Rep. James Comer (R-Kentucky), the lead Republican on the House Oversight Committee, has sent a letter to Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock expressing concerns over more reports that the Biden Administration is improperly interfering at the FDA with the vaccine approval process.
Comer wrote, “Recently, two former high-ranking FDA officials—including one that resigned because of the alleged political interference by the Biden Administration at the FDA—raised concerns about the agency bypassing the standard process for making decisions related to booster shots for Americans. If true, these short cuts undermine the integrity of our public health system and cause vaccine hesitancy … President Biden should ensure the federal government is not cutting corners in the vaccine recommendations process.”
According to an article published in the Washington Post, the Biden FDA has made three key vaccination related decisions without convening a standing panel of outside scientific experts. The panel known as the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) was sidelined and did not weigh in on the vaccine recommendations. This most recently occurred when the FDA authorized booster shots for all children ages 12-15.
Rep. Comer continues in his letter to Woodcock,
"The Panel was not going to do the White House’s bidding so instead of engaging in a robust scientific dialogue, the Biden Administration made the calculated political decision to entirely cast aside the Panel."Rep. James Comer (R-Kentucky)
"This has become a pattern with the Biden Administration—the Administration that repeatedly promised to follow the science… Instead of being thorough and transparent, this Administration is shortcutting the standard vaccine recommendation process.” In the letter to Acting Commissioner Woodcock, Ranking Member Comer again calls for all information available regarding booster shot recommendations."

Firstly, I take issue with the usual political dialogs and the hackneyed talking points,i.e., "vaccine hesitancy." If we had an authentic 'Health' care program we'd have access to all healing modalities and coverage for so-called 'alternative' approaches that are based on knowledge passed down through the ages. Acupuncture, Naturopaths, nutrition, herbal treatments, etc. would all be included in a holistic panoply of choices available to all. The conflicts of interest are so brazen and tainted with backroom business deals that it may be apt to call this era the 'age of conspiracy disclosure.' As for the current POTUS admin's agenda, we see a hesitancy in representing the general health and well-being of US citizens--with the current shenanigans re illegals being distributed throughout the country as one particular indicator of betrayal to the oath of office. Lastly, the scam-demic has never been focused on 'science'--not in the political media-driven display of propaganda--or we would've had access to the alternative 'real' cures for the so-called rona virus. What we witnessed was the suppression of real science in favor of pseudo-science in service to control-lockdowns-and a mega profit schedule.
Thanks for sharing your view so concisely. Somehow, it helps to hear logic in these times. It’s nice to know not all of us are asleep. I do fear for America. For Americans. It’s a waiting game, now. I hope I’ll be alive to see the ultimate outcome of this corruption - that it is rooted out and destroyed. Perhaps.
My sentiments exactly.

"[C]oncerns about the agency bypassing the standard process for making decisions related to booster shots for Americans" is an unwarranted criticism: The convening of advisory committees is not the "standard process," but is mainly done if there is a difficult question(s) about which regulators need outside expert advice. More to the point, Comer's comment is part of a damned if you do, damned if you don't conundrum. If FDA convenes the advisory committee, that delays the decision, and they're criticized for that; if they make the decision unilaterally and more quickly, they're criticized for "bypassing the standard process," and encouraging vaccine hesitancy.

Re "damned if you do/damned if you don't" conundrums. Yes, and that is the nature of pseudo-science when you create a toxic misinformation cocktail! Considering the fact that Pfizer funds the FDA, and the fact that the CDC has contributed to the suppression of viable treatments for the 'rona virus --it may be wise to presume that the DC political go-round is allowing the 'conundrum' to continue...[the sound of tax dollars cha-chinging in the background.] Pharma-gate has only just begun!
