New Times: Adolescents get myocarditis after vaccination CDC investigates link

The U.S. earlier this month approved a vaccine against the Chinese Communist virus (COVID-19) for children between the ages of 12 and 15. “The New York Times quoted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as reporting that the center is reviewing dozens of reports of possible myocarditis in adolescents and young adults after vaccination.

Citing a statement from the CDC’s vaccine safety department, the New York Times reported that the number of problematic cases is likely to be “relatively small” and not related to vaccination at all.

New Times added that the CDC’s assessment is still in the preliminary stages and has not yet made a determination on whether there is evidence that the vaccine caused myocarditis.

Reuters has not been able to contact the CDC for comment.

The problem of myocarditis appears to occur mainly in adolescents and young adults about four days after the second dose of the vaccine, whether they were given the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Both of these are mRNA vaccines.
