CDC Confirms Myocarditis and Pericarditis Following Pfizer Vaccines in Children

A report out Thursday shows the adverse reaction in children ages 5-11 years old


On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was aware of eight cases of heart inflammation, called myocarditis, in children who have been vaccinated. The report specifically included children under age 11 who were vaccinated against COVID-19 with Pfizer-BioNTech. 

The cases, which were reported in the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), presented “a mild clinical course,” as reported by Reuters.

The CDC then presented the cases to a panel of its expert advisers for consideration.

In November, the CDC also discovered cases of myocarditis and pericarditis in relation to the COVID-19 vaccine, prompting an update to its ongoing inquiry into the adverse reaction to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. 

According to VAERS, symptoms for both heart conditions include chest pain, shortness of breath and feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart. 

The cases reported to the CDC via the VAERS portal have occurred in young adults and especially male adolescents. Most cases occurred within a week after receiving either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna Vaccines. 

According to the CDC, most patients affected by the inflammation “felt better quickly” after receiving medication and rest. However, the CDC did not indicate if there was a resolution to the cardiac inflammation caused by the vaccine reaction. 

It is advised that myocarditis patients speak with a cardiologist before resuming exercise or sports.

Even with these newly reported inflammatory side effects, the CDC continues to recommend all parents have their children 5-years and older vaccinated against COVID-19. Their recommendation states that the long-term risks of the virus overshadow the side effects of the shot. 

“The known risks of COVID-19 illness and its related, possibly severe complications, such as long-term health problems, hospitalization, and even death, far outweigh the potential risks of having a rare adverse reaction to vaccination, including the possible risk of myocarditis or pericarditis,” according to the CDC.

The CDC does advise speaking to your health care provider or a pediatrician if any concerns arise with the COVID-19 vaccinations.

This CDC report on inflammation among children comes just a day after CDC recommended Pfizer and Moderna vaccines over Johnson & Johnson’s due to the risk of blood clotting following the vaccine.

    By all means, I will believe an agency that has lied and mishandled covid from almost the beginning,now that they have been forced to tell the truth. Healthy children building a healthy immune systems do not need a vaccine for an illness that the death rate for them is what .001%? I believe the vaccine is needed more for a corrupt, authoritarian government in association with the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex-for their “own good”.

    And they’ll blame it on global warming, weed, video games, and racism.

    It makes no sense to recommend a medication to “prevent” a sickness that mildly effects kids in the 1st place. Which of course the medication has proven it doesn’t actually do. Or maybe to prevent the transmission of said sickness, but wait it doesn’t do that either. So please pray tell what is the point in the 1st place?

    Why am I not surprised that this corrupted institution made sure to throw that in there? Remember this is the institution that changed guidance based on what the teachers’ union wanted.

    “The vaccine threatens a major vital organ in children. Also, yes, we really want you to use this on your children.”
    The left keep proving that they HATE children every chance they get.
