The province says the rise of myocarditis and pericarditis cases has been particularly observed among men in that age group. Between June and August, the province says the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis for men aged 18 to 24 following a second dose of Moderna was one in 5,000. There have been no fatalities.
“I’m not holding any facts back, there is a risk,” said Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health.
In comparison, the risk of myocarditis and pericarditis for people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was one in 28,000.
Moderna 18-24 yr old Vaxed heart side-effect chance: = 20/100,000
Pfizer 18-24 yr old Vaxed heart side-effect chance: = 3.5/100,000
The risk of a heart condition from the vaccine is still substantially lower than the risk of a heart condition should a person contract COVID-19, Moore explained.
Only two in every 100,000 people experience the side effect, Moore said. And they typically recover quickly with “simple over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen,” he said. There have been no hospitalizations and no fatalities.
Meanwhile, Moore said 11 in every 100,000 people contract “moderate to severe” COVID-19 and “often end up needing hospitalization.” He said that between 10 and 20 per cent of those people requiring hospitalization have heart inflammation.
All ages vaccinated heart side-effect chance: = 2/100,000
All ages UNvaccinated heart side-effect chance: = 2/100,000
How to lie with statistics:
The general public has exactly the same chance to get heart problems vaccinated or unvaccinated, WHILE YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE A 10x higher chance with Moderna and yet the article somehow has a positive spin… for vaccines.
