CDC investigating whether COVID jabs put certain age group at risk for stroke

In the wake of multiple reports of people who “died suddenly” after taking a COVID-19 vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Friday that the CDC will be investigating whether the Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech puts people 65 years and older at a greater risk of having an ischemic stroke.

According to the Mayo Clinic, “An ischemic stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes.”

“U.S. government agencies use multiple, complementary safety monitoring systems to help detect possible safety signals for vaccines and other medical countermeasures as early as possible and to facilitate further investigation, as appropriate,” the CDC said. “Often these safety systems detect signals that could be due to factors other than the vaccine itself.”

“Following the availability and use of the updated (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccines, CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), a near real-time surveillance system, met the statistical criteria to prompt additional investigation into whether there was a safety concern for ischemic stroke in people ages 65 and older who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent,” the CDC continued. “Rapid-response investigation of the signal in the VSD raised a question of whether people 65 and older who have received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent were more likely to have an ischemic stroke in the 21 days following vaccination compared with days 22-42 following vaccination.”

The agency reports, “This preliminary signal has not been identified with the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent.”

“Furthermore, it is important to note that, to date, no other safety systems have shown a similar signal and multiple subsequent analyses have not validated this signal,” the CDC stated.

The Pfizer-BioNTech’s global safety database has not identified the safety signal, and, “The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) managed by CDC and FDA has not seen an increase in reporting of ischemic strokes following the updated (bivalent) vaccine,” according to the statement.

A spokesperson for Pfizer told Fox News Digital that the company is aware of the situation.

“Pfizer and BioNTech have been made aware of limited reports of ischemic stroke that have been observed in the CDC Vaccine Safety DataLink (VSD) database in people 65 and older following vaccination with the Omicron BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech,” the spokesperson said.

“Neither Pfizer and BioNTech nor the CDC or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have observed similar findings across numerous other monitoring systems in the U.S. and globally and there is no evidence to conclude that ischemic stroke is associated with the use of the companies’ COVID-19 vaccines,” the Pfizer rep continued. “Compared to published incidence rates of ischemic stroke in this older population, the companies to date have observed a lower number of reported ischemic strokes following the vaccination with the Omicron BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent vaccine. The CDC continues to recommend vaccination with the Pfizer-BioNTech Omicron BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent COVID-19 vaccine for all authorized ages and indications.”

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel cautions anxious Americans that the CDC’s announcement isn’t “proof” of a link between the jab and strokes.

“This is not proof,” he said. “This is that they see there may be a link here, and they want to investigate it, and they’re trying to be transparent.”

Online, Twitter users see it as evidence “of the unraveling narrative.”

“CDC admits vaccines are causing strokes,” tweeted one user. “This is the start of the unraveling narrative.”

Others are angry that the CDC didn’t discover this before the vaccines were mandated.

“I’m no doctor or anything, but shouldn’t the CDC have investigated the Covid vax for strokes *before* they forced it into people’s bodies?” asked one user.

And still others are sad to say “we told you so.”

“People have been trying to talk about this for 2 years now but they were all censored and banned thanks to big tech, the pharma companies, and our own govt,” tweeted the Hodgetwins. “Lock them all up.”
