Report: Biden Administration Strong-Armed FDA into Fast-Tracking COVID Vaccine

A new report from the House of Representatives claims that the Biden Administration repeatedly pressured the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) into speeding up the approval of the Chinese Coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer.

According to the Daily Caller, the staff report from the Subcommittee on the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform, and Antitrust alleges that the FDA did not follow the usual regulatory guidelines when it came to approving the Pfizer vaccine. As such, when the FDA gave its approval to the vaccine, it allowed the Biden Administration to more quickly issue a mandate forcing federal workers and active duty troops to take the Pfizer vaccine or else risk losing their jobs.

In a statement issued by the House Judiciary Committee, which oversees the subcommittee in question, the committee further explained that the Biden Administration intended to “fully approve the Pfizer vaccine through the Biologics Licensing Application (BLA) process.” Although this process normally takes “ten months to a year,” or “six to eight months” if it’s a priority, the approval of the Pfizer vaccine took less than four months after Pfizer first filed its application.

The report was the culmination of an investigation led by Subcommittee Chairman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.). The report notes that top officials at the FDA “cut corners” during the approval process so that the Biden Administration could more quickly enact the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to force people to take the vaccine.

The military mandate, first enacted in 2021, ultimately led to thousands of service members being discharged due to a refusal to take the vaccine. The mandate was finally repealed by an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in 2023. The mandate for federal employees was ultimately upheld by the United States Supreme Court, although a similar mandate for private businesses was overturned on the same day.

Massie released his own statement denouncing the manner in which the FDA “downplayed potential harms” of the COVID vaccines, including such conditions as myocarditis, which causes inflammation of the heart.

“Exposing and acknowledging mistakes that were made is a necessary step toward restoring integrity and trust in our regulatory agencies,” Massie added.
