The United States found that young people who received the Pfizer/BNT or Modena vaccine developed rare symptoms of heart inflammation, and Japan received similar returns. The Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK) reported that 11 men and women between the ages of 25 and 72 who received the Pfizer vaccine nationwide developed symptoms of myocarditis or pericarditis until the 13th of this month, and one 72-year-old woman died, but it was not possible to conclude the relationship with the vaccination The cause and effect relationship could not be determined.
The report pointed out that the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare released information that, until the 13th of this month, 17.14 million people were vaccinated nationwide, and on average, about 1 in every 1.56 million people showed symptoms of heart inflammation.
The 11 people who showed symptoms of myocarditis or pericarditis were between 25 and 72 years old, and 9 of them showed symptoms of heart inflammation after completing the second vaccination, and men accounted for 8 of them.
In addition, there have been no reports of heart inflammation among those who received Modena vaccination until the 13th.
The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said that there are no serious vaccination problems and that the benefits of vaccination are relatively higher than the risks, but that it will continue to monitor information from home and abroad while promoting vaccination. On the other hand, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said that although it is impossible to make a correct comparison, it is impossible to rule out the possibility of a higher incidence of disease in young men after vaccination, so it is urged that those who feel chest pain or difficulty in breathing after vaccination should take the initiative to visit a medical institution.
