President Biden’s Sept. 20 deadline for rolling out coronavirus booster shots has been marred by pushback from scientists, citing a lack of reliable scientific data, resulting in the recent resignations of two FDA senior officials. For some, the move contradicts his vow to “follow the science” on matters related to COVID policy.

Public health experts are speaking out that keeping pace with the White House’s Sept. 20 timeline put increased pressure on scientists, who are analyzing the evidence, to proceed with the administration’s strategy and timeline, the New York Times reported. The issue was put on full display earlier this week, when two FDA officials – the director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research & Review Marion Gruber, and its deputy director Phil Krause – filed their resignations from the agency.
