Biden administration shocked by ‘FDA’ committee!
The US Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that there be no need to increase the dose. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has rejected a proposal by the White House to increase the dose.
The committee said the Pfizer vaccine should be given to people aged 65 and over, as well as those with high coronary heart disease.
The Food and Drug Administration’s recommendation comes as a shock to the Biden administration. About a month ago, the Biden administration said that the Pfizer vaccine should be given to everyone in incremental doses, a third time.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s committee also includes outside experts. The committee rejected the proposal to give the increase to all by a vote of 16 to 2. Safety and efficacy information about augmentation is not available. The committee said that the increase should not be given to everyone but to a certain age group and a seriously ill person. The proposal to give an increased dose of vaccine to certain groups of persons was approved by 18 votes against. The committee unanimously recommended that people who are at high risk of the virus and whose health has deteriorated, as well as people over the age of 65, should be given the increased dose.
The decision comes as a shock to the White House. The administration had said a month ago that the dosage of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines should be given eight months after the second dose. Friday’s vote is the first step in the process, and the Food and Drug Administration will make a decision in the next few days. However, the final recommendation will be made by the committee.
