NIH, FDA & CDC Employees Quitting In Droves Over Infant Covid Vaccines

Doctors and scientists at the top levels of the NIH, FDA and CDC are leaving their positions in the federal government over the recent approval of Covid shots for infants and boosters for kids.
An article published Thursday by Johns Hopkins professor Marty Makary M.D., M.P.H. and consultant epidemiologist with Florida Department of Health Tracy Beth Høeg M.D., Ph.D. detailed the concerns of the health experts.
A senior FDA official told the doctors, “It’s like a horror movie I’m being forced to watch and I can’t close my eyes. People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.”
The “bad advice” the FDA doctor referred to is the lack of clinical data supporting the use of Covid jabs in Americans aged 6 months to five years old.
The FDA doctor was also upset the agency bypassed external experts in authorizing booster shots for kids.
The article continued to note top officials at the NIH’s Vaccine Research Center have quit over the past year, including the director, deputy director and chief medical officer.
An NIH scientist told Makary and Høeg, “There’s an enormous number of jobs opening up at the highest level positions.”
A pair of CDC officials said their agency is also suffering from low morale and that employees are tired of the politicization of their work.
“There’s been a large amount of turnover. Morale is low,” a high-level CDC official noted. “Things have become so political, so what are we there for?”
A CDC scientist told the doctors, “I used to be proud to tell people I work at the CDC. Now I’m embarrassed.”
Explaining why the experts would be “embarrassed,” the article stated, “The heads of their agencies are using weak or flawed data to make critically important public health decisions.”
One of the CDC scientists who talked with the doctors said the agency “failed to balance the risks of Covid with other risks that come from closing schools. Learning loss, mental health exacerbations were obvious early on and those worsened as the guidance insisted on keeping schools virtual. CDC guidance worsened racial equity for generations to come. It failed this generation of children.”
The top issue voiced by the whistleblowers inside the federal government was the weak data used to support vaccinating kids and infants with the experimental Covid shots.
“You can inject them with it or squirt it in their face, and you’ll get the same benefit,” a top CDC employee joked when discussing the efficacy of the Pfizer shot.
“It seems criminal that we put out the recommendation to give mRNA Covid vaccines to babies without good data. We really don’t know what the risks are yet. So why push it so hard?” a CDC physician asked the doctors.
A high-level FDA official made a similar comment, telling Makary and Høeg, “The public has no idea how bad this data really is. It would not pass muster for any other authorization.”
In addition to being highly concerned about the rollout of the mRNA shots for babies and children, agency officials, scientists and doctors are worried they’ll be punished for speaking out.
“There’s a silence, an unwillingness for agency scientists to say anything. Even though they know that some of what’s being said out of the agency is absurd,” an NIH scientist said.
A workplace environment where employees are afraid to speak about things like natural immunity or weak clinical data does not reflect an organization that follows science.
On Friday, Dr. Peter McCullough posted a clip of Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposing the CDC, FDA, NIH failures throughout the Covid pandemic.
