Sound familiar? I’m sure I heard of a UK vaccine advisory body being pressganged by politicians and the media on some vaccine or other for some age group for which there was no evidence of benefit, or something.
In a major blow to vaccine efforts, senior FDA leaders stepping down
“The departures also come as the administration has recently jumped ahead of the FDA’s reviews of booster shots, announcing that they might be available by the week of Sept. 20.”
“A former senior FDA leader told Endpoints that they’re departing because they’re frustrated that CDC and their ACIP committee are involved in decisions that they think should be up to the FDA. The former FDAer also said he’s heard they’re upset with CBER director Peter Marks for not insisting that those decisions should be kept inside FDA. What finally did it for them was the White House getting ahead of FDA on booster shots.”
