The FDA just made a shocking admission that seems to have been ignored by the mainstream media.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, getting a flu shot and Pfizers’ Covid bivalent booster on the same day ‘may increase your risk of having a stroke.’
When a separate safety issue was raised regarding the Pfizer vaccine, the FDA conducted a search of vaccine injury databases and made the initial connection.
The Mail Online reports: Earlier this month, one of the country’s vaccine surveillance systems flagged a possible association between the Omicron-specific shot and an elevated risk of an ischemic stroke among seniors over 65.
FDA officials who have been investigating the link said most of the patients had also received their flu shot on the same day, which might be a factor.
Millions of Americans got both shots at the same time this winter following a major public health push by the White House. In September, Dr Ashish Jha, White House Covid Response Coordinator, said: ‘I believe this is why God gave us two arms — one for the flu shot and the other for the Covid shot.’
The FDA is launching a bigger study to examine potential safety problems arising from vaccinating against Covid and flu simultaneously.
The findings will help the agency decide whether to continue with its recommendation to get both vaccines at the same time next winter.
For now health officials are still recommending people get both shots at once because getting infected with flu or Covid also raises the risk of strokes.
