Many citizens of the United States have been left uneasy due to reports of people being forcefully coerced or even bribed into receiving Covid-19 vaccines and booster doses.
Yale Medicine reports that the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has already caused at least sixty instances of life-threatening blood clots, alongside nine confirmed fatalities–and these findings are likely just a fraction of the true number. This means that over 18 million people have experienced potential side effects from this particular shot.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued a “safety signal” alerting the public of possible risks associated with Pfizer’s Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine. Due to the potential risk of ischemic stroke, Fox News reports that individuals 65 years and above need to carefully assess whether or not it’s safe for them to receive the vaccine.
Ischemic stroke is a condition caused by blockages in the blood vessels that supply the brain with oxygen-rich blood. These obstructions may be formed from clots, debris or other foreign particles.
For individuals aged 65 and up, the CDC has identified a potential heightened risk of stroke associated with the Bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine; however, research is still underway. In contrast, no similar signals have been tied to the Bivalent Moderna Covid-19 vaccine thus far.
The CDC concluded that, after the distribution and usage of the revamped bivalent Covid-19 vaccine, its Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) system had seen enough data to warrant another investigation regarding possible safety issues with ischemic strokes in individuals above 65 years old who were vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech’s Bivalent.
“We quickly investigated the signal in the VSD and asked if those aged 65 or older who had received Pizer-BioNTech’s Bivalent Covid-19 Vaccine were more likely to have an ischemic stroke within 21 days of vaccination compared to 22 to 44 days after immunization.”
The CDC still strongly advises everyone to get the vaccine and receive their boosters, even though CNN reported on a new safety signal.
In their statement, the CDC affirmed that a comprehensive examination concerning the Pfizer-BioNTech bivalent vaccines sourced from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services database showed zero heightened chances of ischemic stroke.
The government agency revealed that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) administered by both the CDC and FDA has not observed an increase in ischemic strokes associated with the refined bivalent vaccine.
Pfizer and BioNTech have acknowledged limited instances of ischemic stroke in individuals aged 65 and over who received the BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent Covid-19 Vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech, according to a spokesperson for Fox News Digital. The reports are documented in the CDC’s Vaccine Safety DataLink (VSD) database.
Pfizer and BioNTech, along with the CDC and FDA have not located similar findings in other monitoring systems both domestically or worldwide. As such, there is no evidence to suggest that administration of their Covid-19 vaccinations can result in strokes due to an obstruction of blood flow. The spokesperson further proclaimed these statements as true.
The incidence of ischemic stroke in this elderly population has been lower than what was reported after being vaccinated with the Omicron BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent vaccine, according to research conducted by numerous companies. For these reasons, the CDC strongly recommends that all authorized ages and indications receive vaccination with Pfizer-BioNTech’s Omicron BA.4/BA.5-adapted bivalent Covid-19 vaccine for optimal protection against Covid-19 related risks and illnesses.
