According to a new report dropped by Politico, COVID-19 experts are pushing back against President Joe Biden’s COVID booster shot campaign where he is trying to inject every American with a booster shot.
The medical experts allegedly told Biden during a “tense” September 27th meeting that the data surrounding COVID-19 doesn’t justify using a booster shot to combat the virus.
White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House policy adviser Cameron Webb, and the leaders with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were also on the call.
Check out what Politico reported:
The Sept. 27 call was originally planned for the week before. The White House abruptly rescheduled it after the CDC’s independent vaccine advisory committee recommended that the Pfizer-BioNTech booster be reserved for high-risk groups, including the elderly.
The rescheduled call was the tensest one to date, according to the three people with information on the talks. Fauci argued that the CDC committee’s stance — that science did not support giving boosters to all adults — was incorrect. And he dismissed suggestions that the administration had to choose between a broad U.S. booster campaign and donating vaccines to countries in need.
The president’s chief medical adviser also told the outside experts that boosters could, and should, be given widely to reduce the spread of the coronavirus rather than only to prevent severe disease or death.
The experts were very confused with what the Biden administration was trying to accomplish. One even called out Fauci for being an egotistical narcissist.
“It was very tense,” said one of the experts to Politico. “More than anything, it was like Fauci felt he needed to make a point.”
Fauci is indeed trying to make a point considering his ego seems to be how he makes decisions against the American people. Over the weekend, Fauci hinted that he may recommend that people stay home for Christmas.
“It’s just too soon to tell,” Fauci said on CBS News. “We’ve just got to [be] concentrating on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time.”
After receiving backlash for his ridiculous Christmas comments, Fauci later said: “I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.”
