Is Biden’s Newest Booster Shot a ‘Political Stunt’?
Biden received his latest booster in front of America to promote vaccines for children. Let’s pray against mandates, especially for kids.
From Fox News. Fox News medical contributor Dr. Nicole Saphier criticized the White House on Tuesday for turning President Biden’s COVID-19 booster into a public spectacle to promote vaccines for Americans ages 5 and older, despite there being no public clinical data to support its benefit for young people.
In a speech before receiving his booster shot earlier Tuesday, Biden said that the country has a long way to go in getting people up to date on their vaccinations and called on “all Americans” to get boosted against COVID.
Saphier said the White House has resorted to a “political stunt” get more Americans boosted because out of the 180 million bivalent boosters they purchased, only about 19 million have been administered.
“I think the White House and the CDC must have the strongest PR campaign ever,” she said on “America Reports.” “This truly is a political stunt at this point.”
Biden, who turns 80 next month and has a cardiac medical history, is in the highest-risk category, which makes him an ideal candidate for the booster, Saphier said. But the CDC’s recent recommendation to make the vaccine mandatory for healthy children ages 5 and up doesn’t sit well with her, she explained. …
Saphier echoed other medical professionals who denounced the CDC’s decision, citing a lack of clinical data demonstrating the benefit of the vaccine in younger, healthy people. …
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor Dr. Marty Makary also criticized the CDC for recommending the COVID vaccine as a requirement for young children in a Fox News appearance last week, warning that the move will further fuel vaccine hesitancy surrounding childhood immunizations. …
