“SLAP IN THE FACE”: Biden Blasted for Approval of Child Booster Shots Without Expert Input

President Joe Biden is coming under intense criticism over the FDA’s approval this week of Covid-19 vaccine booster shots for children ages 12 to 15 without first convening a panel of experts to give their opinion, as is standard practice.

“Dear President Biden, FDA is bypassing it’s scientific advisors to authorize boosters for all kids 12-15 next week. This is unconscionable – undermines the integrity of the FDA’s standard process! Please require FDA to put this authoriz [sic] before the VRBPAC advisory comm for a vote!” Dr. Marty Makary, chief of the Johns Hopkins Islet Transplant Center and a Fox News contributor, tweeted.

VRBPAC – the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee – in September voted against giving everyone booster shots, saying they only supported giving them to those age 65 and older and immunocompromised individuals.

“We’re being asked to approve this as a three-dose vaccine for people 16 years of age and older, without any clear evidence if the third dose for a younger person when compared to an elderly person is of value,” Dr. Paul Offit of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) said at the time.

“It is a slap in the face to science for @US_FDA to circumvent the standard convening of the expert advisory board… FDA is quietly doing this because their experts previously voted it down, voicing concerns about medical harms,” Makary tweeted on Saturday.

Specifically in question are the vaccine’s safety for children, especially considering that the vaccines have been known to cause cardiac issues in some people.

Experts do not know yet what effects booster shots would have on those in the 12 to 15 age group, and President Biden didn’t want a panel of experts getting in the way.

  1. He’s a liberal Democrat – he knows better. What does Science know? Do they understand better than liberal Democrats?

  2. This has nothing to do with Biden
    He’s a useless puppet
    This is all Fraudci and his bosses in big pharma looking for yet MORE profits (because they haven’t made enough yet) and he’s facing rebellion from within because even his buddies are mighty sick of his corruption

  3. All the other “public health” decisions by the government for the last two years have been based primarily on politics, so why should this be any different? And if the politicians aren’t going to pay attention to them, why should they waste the time of the hard working civil service scientists who do have work to do, even though the politicians don’t really care what they think.

  4. Oh- and aren’t liberals only following the SCIENCE. Honestly, I used to give my kids vaccines religiously. But now- I lost all my trust. Maybe the anti vaxxers have something there?

  5. akuperma > All the other “public health” decisions by the government for the last two years have been based primarily on politics,

    You are right. And we need to take off partisan glasses and look at things independently based on our values. As R Meir Twersky wrote in April 2020 – gov officials inherently depend on public opinion, economy, etc. We have our own views that values human life more than politicians and should act accordingly.

    I think the above idea is not controversial at all. What is difficult that this whole story requires combining knowledge of halakha with understanding of medicine and public health at the cutting edge, given that knew facts, vaccines, medicines are discovered and announced daily. So, we need very special dayanim here who either know the subject themselves or are able to interrogate experts in depth. Many people do not realize that the same way you can not pasken halakha from a family newspaper, you can’t understand medicine and statistics from news sites and rumors. If you think more about it, maybe we can reduce the heated discussions.
