FDA and CDC experts object to vaccine booster for young people

There was a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He said:

"In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indiscriminately push for boosters for all young people. Those recommendations came over the objections of the agencies’ own experts."

"The last vote by FDA advisers, in September, rejected the proposal 16-2. FDA leaders revisited the proposal in November and simply bypassed the experts. So did the CDC, whose advisers had rejected boosters for people not at high risk."

You all know I'm not anti-vaccine. Anti-mandate yes, absolutely, but not anti-vaccine for those who choose to get one. When it comes to vaccine recommendations, we simply cannot tolerate political pressures interfering with those processes.

Reports like this are concerning, and the FDA & CDC need to help us understand why their own advisors were allegedly ignored concerning boosters for younger, healthy individuals.
