GOP Lawmakers Demand Answers From FDA on Pfizer Booster Approval for Children

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bypassed approval from its vaccine advisory committee when approving Pfizer’s booster shot for children aged 12-15. Now, over two-dozen GOP lawmakers want to know why. The lawmakers, led by Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Chip Roy, called the decision to forgo the committee’s approval “extremely puzzling and, frankly, quite troubling.”

The World Health Organization’s chief scientist said on Tuesday that there’s no evidence that healthy children and teenagers need vaccine boosters.
