But he has insisted for months that the White House will always follow the advice of government scientists, wherever it leads. Asked about the meeting, a White House spokesman said on Friday, “We always said we would follow the science, and this is all part of a process that is now underway,” adding that the administration was awaiting a “full review and approval” of booster shots by the F.D.A. as well as a recommendation from the C.D.C. “When that approval and recommendation are made,” the spokesman, Chris Meagher, said, “we will be ready to implement the plan our nation’s top doctors developed so that we are staying ahead of this virus.” Less than three weeks ago, Mr. Biden said that contingent on F.D.A. approval, the government planned to start offering boosters the week of Sept. 20 to adults who had received their second shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine at least eight months ago. That would include many health care workers and nursing home residents, as well as some people older than 65, who were generally the first to be vaccinated. Administration officials have said that recipients of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine would probably be offered an additional shot soon as well. Mr. Biden cast the strategy as another tool that the nation needed to battle the highly contagious Delta variant, which has driven up infection rates , swamped hospitals with Covid-19 patients and led to an average of more than 1,500 deaths a day for the past week, according to a New York Times database. “The plan is for every adult to get a booster shot eight months after you got your second shot,” he said on Aug. 18, adding: “It will make you safer, and for longer. And it will help us end the pandemic faster.” But the announcement of a late September target date for starting the booster campaign set off alarm bells inside the F.D.A. — apparently playing a role in decisions by two of its top vaccine regulators, announced this week, to leave the agency this fall. Both Dr. Woodcock and Dr. Walensky helped draft the plan and publicly endorsed it. Some public health experts have said that by doing so, they increased pressure on scientists weighing the evidence for boosters in their respective agencies to go along with the administration’s strategy. “Now those agencies are in a box,” said Dr. Steven Joffe, a professor of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania.

"It's a miracle. He's alive. It's amazing," AJ's father, Anthony Elfalak, told the media, Seven News reported . "I've been in the bush for four days, I haven't slept," he added. He said his son was suffering from diaper rash and ant bites, and had fallen over. Alan Hashem, a family friend, told Seven News he felt "incredible" that AJ had been located. "But we still need to find out what happened, we need answers," Hashem said. "How did he leave? Who did he leave with? Did anything sinister happen? "We will not stop until we find the truth," Hashem added. "Thank you to every Australian that was praying, because miracles do come true." AJ was found in the Australian bush , an unforgiving environment known for its steep terrain and dense forests. NSW Police Superintendent Tracy Chapman said in a press conference that she felt "relief" when he was located. "Obviously after three days, you know, desperate to find him, desperate to get an outcome such as this, so certainly standing here today, it's a good news story," Chapman said. "I think (being) so close to water is potentially what gave him that opportunity to survive," she added. AJ's parents embrace after hearing their son had been found alive. Paramedic Gerry Pyke, from NSW Ambulance, told reporters AJ was in "remarkable" condition when he was found. "He is a little survivor," Pyke added. "He was very, very thankful, you could see that in his eyes." Pyke said AJ had been taken to a nearby hospital as a "precautionary" measure. "Our family is together again. For that we are grateful to everyone who has assisted in any way over the last three days," the boy's family said in a statement.

An illustration of a train shaped like a syringe. This is the Winchester Works in New Haven, Conn., a stone’s throw from Yale University. It’s a relatively new piece of a long ecosystem that stretches from the labs of East Cambridge, just northwest of Boston, the entire 450 miles down to the halls of the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration in Washington. SEE ALSO: Pacific Western Bank Provides $89M Loan on Denver Rental Development Life sciences, often called bioscience, or the study of ways to fight disease and help people live longer and more energetic lives, has become a dominant obsession in both real estate and city halls across the country, as local officials look for ways to add a new and growing sector to their local economies. The battle has taken on a new sense of urgency with the rise of the coronavirus, and the emptying out of cities, like New York, reliant on finance and other office-using industries. Hardly anyone is going to conduct experiments at home when they have a laboratory at their disposal. But, from the perspective of life sciences entrepreneurs, it’s less important for an individual city to have all the support a growing life sciences company needs than for such things to be accessible in general. It’s not a border war. It’s not New York vs. Boston vs. Philly vs. New Haven, or what have you.
