Is­rael, EU drug reg­u­la­tors find no link be­tween Pfiz­er Covid shot and stroke

One week af­ter the FDA and CDC found a po­ten­tial safe­ty con­cern link­ing is­chemic stroke in old­er adults to the up­dat­ed Pfiz­er vac­cine, Is­rael and EU drug reg­u­la­tors an­nounced they had not found a link be­tween the two.

Is­chemic strokes oc­cur when blood clots or oth­er par­ti­cles block the blood ves­sels to the brain.

Reuters first re­port­ed on Thurs­day that an Is­rael health min­istry of­fi­cial said there were no links found be­tween the vac­cine made by Pfiz­er and its Ger­man part­ner BioN­Tech, and strokes.
