The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic said that former CDC Director Walensky "acted against the CDC's own vaccine advisory panel" when she recommended COVID-19 booster shots for healthy, low-risk Americans.
The Biden White House then promoted the same, unscientific guidance.
CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will be meeting on September 12, 2023, to evaluate the need for Americans to receive another covid booster shot.
In a letter issued to current CDC director Mandy Cohen, House Select Subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup said, "Unfortunately, it appears that politics may play a role in this recommendation." He went on to point out how the Biden Administration clearly has a preferred outcome, which should be very concerning to all Americans.
"The CDC must follow medical science, not political science," Wenstrup said.
He then laid out in detail how former CDC Director Rachel Walensky acted against a recommendation issued by ACIP on September 23, 2021. The ACIP decided against recommending covid booster shots for people in high risk occupations. ACIP specifically noted the risk of myocarditis in young men as part of its guidance. Yet Walensky disregarded the risk to young people, and issued advice on September 24, 2021, recommending booster shots for those in high risk occupations anyway.
Wenstrup requested a wide range of documents and emails concerning ACIP's recommendations, as well as Walenksy's decision to recommend covid booster shots for "high risk occupational and institutional settings."
