boost arguments against boosters being recommended for the general population, an FDA slide said the risk of COVID-19 for a or healthy 30-year-old is just 0.0004 percent, or 1 in 250,000. Some recommended a booster for older individuals but several experts said they want more data about whether the booster shots can contributed to myocarditis.

About the author

Chris Blackwood

These are the sporadic musings, rants, and ramblings of a middle aged man who isn't exactly thrilled with the direction that America is taking today. I'm extremely opinionated where politics are concerned.

I'm a common sense conservative and a political atheist. I follow politics closely just to stay informed, but I don't believe a word the government tells me. I call it like I see it and I don't mince any words.

Life is too short to stay quiet.

Nope, this isn't just a kitty blog anymore, although there will be some of that too . . .
