The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) held an emergency meeting on June 18 to discuss reports of heart inflammation after doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
The meeting comes as the CDC looks into cases of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscles, in young people and adolescents who received the shot.
A CDC safety group concluded following the meeting that there’s an “association” between a heart inflammatory condition in adolescents and young adults after they’ve received their second Covid-19 vaccine shot.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on June 25 added a warning to patient and provider fact sheets for Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines indicating an increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination.
The warning notes reports of adverse events suggest increased risks of myocarditis and pericarditis, particularly following the second dose and with onset of symptoms within a few days after vaccination.
There have been more than 1,200 cases of a myocarditis or pericarditis mostly in people 30 and under who received Pfizer’s or Moderna’s Covid vaccine, according to CDC data released by their Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
The data comes from the CDC’s VAERS reporting system, but does not tell the whole story.
VAERS, the CDC’s primary mechanism in the U.S. for reporting adverse vaccine reactions, historically only reports 1% of the total actual adverse events according to a Harvard study.
Some experts say, if VAERS only reports approximately 1% of the total adverse events from vaccines, the hundreds of thousands already reported to VAERS by healthcare professionals could possibly be in the millions.
This latest number of reported deaths among all age groups following COVID-19 vaccines passed the 5,000 mark, according to data released recently.
The newest data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 28, a total of 294,801 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 5,165 deaths. There were 25,359 serious injuries reported, up 3,822 compared with the prior week.
Coronavirus vaccines may be widely available by the fall for U.S. children as young as 6 months, drugmakers say. Some schools may move to mandate the vaccines for children to be able to return to classes without masks.
Many parents say it makes no sense to have their children vaccinated as the infection fatality rate for the virus for all ages is extremely low.
According to all available data, the virus has an infection fatality rate that is either equivalent to, or far less than influenza for most age groups.
The Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) is the total number of deaths divided by the total number of people that carry the infection, regardless of them having clinical symptoms or not. The IFR is the chance of death once you have the virus.
For children, the average IFR is around .001.
It may be even much lower than this considering hundreds of counties are reporting dramatic overcounting of their COVID death totals.
Former Pfizer VP, Dr Michael Yeadon has been making his rounds on various outlets, warning about the reported surge in adverse events from the experimental MRNA vaccines. In a recent appearance, Dr Yeadon spoke about these adverse events, saying that ‘it makes no sense’ to vaccinate children with a vaccine that is statistically ’50 times more likely’ to kill the child than the virus itself.
