CDC Responds to FOIA Request on Myocarditis Data for Covid Vaccinations With Over 100 Blank Pages

Last month, I reported that a large, multinational study of COVID-19 vaccines from companies like Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca has been linked to rare occurrences of heart, brain, and blood disorders. At this point, most rational health professionals would allow an individual to decide if the risk of heart, brain, and blood disorders outweigh the risk of experiencing COVID without the vaccine in any of its mutations and variations.

However, that study was only one of many that have been done to assess the COVID-19 vaccine side effects. Another project was proposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Myocarditis Outcomes after mRNA COVID-19 Vaccination Investigation (MOVING) in October 2021.

As a reminder, myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle, and pericarditis is inflammation of the lining around the heart. The agency has already released some reports, such as this one in The Lancet, which asserted that virus-caused myocarditis was worse than the one that arose post-vaccination.

Myocarditis after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination is rare yet potentially serious, and although most patients were considered recovered by health-care providers at least 90 days since onset, nearly half of patients continued to self-report symptoms, including chest pain, and a quarter were prescribed daily cardiac medications.

These findings suggest that continued follow-up and assessment of myocarditis after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination is needed to more fully understand recovery after vaccine-associated myocarditis.

From a clinical standpoint, our findings suggest that myocarditis after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination could have a more favourable prognosis than myocarditis after viral infection, based on data available from the pre-COVID-19 period.

However, that same month, Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph A. Ladapo issued a warning to young men receiving covid vaccines, based on an analysis by the state’s health department that indicated they pose an “increased risk” of cardiac-related death.

“Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth,” Ladapo tweeted.
