FDA likely to make vaccine booster decision without outside advisory committee weighing in – CNN

(Reuters) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is unlikely to ask its outside vaccine advisers to weigh in on whether the agency should authorize Pfizer COVID-19 boosters for all adults, CNN reported on Friday, citing a source.

The source told CNN “it’s unlikely there is going to be a meeting” of the outside advisers and “there has been no discussion of a meeting” to discuss Pfizer’s application.

The FDA said the agency “will determine whether to hold a meeting of the advisory committee … following its initial review of the information submitted,” CNN added.
