(Headline USA) The Biden administration once again ignored the advice of vaccine experts to approve a fourth booster shot for elderly Americans this month.

The Food and Drug Administration announced that older adults and young children with certain immune deficiencies can now get another booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, but it did so without convening a meeting of its advisory panel of vaccine experts first.

“The issue of a fourth dose is not on the current agenda because two doses and a booster are working very well,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center and one of the advisers on the FDA’s panel.

Another expert, Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, said the Biden administration’s decision to ignore the advice of its experts has “led to distrust and confusion in the American public.”

President Joe Biden made a public appearance last week to get his fourth shot, using the moment as an opportunity to demand more COVID-19 funding from Congress.
