A group of researchers at CDC reported that 636 individuals from the COVID-19 mRNA vaccinated people suffered from myocarditis. The U.S health officials will warn the people that the vaccine poses a risk of rare heart inflammation.
The higher cases of the side effects were found in teenagers and young adult males. But the issues can be easily treated and greatly outweighs the benefits offered by the vaccine.
It was stated by disease detective Sara Oliver at the presentation that was aimed at presenting the risks and protections offered by mRNA vaccines.
The mRNA vaccine is made by Moderna in collaboration with Pfizer/BioNTech.
For instance, in one million vaccine doses given to young adult males aged 12 to 17, there are chances of 56 to 69 cases getting heart inflammation.
But, the vaccines could prevent the boys from further risks of covid, hospitalizations, and death. In contrast, girls of the same age group have a lower risk of heart inflammation due to the shots.
According to reports, in one million girls given the shots of mRNA vaccine, 8 to 10 to date have seen to get heart inflammation.
Vaccination will also protect the individuals from a hyper-inflammatory condition called MIS-C. The MIS-C is reported to infect one child in every 3,200 children infected with Covid.
The CDC had discussed the side effects of the vaccine on young people shortly after they got vaccinated. The decision to give the warning of the side effects came after the discussion by the CDC’s advisory committee.
The side effects of the vaccine shots were first reported in Israel and also in other countries, including the U.S.
