Pfizer’s Updated COVID Booster Linked To Potential Stroke Risk, CDC Launches ‘Additional Investigation’

by Zach Jewell, Daily Wire:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Friday that it has launched an “additional investigation” into Pfizer’s updated COVID booster after a government safety monitoring system detected a potential stroke risk for those 65 and older who received the pharmaceutical giant’s bivalent shot.

Bivalent COVID vaccines were authorized by the FDA last August to provide greater protection against the virus as it progressed into different strains, such as the Omicron variant. The updated boosters include a component of the original COVID strain along with a component from Omicron, according to the FDA.
