BREAKING NEWS: FDA advisory committee votes to NOT recommend approval of booster shots for Pfizer’s Covid vaccine
Wow. Without boosters, the failure of the vaccine will become increasingly apparent.
An independent panel at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has voted 16-2 to not recommend approval of booster doses for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19vaccine.
The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) said there was not enough evidence that a third dose was safe and effective for use in those aged 16 and older at least six months after the final dose.
The FDA is not bound to follow the advisory group’s recommendations but the panel advising against approval makes it harder for the agency to justify moving forward.
