Government watchdog reveals there was no scientific basis for Biden Covid-19 booster recommendation


The Functional Government Initiative, a government watchdog, has reported that the Department of Health and Human Services had no written scientific or academic basis to support Secretary Xavier Becerra’s controversial recommendation for Covid-19 vaccine booster shots every two months.

The revelation came after eight months of investigation and a lawsuit filed by FGI against HHS, shedding light on discrepancies within the Biden Administration’s approach to pandemic policy.

The saga began when on Nov. 28, 2022, Vice President Kamala Harris posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, a message advocating for an annual Covid-19 vaccine shot. Just a day later, Secretary Becerra, who lacks a medical background, took to Twitter with a contrasting message, advocating for booster shots every two months. This significant difference in recommendations raised concerns about the administration’s quality of its public health recommendations.

FGI tried to get information through several Freedom of Information Act requests showing scientific basis for Secretary Becerra’s recommendation. The HHS’s delay in responding to this FOIA request prompted FGI to resort to legal action, compelling the agency to provide an explanation.

After months of legal proceedings, HHS finally responded to FGI with what it said is its “final response.” It had no documents at all “relevant to your request.”

Th official government response has raised questions about the scientific integrity of the recommendation, as well as the commitment of federal officials to base public health decisions on empirical evidence, even if they appear to contradict the Biden agenda.

Peter McGinnis, a spokesperson for FGI, expressed strong criticism over the situation: “The lack of a single record supporting Secretary Becerra’s bold public health recommendation for six Covid boosters a year is a startling development. It is tremendously irresponsible for the government’s chief health official to fire off tweets recommending frequent injections of a new vaccine booster apparently based on no academic or scientific support.”

In 2021, Becerra had to backtrack after he said that “it is absolutely the government’s business” to know which Americans had not been vaccinated against the coronavirus. His comment drew sharp rebuke from Republicans in Congress.

His comments then, along with similar comments from President Joe Biden, who said public health officials would be going door to door to ensure the remaining Americans who had not been vaccinated are given the shot.

“Now, we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus,” Biden said.

Then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki also said at the time that the government would knock on doors, with “targeted, community-by-community, door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated.”

Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona responded, “It’s NONE of the [government’s] business knowing who has or hasn’t been vaccinated.”

“How about don’t knock on my door,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw also wrote on Twitter in response in 2021. “You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?”

On Friday, Aug. 25, 2023, President Joe Biden said he has asked Congress for money to develop yet another Covid vaccine “that works.”


  1. Turns out, there was no scientific basis for any of the Covid nonsense.

    Possibly the greatest con job in world history.

    • With another election looming, we’ll see if Joe heads back to his basement and masks get plastered on people’s faces. The mask plastering has already begun.

    • Avenger: Actually the greatest con job in world history was convincing the public that Fauchi and his ilk had not been conducting experiments with gain of function and that they were not guilty of killing more humans than Josef Mengele…….

  2. There are supposedly 3 new strains of Covid now. Where were they developed? And did Becerra have any ideas of the side-effects of these jabs before recommending them? Of course not! Let’s just see if we can get the sheep to put up with this outrage in addition to cancelling their meat, rice, and other wholesome healthy foods. 2024 can’t come too soon.

  3. It is my opinion that most vaccines are dangerous, and should especially be kept away from children. IMO, they cause FAR more harm than good. Take the time to look into this further. Many people have died from these vacs.

    • It is the vast majority of scientists and doctors with biology and medical degrees that vaccines are safe and effective. I took the time to look into this further and have concluded like the vast majority of medical doctors and biologists have, that is is a lie based on misinformation and a lack of education, that many people have died from these vacs.

      • Truth is not determined by consensus, SawThisB4.
        But ideology and dogma certainly are.

        How does it feel to be a spineless conformist?
        Honestly, I would like to know.

  4. How would anyone be so bold as to go door to door requesting cooperation on a phony “Vax” is beyond belief.
    I cant believe anyone would be so desperate to take a job like that.
    They may as well be asking for money to help with Hunters defense.
    They really dont have a clue of what the h**l they are even thinking.

  5. Covid is/was the biggest scam ever perpetuated on the American people. An exercise in control, indoctrination, manipulation, threats, and a huge transfer of wealth.

    • I wish Trump would have heeded your scam perpetuation, because if he had when he contracted the virus, he would have died in the White House instead of seeking the medical treatment that saved his life.

      • Oh like Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin? Remember when Trump had Covid “the shot” wasn’t available and since your vaunted scientists poo-poohed those as ineffective are you saying that they worked after all OR that Covid was not the scourge it was made out to be??

      • Only conspiracy theorists would believe that a virus was gonna wipe out the world.
        Trump would have been just fine after a week rather than just 3 days.

