COVID-19 vaccines are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) not the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the AP, Snopes and Lead Stories report. “[Dr. Christine Grady] does not approve the conduct of any research protocol and she has no input into the FDA process for issuing EUAs,” the NIH said in a statement.
Social media users have repeatedly shared the false claim that the role of approving COVID-19 vaccines falls to Christine Grady, an NIH official and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s wife. But the FDA is in charge of authorizing the shots, not Grady and the NIH.
Dr. Christine Grady is indeed married to Dr. Anthony Fauci, and she is chief of bioethics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center and a member of the NIH research community.
What people are saying?
Eric Minton Want to bet? It doesn’t striek you as odd that someone who has sway over the approval of vaccines is married to the guy pushing that same vaccine? Makes me wonder how many people at Lead Stories has stock in Pfizer…might explain why you guys protect Fauci.
El_Toro_USA It doesn’t matter, when they control all parts of the system; they can openly do as desire, without any sense of fear because nothing will happen to them. Sadly to say: I believe some individuals are above the constitution of the USA. They show it everyday for everyone to see.
