The Food and Drug Administration went rogue on Friday and completely rejected President Joe Biden’s plan to push booster shots for Americans who received the Pfizer vaccine.
More often than not, the FDA has been willing to rubberstamp President Biden’s every move. This decision marks a rare break in policy with the President.
The plan to recommend booster shots was rejected by a vote of 16-2. Furthermore, the FDA was only willing to recommend booster shots to “people who are 65 or older or at high risk of severe Covid-19, and received their second dose at least six months ago.”
Clearly, the idea of booster shots has minimal scientific backing if Biden’s own lapdogs at the FDA aren’t willing to greenlight the plan.
Of course, this vote will likely do little to deter the Biden administration from pushing booster shots.
The Biden administration has made it clear that combatting coronavirus is about ideology rather than science. One way or another, it is likely that Americans will be facing calls from the Biden administration to get booster shots.
