Pfizer's bivalent Covid booster could increase the risk of a stroke in recipients over age 65, officials report.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials cited vaccine safety database data that showed an increased risk of ischemic stroke in the elderly within three weeks of getting the shot.
An ischemic stroke, also known as brain ischemia, is caused by blockages in arteries that carry blood to the brain.
The safety concern requires more investigation and 'the totality of the data currently suggests that it is very unlikely that the signal … represents a true clinical risk', CDC wrote in a statement.
Officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told the Washington Post that there may not be reason for alarm - and the noticed uptick could be a statistical anomaly.
The CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink detect the uptick, with officials saying it met thresholds needed to spur further investigation.
'We believe it is important to share this information with the public, as we have in the past, when one of our safety monitoring systems detects a signal,' the agency wrote.
Vaccine adverse effect trackers from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Department of Veterans Affairs did not show an elevated risk.
Pfizer and BioNTech said in a statement that they have been made aware of limited reports of ischemic strokes in people 65 and older following vaccination with their updated shot.
'Neither Pfizer and BioNTech nor the CDC or the FDA have observed similar findings across numerous other monitoring systems in the US,' Pfizer added.
'Globally and there is no evidence to conclude that ischemic stroke is associated with the use of the companies' COVID-19 vaccines.'
This safety concern has not been identified with Moderna's bivalent shot. Both vaccines were authorized in late-August by the FDA.

How many gerbils was this tested on?
Will the CDC be banned from social media?
( Almost every stroke reported to the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is recorded post Covid 'vaccine' administration.)
† Because some cases have multiple vaccinations and symptoms, a single case can account for multiple entries in this table. This is why the Total Count is greater than 3,352 (the number of cases found), and the Total Percent is greater than 100.
>>> Well, what do we have here?
CDC throwing Phizer under the bus???
or they are just “acting” like they are oblivious to the fact they helped push a biological weapon.
Waiting for the democrat/media/big pharma/Faux-xi cheerleaders on here to say the death serum is perfectly safe with 98% efficacy.
The Fox investigating the ‘baffling’ slaughter of all those Chicken Coops.
What did the Fox say?
Fox. Hen house.
“How many gerbils was this tested on?”
Beagle pups. The NIH is still torturing Beagle pups.
This isn’t going to help Dr Fubar’s stock portfolio
Time to increase PSA money for the vax zombies
Isn’t it amazing that every drug on the planet is required to state possible side effects on their packaging and in their ads EXCEPT the Covid vax?
yep. Just what will it take to get through to these people? The vax is far worse than covid for most people. It is now absolutely obvious. Yet, they persist. Fear of being wrong is apparently a stronger motivation than caring about people’s lives.
Pfizer is a criminal enterprise.
Just follow the link from those dying under 65.
seniors? high school seniors is where they should start.
AND FOX has Fauci back on TV to explain everything? What a joke! I thought the guy was going to ride off into the sunset with his fat pension!
See how dangerous sleeping is?
Look how many people die in their sleep. It is clearly a major source of died suddenly deaths.
People need to stop sleeping.
At 30,000 feet, the game is an obvious play to reduce the burden on social security. / cynic
Very good point.
And, stop taking fentanyl, before bedtime.
