Senior FDA leaders resign amid furor over COVID-19 booster shots, proving vaccine decisions are all about politics, not science
The Biden regime and the deep state left continue to push for all Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine despite the fact that they are of suspect effectiveness given that people who have gotten the jab are still coming down with the disease.
But even as that debate rages and additional studies show that the best immunity from COVID is natural immunity after actually getting the disease and recovering from it -- like 99.5 percent of people have -- now, suddenly, talk of COVID boosters
has come up.
In recent days, the man who's been most wrong about the coronavirus and who reportedly helped fund its development, "Dr." Tony Fauci, said he's "certain" that Americans are going to need booster vaccines.
“I’m certain we’re going to need that third dose, looking at the data that we’re seeing,” the White House chief medical advisor told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“Right now, we’re sticking with eight [months] but we’re totally open to any variation in that based on the data,” Fauci said.
“I believe that mandating vaccines for children to appear in school is a good idea,” Fauci would later say on CNN.
“We’ve done this for decades and decades, requiring polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis. So this would not be something new.”
Well, sure, but those vaccines weren't 10 minutes out of being experimental.
Obviously, not everyone agrees with the world's most incorrect man on COVID-19, and that could include a pair of formerly high-ranking officials at the Food and Drug Administration, the agency that is supposedly in charge of approving (or disapproving) booster vaccines.
According to Endpoints News
Two of the FDA’s most senior vaccine leaders are exiting from their positions, raising fresh questions about the Biden administration and the way that it’s sidelined the FDA.
Marion Gruber, director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research & Review and 32-year veteran of the agency, will leave at the end of October, and OVRR deputy director Phil Krause, who’s been at FDA for more than a decade, will leave in November. The news, first reported by BioCentury, is a massive blow to confidence in the agency’s ability to regulate vaccines.
The announcement, which is fairly earth-shattering, comes as the agency weighs whether or not to approve COVID boosters and shots for younger children. In addition, they leave as the Biden regime has announced that the booster shots
may actually be 'ready' for roll-out later this month, even though the FDA has yet to give its approval.
“FDA is losing two giants who helped bring us many safe and effective vaccines over decades of public service," FDA’s former acting chief scientist Luciana Borio noted on Twitter.
There are a number of factors that led to the departure of Krause and Gruber, but the overarching reason, according to sources who spoke to Endpoints, was Fauci and the regime coming out early and saying boosters are happening. They believe those decisions are strictly in the wheelhouse of their former agency.
“These two are the leaders for Biologic (vaccine) review in the US. They have a great team, but these two are the true leaders of CBER. A huge global loss if they both leave,” Former BARDA director Rick Bright noted regarding news of the departures. “Dr. Gruber is much more than the Director. She is a global leader. Visionary mastermind behind global clinical regulatory science for flu, Ebola, Mers, Zika, Sars-cov-2, many others.”
So what does all of this really mean? Easy -- pushing COVID-19 vaccines and boosters is a purely political calculation and decision, not one based on science and research. That helps explain why the same people who were against the vaccines when Donald Trump was president are for them now -- because they are in charge.
Just another reason why you should really think about whether you want to get one at all
