Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine May have higher risk of heart inflammation

WASHINGTON, DC, THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  June 14, 2022 (LSNews)  Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine may pose a higher risk of heart inflammation in some age groups than Pfizer-BioNTech's shot, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Tuesday (June 14), citing recent data.

The agency, however, said that the findings on myocarditis and pericarditis, types of heart inflammation linked with both the mRNA shots, were not consistent across all of the U.S. vaccine safety monitoring systems.

Based on data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) system, the incidence of heart inflammation was 97.3 cases per million doses for males aged 18-39 following a second dose of Moderna's shot, versus 81.7 cases per million Pfizer vaccine doses.

Available information suggests that most people with myocarditis after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination recover over time, the CDC said.

Yet only around 30% of those ages 5 to 11 and 60% of 12- to 17-year olds are fully vaccinated in the United States, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"I'd like to give parents as many choices as possible, and let them make the decisions about this for their children," committee member and UC Berkeley professor Dr. Arthur Reingold said at the meeting.
