The CDC will now be investigating the link between strokes and Covid-19 vaccines after the Vaccine Safety Datalink found signals that raises questions on adverse effects and mRNA vaccines.
Many are surprised to find that the CDC will finally investigate the link between strokes and mRNA vaccines. According to Fox News, "The CDC is now saying there has been enough cases of people who have had the vaccine, received the vaccine, and then suffered a stroke."
The CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) – which was established by the organization itself – conducts studies on rare and adverse events following vaccinations. On January 13, the CDC issued a statement on investigating ischemic strokes and the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine.
As written on their official website, the VSD "raised a question of whether people 65 and older" who have received the bivalent jab "were more likely to have an ischemic stroke in the 21 days" following their vaccination. The CDC added that the data "met the statistical criteria to prompt additional investigation."
Still, the organization believes their current data suggests that "it is very unlikely that the signal in VSD represents a true clinical risk," and the organization will still continue that everyone stays up-to-date with their shots.
In 2022, the American Heart Association announced that there have been new cases of a deadly stroke increasing in both younger and middle-aged adults. So far, the rise in strokes have been blamed on frequent naps, global warming, cold waves, shingles, and alcohol – even though there are existing reports of people getting a stroke following an mRNA vaccine. But judging by the looks of it, many of these findings are likely to be brushed off by the CDC.
