The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) announced Friday that they found a possible link between the new Pfizer-BioNTech bivalent Covid-19 vaccine and strokes in people 65 and over.
The CDC said in a statement that its vaccine safety monitoring system picked up a “safety signal” that prompted an investigation into Pfizer’s bivalent vaccine.

Specifically, the surveillance system “raised a question of whether” stroke risk was elevated in the 21-day period post-vaccination compared with 22-44 days post-vaccination.
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.
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 22-44 following vaccination.
The CDC added that the “signal” wasn’t found in Moderna’s bivalent vaccine.
House Energy and Commerce Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) responded to the announcement, saying both the CDC and FDA would be questioned by the committee over their investigation into Pfizer’s bivalent vaccine.

“These agencies must rapidly investigate, in an open and transparent manner, whether or not the vaccine may have contributed to the reported strokes,” McMorris Rodgers said in a statement.
“If there’s one lesson that the CDC and FDA should have taken away from the pandemic, it’s the importance of providing honest, clear, precise, and timely information to the American people about the potential risks and benefits of COVID-19 interventions, including vaccination,” she added.
Despite its announcement of an investigation into Pfizer, the CDC still insisted everyone over 6 months of age take the experimental COVID shot.
“No change in vaccination practice is recommended. CDC continues to recommend that everyone ages 6 months of age and older stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccination; this includes individuals who are currently eligible to receive an updated (bivalent) vaccine.”
