Two senior FDA officials are reportedly in disagreement with the Biden administration over COVID booster shots.
This comes after an international group of scientists, including two senior FDA officials, say the COVID booster isn’t necessary.

The two FDA officials, Marion Gruber, director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review, and her deputy director, Phil Krause, published an opinion piece in The Lancet with other experts.

The Hill reports that the two scientists are the most senior vaccine regulators at the agency and both helped review the COVID-19 vaccines. Gruber, who has spent 32 years at FDA, will leave at the end of October. Krause, who’s worked at FDA for more than a decade, will leave in November.
The group’s opinion argued that COVID vaccines are effective enough to prevent severe disease, including the delta variant”
“Careful and public scrutiny of the evolving data will be needed to assure that decisions about boosting are informed by reliable science more than by politics. Widespread boosting should be undertaken only if there is clear evidence that it is appropriate.”
The group warns:
“There could be risks if boosters are widely introduced too soon, or too frequently, especially with vaccines that can have immune-mediated side-effects (such as myocarditis, which is more common after the second dose of some mRNA vaccines,3 or Guillain-Barre syndrome, which has been associated with adenovirus-vectored COVID-19 vaccines4).”
