'There is no greater slap in the face of science'

Two top FDA scientists resigned last year after charging the agency was allowing politics to compromise its vaccine-approval process, and now the FDA has expanded emergency use authorization for a fourth booster shot without a vote of its expert panel.


The FDA on Tuesday said people age 50 and older are allowed to get a second Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 booster – a fourth shot – four months after their first booster.

Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins University, condemned the move in a series of tweets Tuesday.

"There is no greater slap in the face of science than bypassing the customary FDA external expert voting process over an authorization with insufficient supporting clinical data," Makary wrote.

"It's like a judge issuing a verdict and then having lawyers make their arguments."
