What about No­vavax? Vac­cine com­pa­ny's boost­er is left out of FDA ac­tion on Pfiz­er, Mod­er­na shots

The FDA’s ac­tion Mon­day clear­ing Mod­er­na and Pfiz­er/BioN­Tech’s lat­est mR­NA-based Covid-19 boost­ers begged a very large ques­tion: Why didn’t the agency act on No­vavax’s boost­er?

The agency’s an­nounce­ment made no men­tion of No­vavax’s shot, de­spite the com­pa­ny sub­mit­ting its boost­er ap­pli­ca­tion and ex­pect­ing a de­ci­sion soon. Al­though an ACIP meet­ing is sched­uled Tues­day to set a rec­om­men­da­tion for this year’s boost­ers, No­vavax said it doesn’t ex­pect to get an an­swer be­fore then.
