Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate, we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

FALSE Claim via Social Media: The Pfizer COVID-19 bivalent vaccine causes strokes.

Health Feedback rating: Unsupported (A safety signal provided by one particular pharmacosurveillance system isn’t sufficient to conclude that an actual risk exists. Monitoring systems are designed to be sensitive and this can lead to occasional false alarms. Further analysis and comparison with other systems are required.)

The Pfizer bivalent vaccines are very unlikely to increase the risk of ischemic stroke, contrary to claims on social media

Claim via Social Media: Rep. Lauren Boebert said that “a mass shooting is a small price to pay to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.” rating: False (She did not say that.)

AFP Fact Check rating: False (Dr. Malone is a frequent purveyor of disinformation, as is the case here where he misrepresents the guidance.)
