When the president, White House officials, media anchors and pundits order Americans to follow the science, listen to them.
However, it’s clear the scientists are not on the same page as the politically motivated.
A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted against green-lighting COVID-19 booster shots Friday for most people — throwing up a major hurdle for President Biden’s plan to dole out a third dose to most Americans.
The FDA is not bound to follow the advice of the independent advisory panel but has followed its guidance so far on COVID-19 vaccinations. Overall, the panel voted 16-2 not to recommend a third dose for people 16 years and up while unanimously green-lighting it for people 65 years and older.

There are no active cases of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in 33 districts of Uttar Pradesh, the state government informed on Friday. About 67 districts have not reported a single new case of the viral infection in the last 24 hours, the government said, noting the steady improvement of the Covid-19 situation in the state.
Overall, the state has a total of 199 active cases, while the positivity rate came down to less than 0.01 per cent. The recovery rate, meanwhile, has improved to 98.7 per cent. As per the state’s health bulletin, Uttar Pradesh reported only 11 new Covid-19 cases and zero deaths in the last 24 hours.

According to FDA Advisory Committee member Steve Kirsch, Uttar Pradesh is almost totally unvaccinated.
Much of the information shared amongst committee members were sentiments that would result in “fact checker” warnings on a social media post, if not worse. This was a committee meeting that networks should have interrupted regular programming so the American people could have heard the genuine concerns of doctors and scientists instead of the bloviating on cable news and spin from Fauci and the White House.
