“Reports that Food and Drug Administration officials plan to step down over the White House’s COVID-19 booster shot guidance have created a ‘mess’ for the Biden administration, according to Dr. Mark Siegel. In a statement on Tuesday, the FDA said that Marion Gruber, director of the agency’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review, and her deputy director, Phil Krause, will leave in October and November, respectively. Siegel told “America’s Newsroom” that the seeming clash between the FDA and the White House has created ‘a mess for the administration.’ ‘There’s a lot of confusion, there’s a lot of finger pointing … this is a mess for the administration right now,’ Siegel said. Siegel acknowledged that studies out of Israel indicate a significant reduction to the spread of the virus, but that the ‘confusion’ between the White House and health officials have complicated matters. ” (09/02/21)
