Fauci, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden, called on Americans to get the shot as soon as possible during a Nov. 22 briefing. The said press conference also served as his last, as the infectious disease expert is set to retire in December.
"My final message, maybe the final message I give you from this podium – is that please for your own safety, for that of your family, get your updated COVID-19 shot as soon as you're eligible to protect yourself, your family and your community," Fauci said. He also reiterated that "the latest boosters offer better protection against new variants than previous shots."
Jha, the White House COVID-19 coordinator, agreed with Fauci's comments. He insisted that "the science" proves "crystal clear" that the shots are "safe and effective."
Moreover, Jha advised reporters during the press briefing to counter the "disinformation and misinformation" of physicians who denounce them for still endorsing COVID-19 vaccines.
"The real leaders of American medicine – the people you trust for your cancer care and your heart care and your pediatrics care – are out there telling you that you need to go get a vaccine," he said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a study on the new bivalent vaccine on the same day, indicating otherwise. The research came with a warning that findings on the new shots "are subject to at least six limitations" – which include vaccination status, previous infection history, underlying conditions as well as low acceptance of bivalent booster doses to date, exposure risk and ever-changing variants, to name a few.
The White House COVID-19 coordinator, however, downplayed the CDC's findings. He remarked that he would love to see any clear outcomes data on the bivalent vaccine, such as a randomized trial, as there are still no such clear data.
However, not everyone was on the same page as the two White House doctors.
Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Marty Makary rebuked the White House COVID-19 coordinator in a tweet. He wrote: "Unfortunate that Dr. Jha is so hostile to differing scientific opinions about boosters in kids, for which we have zero clinical data. Scientific dialog rather than ridiculing other opinions would be better. Forty percent of rural pediatricians do not recommend the COVID vaccine for children."
Even Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine adviser for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted that the bivalent COVID-19 boosters do not offer any benefits whatsoever. He admitted in an interview with CNBC that he voted against approving the bivalent COVID-19 shot.
"Do the benefits of this vaccine outweigh the risks? I didn't see the benefits [and] I feel very strongly about my 'no' vote there. In fact, the only reason I voted no was because 'hell no' was not a choice," he said.
"It just surprised me that we were willing to go forward with this, with such scant evidence of benefit. I think the phrase that I used was 'uncomfortably scant.' You just sort of felt like the fix was in a little bit here. I felt like we were being led here with a critical lack of information."

Offit, a member of the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, also revealed that the agency based its approval of the bivalent COVID-19 shots on data from clinical trials done on eight mice.
"I don't think you should ever ask billions of people to get a vaccine based on mouse data," he said.
