Health experts are quitting the NIH and CDC in droves because they're embarrassed by 'bad science' - including vaccinating children under 5 to 'make their advice palatable to the White House,' doctors

The NIH and CDC are reportedly facing staffing shortages as low morale drives away employees
Decisions like the closure of schools and then requiring face masks once they reopened led to many questioning leadership
Lately, the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children four years old of younger has confused some in America's top medical agencies
Bari Weiss' 'Common Sense' Substack reports that data from both Pfizer and Moderna's clinical trials for jabs in under-5s show limited effectiveness
‘Major decisions made by the agencies that hurt morale included support for masking in schools, school closures during the pandemic and the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children four and under.
Both agencies, along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been mired in controversy throughout the pandemic for inconsistent messaging and for decision-making that didn't seem to line up with available science.
Makary criticized the data submitted by Pfizer and Moderna to receive the green-light, saying it was lacking: Pfizer's trial included under 1,000 children and didn't show any efficacy against infection, he reports.
Moderna reported just a four percent reduction in infection in their trial of around 6,000 children.
'A more honest announcement would have been: 'We approved the vax for babies & toddlers based on very little data. While we believe its safe in this population, the study sample size was too low to make a [conclusion] about safety. Note that studies were done in kids w/o natural immunity,'' Makary told DailyMail.com about the decision in June.
'The public has no idea how bad this data really is. It would not pass muster for any other authorization,' an FDA official said.’
