CDC data indicates that there have been more than 1,200 cases of a myocarditis or pericarditis following vaccination with mRNA shots from Moderna and Pfizer, with the majority cases occurring after the second dose. Males under 30 make up the bulk of the cases. For both vaccines combined, there were 12.6 heart inflammation cases per million doses. Of the 295 people who have developed the condition and have been discharged, 79% of them have fully recovered and nine were hospitalized, with two in intensive care, according to the agency.
  • 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-19 vaccine, according to CDC data.
  • Roughly 300 million of the shots had been administered as of June 11, the agency said.
  • For both vaccines combined, there were 12.6 heart inflammation cases per million doses.

A CDC safety group said there’s a “likely association” between a rare heart inflammatory condition in adolescents and young adults mostly after they’ve received their second Covid-19 vaccine shot, citing the most recent data available.

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 a series of slide presentations published Wednesday for a meeting of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle, while pericarditis is the inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.

“Clinical presentation of myocarditis cases following vaccination has been distinct, occurring most often within one week after dose two, with chest pain as the most common presentation,” said Dr. Grace Lee, who chairs the committee’s safety group. CDC officials are gathering more data to fully understand the potential risks, how to manage it and whether there are any long-term issues, she said.

1200 cases out of 300 million shots (is that each shot of the two or two shots counted as one patient?) may seem like a fraction of the total shots, but to a family whose teenager is injured, it is devastating. And if they supposedly recover, I suspect their heart is still weakened by such an episode. This means they won’t know for years whether it will impact the length of their life over what it would have been without the shot.
