Is this another debacle for the Joe Biden’s administration? Another selfish and self decisive decision making for Joe Biden. Omg!
Politico reported that Two top Food and Drug Administration officials resigned over the Biden administration’s move to roll out COVID-19 booster shots before the agency itself approved the inoculations.
It was first reported by Bio Century that Dr. Marion Gruber, director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review, and her deputy, Dr. Philip Krause had previously planned to leave the FDA within the next three months.
Recently, the FDA announced the resignations Tuesday.
No surprise why the Former Trump administration officials are also angry over Biden’s approach to boosters after being criticized for pressuring the agency on drug and vaccine decisions. It’s simply out of context.
also, FDA officials are scrambling to collect and analyze data that clearly demonstrate the boosters’ benefits before the administration’s Sept. 20 deadline for rolling them out to most adults. Many outside experts, and some within the agency, see uncomfortable similarities between the Biden team’s top-down booster plan and former President Donald Trump’s attempts to goad FDA into accelerating its initial authorization process for Covid-19 vaccines and push through unproven virus treatments.
President Joe Biden’s Covid-19 czar Jeff Zients backed up FDA as the regulatory “gold standard” in a Tuesday press briefing shortly after the departure news. “[The booster] decision was made by and announced by the nation’s leading public health officials… and as our medical experts laid out having reviewed all the available data, it is in their clinical judgment that it’s time to prepare Americans for a booster shot,” he said. “We announced our approach to stay ahead of the virus and to be transparent on latest data.”
