A new study by the Food and Drug Administration confirms the concerns of many physicians worldwide of a link between blood clots and the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The researchers examined data covering 17.4 million elderly Americans who had received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine. They found that the incidents of pulmonary embolism, or blood clotting in the lungs, met the initial safety signal, meaning further investigation is warranted, the Epoch Times reported.
After a more thorough evaluation, the statistical signal continued to meet the criteria. Researchers said three other outcomes initially raised red flags but did not meet the statistical threshold: a lack of oxygen to the heart, a blood platelet disorder called immune thrombocytopenia, and another type of clotting called intravascular coagulation.
The FDA, however, said it will not act on the results because they don’t prove the vaccines cause any of the four outcomes. The agency said the findings, published by the journal Vaccine, “are still under investigation and require more robust study.”
Without citing any evidence, the authors said the FDA “strongly believes the potential benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the potential risks of COVID-19 infection.”
The researchers found the safety signals were detected only after the Pfizer vaccination. No concerns arose in their analysis of the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
The safety monitoring website run by the FDA and the CDC, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), has 1,886 reports of pulmonary embolism after receipt of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine as of Dec. 9.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, Biden health adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and other federal health officials, however, have downplayed the VAERS reports while refusing to answer how many people they believe have been injured or have died from the vaccines. The swine flu shot was discontinued after it was associated with three dozen deaths. VAERS has reports of more than 30,000 deaths linked to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Peter McCullough, a prominent cardiologist, and epidemiologist commented on the new FDA study in the Epoch Times.
He said it “corroborates the concerns of doctors that the large uptick in blood clots, progression of atherosclerotic heart disease, and blood disorders are independently associated with COVID-19 vaccination.”
McCullough has called for the suspension of the COVID-19 vaccines, and he believes they are the best explanation for the “sudden and unexpected” deaths and cardiac events in otherwise healthy people.
Last week, a member of the British Parliament alleged a senior member of the British Heart Foundation covered up a report showing the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine increases inflammation of the heart arteries.
The lawmaker, Conservative Party MP Andrew Bridgen, claimed the cover-up was motivated by financial links with “Big Pharma.” He pointed out that the swine flu vaccine was withdrawn in 1976 for causing Guillan-Barre syndrome in 1 in 100,000 adults. In 1999, Bridgen recalled, the rotavirus vaccine was withdrawn for causing a form of bowel obstruction in 1 in 10,000 children.
