Dr. Archana Chatterjee, a member of the FDA advisory panel who voted against recommending Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use, told CNBC on Friday that her opposition was because she did not believe 16- and 17-year-olds should be included right now.

In a “Squawk Box” interview, Chatterjee said she would have voted “yes” had the question before her been different. “I want to be very clear that I am fully supportive of the emergency use authorization for the use of this vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech for adults 18 years and older,” said Chatterjee, a pediatric infectious disease specialist who serves as dean of the Chicago Medical School.

The FDA committee recommended emergency authorization of the vaccine for people who are 16 years old and older.

In addition to Chatterjee, three other members of a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel on Thursday voted against recommending U.S.-based Pfizer and German partner BioNTech’s vaccine for emergency use. One member abstained from voting, while 17 voted in favor of a recommendation.

The decision from the group of outside experts is nonbinding, but on Friday, FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said in a statement that the agency was working “rapidly” toward finalizing emergency use authorization.

The vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech would be the first to receive regulatory clearance in the United States. It has already been granted approvals by health officials in the United Kingdom and Canada.

Chatterjee noted that the vaccine was 95% effective in preventing Covid-19 in clinical trials while also demonstrating a “really good safety profile overall.” She added, “I think that we were pleasantly surprised to see that this vaccine has such good efficacy in tens of thousands of participants that were included in the trial.”

While commending Pfizer and BioNTech for including people under age 18 in the trials, she stressed that she would like to have seen additional data before recommending more individuals in the group receive it.

Paradise lost – Expelled by Britain and fighting to return home | DW Documentary

Published

on

By



Fifty years ago, the entire population of the Chagos Islands was expelled by British authorities. Now, exiled Chagossians want their homeland back.

After the break-up of the Mauritian archipelago shortly before the independence of Mauritius, Britain leased the largest island to the United States in 1966. The US subsequently built a naval base there. This caused about 1,500 people to be forcibly resettled between 1967 and 1973. The lease agreement has been extended until 2036. But as early as 2019, the International Court of Justice condemned Britain’s actions as a violation of a people’s right to self-determination. Now, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea has ruled that the Chagos Islands be returned to Mauritius. But so far, Britain has refused to give in.

Nevertheless, Chagossians living in exile are fighting to return to their homeland. Sabrina Jean is a dynamic activist leading the fight on behalf of those affected, and striving to keep alive the hope that they may finally be able to return home.
