The Center for Disease Control revealed over the weekend that it has opened an investigation into multiple reports of myocarditis (inflammation of heart muscles that restricts the organ’s ability to pump blood effectively) in young people and adolescents.
“The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Technical (VaST) Work Group has reviewed post-authorization COVID-19 vaccine safety data on a weekly basis since the start of the U.S. vaccination program,” the CDC said in a statement.
“The VaST session on May 17, 2021, included several presentations on myocarditis following mRNA vaccines, from the Department of Defense (DoD), the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD),” the statement continued. “There were also brief updates from the Veteran’s Administration (VA) and the Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment (CISA) groups about their plans for future investigation of myocarditis.”
The report noted that reports of vaccine-induced myocarditis have occurred “predominantly in adolescents and young adults, more often in males than females, more often following dose 2 than dose 1, and typically within 4 days after vaccination.”
VaSt went on to recommend that “Further information should be collected through medical record review about potential myocarditis cases that were reported into VAERS,” “Information about this potential adverse event should be provided to clinicians to enhance early recognition and appropriate management of persons who develop myocarditis symptoms following vaccination,” and, “Collaboration between infectious diseases, cardiology, and rheumatology specialists is needed to provide guidance on diagnosis, treatment, and management of myocarditis.”
Medical organization America’s Frontline Doctors filed a motion last week seeking a restraining order against the use of COVID vaccines on young children:
Medical advocacy organization America’s Frontline Doctors has filed a motion for a temporary restraining order against the emergency use authorization of COVID vaccines on children under the age of 16, citing numerous side effects and that the fact that young people have 99.997% survivability rate against COVID.
“America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) today filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama requesting a temporary restraining order against the emergency use authorization (EUA) permitting using the COVID-19 vaccines in children under the age of 16, and that no further expansion of the EUAs to children under the age of 16 be granted prior to the resolution of these issues at trial,” the organization’s website announced on Thursday.
AFLDS founder Simone Gold stated, “We doctors are pro-vaccine, but this is not a vaccine. This is an experimental biological agent whose harms are well-documented (although suppressed and censored) and growing rapidly, and we will not support using America’s children as guinea pigs.”
