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.

“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 said in a statement

The concerning VSD signal has caused the agency to question whether those 65 and older who received Pfizer’s bivalent COVID vaccine were at an increased risk of having an ischemic stroke up to three weeks after their vaccination compared to 22-44 days after the shot. The CDC said Moderna’s bivalent COVID vaccine was not identified for the same risk by its monitoring system.
