Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disagree with the recent Biden administration announcement that COVID-19 booster shots will be distributed next month, saying it has not been adequately tested. According to the CDC, official regulators should be the ones first to offer their approval regarding third shots. The discussion took place during the latest vaccine panel.
In a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccine panel, some CDC members expressed their concern that it was premature to announce that third booster shots are a necessity. The Government currently allows a small group of people with suppressed immune systems to receive these boosters. The administration has decided to offer boosters to all adults eventually, but the trouble is that regulators don’t really know how well they work.
The FDA has not yet approved any broad use of these boosters. The Centers for Disease Control’s Demetre Daskalakis told committee members that health care providers who don’t follow the Federal Government’s guidelines on how the vaccines should be administered could open themselves to litigation when they seek reimbursement.
To ensure the health of the American people, the Centers for Disease Control believes it needs to work together with those who have not yet been vaccinated. The CDC’S official opinion is saying that the top priority should be finding ways to ensure citizens are inoculated against the COVID-19 virus
“We need to all go in the same direction to get everyone vaccinated, to get everyone protected and to keep everyone protected, and not to waste this precious resource,” said Sandra Adamson Fryhofer of the American Medical Association.
The Centers for Disease Control said it WILL NOT recommend the use of a third vaccine shot to fight the virus until more safety data is reviewed and that more regulatory evaluation is complete.
