mRNA Covid vaccines increase rate of myocarditis 133 times, CDC admits

Reading time: 1 minute

The mRNA Covid vaccines can increase the chances of myocarditis (heart inflammation) by as much as 133 times in boys aged up to 15 years, the CDC has admitted.  Older males also face a dramatically increased risk after having either a Pfizer or Moderna jab.

Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admit the real risk could be far higher still because of under-reporting of adverse reactions.  Most cases happened after the second dose.

The greatest risk was among adolescent boys aged between 12 and 15 with reported myocarditis cases that were 133-fold higher than would be expected.  Cases were 79 times higher among teenage boys aged between 16 and 17, and there was a 32-fold increase in young men aged between 18 and 24.

There were 1,991 cases of myocarditis reported to the US’s VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) system and, of these, the CDC researchers confirmed that 1,626 met the criteria of a definite case.  The average age of the cases was 21, and 82 percent were male, and a similar rate happened after a second dose.

Despite the explosion in cases, the researchers admit the true numbers could be such higher still as there is a notorious under-reporting to VAERS.  

Most cases were mild and, of the deaths linked to the mRNA vaccine, none had myocarditis, the researchers said.
