Taylor cited work commitments and other public service projects as the reason for her departure.
“While leaving is bittersweet, I am extremely proud of the accomplishments we have made during my time acting as chair of the commission,” she said in the letter. “As chair, I strove to be thoughtful and, most importantly, to leave the Department better than I found it. While there are still miles to go, I leave confident in that being the case.”READ MORE: COVID: FDA Expected To Authorize Mixing Moderna, Johnson & Johnson Booster Shots

Taylor’s resignation leaves two vacant seats within the commission.
