The FDA seeks advice from, outside experts through meetings of the FDA advisory committees. These experts include physicians, researchers, and statisticians and those who can give perspective of the patient, consumer, or industry.
The meeting was held to set up a review and then evaluate data concerning effectiveness, safety, and appropriate use of vaccines and the biological products which are intended for the use in the prevention, treatment, or diagnosis of human diseases. The public can witness the process and know that a safe vaccine is being sought for use to stop this pandemic….Carol
