Know anybody who has had a COVID vaccine who has had a recent surprise heart attack? Rumblings of concern about the increase in scary heart health issues have been talked about quietly for months now here in Sublette County. Non-COVID related deaths are up substantially across the nation.
In late December 2021, British researchers released the results of a huge new study which found that the risk of serious heart problems (myocarditis) in men under age 40 greatly increases with each dose of a COVID mRNA vaccine. The study showed that the risk of myocarditis almost doubled after the first Pfizer shot in men under age 40. Then it doubled again after the second and doubled again after the third. By the third dose the risk was almost eight times the baseline risk. The researchers reported that hundreds of people were hospitalized for myocarditis within four weeks of receiving a Pfizer shot. For the Moderna vaccine, the risks were even higher, 16X after the second shot. They also point out that the risk of hospital admission or death from myocarditis is greatly increased following a COVID-19 infection.
They state the risk of post-vaccine myocarditis is consistently higher in younger males. This calls into serious question the demands of many universities and colleges to require their students be vaccinated before returning to in-person learning. It also raises deep concern for the requirements of the U.S. government and sports organizations putting in vaccine mandates for military, health care workers, athletes, and businesses.
The authors expressed concern that the risk of myocarditis is higher following the second dose of vaccine compared to the first, and expressed an urgent need to evaluate the risk associated with a third dose as booster programs are being pushed with the appearance of the omicron variant of COVID.
