Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says that parents should decide if their children receive a COVID-19 booster.

Appearing on Face the Nation on Sunday, Gottlieb said that boosters should not be mandated by schools.

“I certainly don’t think schools should be mandating boosters. I think this should be left up to the discretion of parents and their physicians. You know, it’s going to depend on the individual circumstance,” Gottlieb said during the interview.

He noted that children have a lesser risk from COVID infections.

Gottlieb also stated that cloth masks don’t do much to help stop COVID transmission.

According to a report from the New York Times, the FDA is expected to approve Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine boosters for kids aged 12-15 on Monday.

“Regulators also plan to allow both adolescents and adults to seek an extra shot of Pfizer’s vaccine five months after receiving a second dose instead of the current period of six months. A booster shot is also expected to be authorized for younger children, ages 5 to 11, with immune deficiencies,” the report stated.
