Just when everyone thought we were reaching “herd immunity” after the big double-vaccine push was behind us, now comes talk of booster shots. With the understanding now that the COVID vaccines’ “protection” wanes after six months, the debate is changing. Like goal...
We Need Complete Transparency in Data on the Need for COVID Booster Shots
As the Delta variant rages, the Biden Administration wants Americans to get a booster shot beginning September 20th. However, there is lingering doubt as CDC advisors called for more data to support the boosters. Compounding the uncertainty, two top FDA vaccine officials—Dr. Marion Gruber, Director, and Dr. Phil Krause, Deputy Director of the Office of Vaccines Research and Review—suddenly resigned.
“These sudden resignations and calls for more data are very troubling,” says Dr. Li-Meng Yan. “It’s very risky to issue a booster without the proper scientific understanding of the virus and its variants.”
The FDA and CDC still need to meet next week to approve the third dose, and even then there is confusion on who gets the shot. FDA’s scientific advisers will publicly debate Pfizer’s evidence on Sept. 17, just three days before the administration’s target. If the FDA approves another dose, then advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will recommend who should get one, according to The Associated Press.
Dr. Janet Woodcock, the acting commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, who heads the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned the White House on Thursday that their agencies may be able to determine in the coming weeks whether to recommend boosters only for recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine — and possibly just some of them to start. Federal regulators warned on Thursday they may not have enough data to recommend boosters for anyone except certain recipients of the Pfizer vaccine by late September, reports the New York Times.
President Biden said in his speech to the nation on Thursday evening, “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin.” All of this adds to the drama and confusion that these vaccines and booster shots are being rushed to market without the proper research and studies. Americans are asking questions and demanding answers before considering a shot that can change their lives.
The vaccines were originally given emergency use authorization (EUA) based on an erroneous assumption—that SARS-CoV-2 came from nature. The larger scientific community, and most of the intelligence community, now acknowledge that the more likely scenario is that the virus was genetically engineered with known and still-unknown functions designed to target humans.
“The lack of data concerning vaccine safety, as well as its efficacy against the ever-emerging variants, could lead to serious consequences with this booster,” says Dr. Yan.
Since fleeing to the United States last year, Dr. Yan has written extensively about the origins of the virus, including how it was engineered. This knowledge is foundational for the development of any vaccine. As described in her three reports, the virus is part of a more comprehensive unrestricted bioweapons program developed by the Chinese Communist Party in an effort to gain global dominance.
In light of these circumstances, Dr. Yan calls for:
Physicians and scientists to collect and share data related to the SARS-COV-2 infection, and any adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.
Companies developing COVID-19 vaccines—including Pfizer, Moderna, and others—to permit outside scientists and physicians to examine their data so they can determine the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines and then recommend improvements.
The FDA, CDC, and NIH need to provide complete transparency of their COVID-19 vaccine data from which public-health policy is developed.