  6. The left has a fever dream of Trump behind bars in GITMO for the rest of his life.

    I have a similar dream, but it involves holding Fauci accountable for all the damage he’s done. Put him in GITMO and let the “mistreated” terrorists there pass him around on cold nights.

  7. Crenshaw has an excellent point… Toilets, shower heads, light bulbs, ceiling fans, vaccinations….What is it about the left that makes them force things on the public and then proclaim that it is ‘good for us’ and assure us that its all in the name of ‘Democracy’.

    • It is their unbridled arrogance — only THEY know what is best, for themselves but more importantly, for everyone else. The fact that they are consistently and almost invariably wrong never enters into their blinkered and wildly emotional, ideologically-driven minds.

    • It is the inherent superiority complex of the left thinking mind, being utterly convinced that THEIR way, THEIR interpretation and THEIR actions are the ONLY correct ones ever! It speaks to a fragile ego, not secure in their choices, requiring re-affirmation at a constant rate by force if necessary. To admit that others may be smarter, have better ideas or simply find other choices more suitable to their life, can NOT be tolerated.
      Climate change is the perfect example. The climate on this rock we call home has changed for millennia, the polar axis has shifted etc. Yet these activists are determined that this century’s climate is the best it will ever be and needs to be maintained at all costs. The hubris and arrogance is breathtaking and illuminates the true purpose: A grasp for power to control their fellow earth travelers to live ONLY by their ideas and decrees.

  8. If a vax-pusher passes by my two no trespassing signs, they may find themselves looking down the barrel of a firearm. Some trespassers I may be patient with, but I would escort a vax-pusher to the end of my driveway with a warning to never return.

  9. It may be confusing to some people, but the CDC pretty much clearly explains the issue with the never vaccinated and those who’ve only received an initial dose. I invite those that have questions to visit the CDC website, as it’s as available on the internet as any other website.

    To me when I read that the guidelines state an interval of 3-8 weeks between the first of the two-dose series, that means about 1-2 months after the first dose. More than a year after initial pandemic deaths have killed over a million Americans, the next waves of COVID-related deaths seem to be due to those unvaccinated.

    The FDA has just approved RSV vaccines for small children, so hopefully the influenza combination of varieties that provide protection will bear out what is effective in the southern hemisphere’s winter communicable disease immunizations arsenal.

    • Interesting interpretation Mrs. N. You appear to completely discount the natural immunity people have after being exposed to this illness. I also seriously question your predictions regarding the “wave of death amongst the unvacciated” as history clearly showed that death rates had way more to do with age and co-existing condition than vaccination status. I would also like to point out again, that deaths went UP after the “vaccines” where introduced. That’s not what you would expect given the hype of “get vaccinated and you will be protected”. You again do not speak to the issue of the government making it up as they go and per the President finally admitting that more money is needed for a “vaccine that actually works” (his word not mine). For my money if I take a Covid shot it will only be Novavax because it does not use the mrna method but is a more traditional vaccine, like flu, mumps, measles or polio.

    • Mrs. N, you do a great job of parroting ruling class propaganda and disinformation, but endlessly repeating lies does not make them any less untruthful.

      If is a blatant LIE that “over a million Americans” were killed by the Wuhan Virus! By the CDC’s OWN data and admission, only around 6% listed as having died from the virus died DIRECTLY as a result of the virus — and even that figure is based on the unscientific use of the PCR method, which is NOT valid as a diagnostic analysis, by the repeated statements of its inventor, Kerry Mullis, as the means to determine “cases” of the Wuhan Virus.

      EVERYTHING sold to us by the power establishment that you blindly and ignorantly trust about the Wuhan Virus and so-called pandemic has been a lie. A LIE! Not just wrong, but a purposeful, agenda-driven lie.

      Wake up and smell the coffee, gullible Mrs. N. It stinks.

    • Not at all related to anything to do with this conversation.

      Fauci and the CDC mislead the American people constantly, chicken little.

  10. By the way, Mrs. N, here is an utterly damning interview by Naomi Wolf (no “far right winger” by any means) with Dr. James Thorp, on the absolutely devastating effect that the mRNA clot shots (NOT “vaccines”!) have on pregnant women, fetuses, babies, and on fertility in general.

    Not only are US doctors paid to LIE about these devastatingly detrimental effects to their patients, they are threatened with massive financial penalties if they do NOT lie to their patients! The entire medical system in this country is irredeemably corrupt.

    “ “

  11. An intelligent person would visit the CDC ( Covid Disinformation Center) website and do the exact opposite of any of their recommendations!

    • The best comment I have read yet Fishing for Food! Lol Mrs N needs to go get her booster and her new jab because her old shots are definitely losing their effectiveness.
