Maryland’s Republican governor has called out the Biden administration for mixed messages surrounding the necessity of a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot. In an interview on Sunday, Gov. Larry Hogan (R-Md.) said he received different messages from the White House, CDC and FDA.

Hogan added these mixed messages undermined the credibility of the shot. The Republican also mentioned people were becoming confused on who would be eligible for a booster shot and who would not.

The Biden administration first signaled fully vaccinated people would be eligible for a booster starting in September. However, the CDC and FDA have said only some people would be eligible.

The FDA has been reviewing data submitted by Pfizer for the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine booster dose.Moderna recently announced their submission to the FDA for an evaluation of a booster shot.

“A transparent, thorough and objective review of the data by the FDA is critical so that the medical community and the public continue to have confidence in the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines,” the FDA mentioned in a released statement. “The FDA will review the supplemental application as expeditiously as possible, while still doing so in a thorough and science-based manner.”

It has remained unclear how long after someone has been fully vaccinated until they would need to get the booster shot.
