CDC Investigating Cases of Heart Inflammation After COVID-19 Vaccination

CDC Investigating Cases of Heart Inflammation After COVID-19 Vaccination

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has begun an investigation into reports of myocarditis (heart inflammation) in people between 16 and 45 years of age after receiving either the genetically engineered experimental messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) BNT162b2 and mRNA-1273 biologics for COVID-19 developed by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) respectively. The cases involve primarily males and they typically occur within four days of getting the second dose of the shots.1 2 3 4

About 125 cases of myocarditis following vaccination have been reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since January 2021, but public health officials say the relationship between the heart condition and the shots is unclear. At least 17 of the cases reportedly involve members of the U.S. military.4

Symptoms of Myocarditis Similar to Heart Attack

A report by the website Military.com noted that symptoms experienced by the myocarditis patients resemble those of a heart attack, including shortness of breath, fatigue, heart palpitations/arrhythmia chest pain, lightheadedness, swelling in the hands and feet and a sudden loss of consciousness.4

According the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP):

  • 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.
  • Collaboration between infectious diseases, cardiology, and rheumatology specialists is needed to provide guidance on diagnosis, treatment, and management of myocarditis.1

“We look forward to seeing more data about these cases so we can better understand if they are related to the vaccine or if they are coincidental,” said Yvonne Maldonado, MD, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases. “Meanwhile, it’s important for pediatricians and other clinicians to report any health concerns that arise after vaccination.”2 3

Vaccines Can Cause Myocarditis

Amesh Adalja, MD of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security says that vaccines are known to cause myocarditis and that it is important to monitor to see if the heart disorder is causally related to the vaccine. But he adds that it is “difficult” to determine if there is a link between the COVID-19 mRNA biologics because these products do not contain an actual virus like traditional vaccines. The mRNA biologics contain “just a piece of genetic material,” Dr. Adalja says.5 6

Cardiologist Jennifer Wong, MD, acknowledges that cases of myocarditis have been linked to the influenza and tetanus vaccines, but those vaccines are different from the genetically engineered mRNA biologics from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna/NIAID, cardiologist Eliot Peyster, MD says.6 7 8 9

Myocarditis also has been found to be causally related to live virus smallpox vaccine10 and sometimes associated with sudden cardiac death following smallpox vaccinations.11 Myocarditis and sudden cardiac death have also been reported following receipt of the genetically engineered HPV vaccine.12

Israel Also Investigates Post-Vaccination Cases of Myocarditis

The CDC’s investigation of myocarditis after COVID-19 vaccinations comes on the heels of an investigation by the Israeli Ministry of Health involving 62 cases of myocarditis in Israel after receiving Pfizer/BioNTech’s BNT162b2 product. Most of those occurred in individuals up to 30 years of age, and 56 of the cases occurred within days after administration of the second dose.13

    My dear friend, a healthy, strong active man, collapsed shortly after receiving the second Pfizer shot. He must wear a pacemaker now, and is too weak to continue working. As there is no liability, he must pay huge medical bills, and gets no compensation for loss of livelihood. The vaccine makers MUST be made liable for the terrible harm and deaths they cause. Their top management should be made personally liable for the the fraudulent statements about “safe and effective”. The government and media officials should be made liable as well.

    Amazing…we read about investigation after investigation and nothing comes of any of them. The fact is that these fake vaccines were approved using extremely shoddy trials in under 6 months. Meanwhile, it takes the FDA or CDC or whomever, years to do investigations, which are never true investigations as pharma demands no culpability or responsibility for any poisons they distribute.

    Researchers knew all of this long before the pandemic and they still went forward with this experiment!

    “According to researchers at University of Pennsylvania and Duke University, mRNA vaccines have potential safety issues, including local and systemic inflammation and stimulation of auto-reactive antibodies and autoimmunity, as well as development of edema (swelling) and blood clots.4”

    Children’s Health Defense has put out a petition to the FDA to remove the EAU for these experimental jabs. Please sign and pass it around to everybody you know.

    Until we can have honest elections, eliminate corporate lobbying and payoffs to politicians, and abolish the liability shields, Pharma will continue to introduce scamdemic after scamdemic and vaccine (genocide) after vaccine. Bill Gates, et al are getting their wish of worldwide population reduction. God will not long put up with these self-proclaimed gods for long.

    The Salk Institute founded by Jonas Salk “revealed the SARS-CoV2-spike protein is what caused vascular damage in COVID patients and COVID vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that already killed thousands of Americans.

    Critically, all four vaccine brands currently in widespread use either inject patients with the spike protein or, via mRNA technology, instruct the patients own body to manufacture spike proteins and release them into their own blood. This floods the patient’s body with the very spike protein that the Salk Institute has now identified as the smoking gun cause of vascular damage and related events (such as blood clots, which are killing many people who take the vaccines).

    Put simply; it means the vaccines were designed to contain the very element that’s killing people.

    The false assumption of the vaccine industry and its propagandists is that the spike protein is “inert” and harmless. The Salk Institute proves this assumption to be dangerously accurate.

    In an article entitled “The novel coronavirus’ spike protein plays additional key role in illness”‘, published on April 30, 2021, the Salk Institute warns that, “Salk researchers and collaborators show how the protein damages cells, confirming COVID-19 as a primarily vascular disease.”

    Now a major new study shows that the virus spike proteins (which behave differently than those safety encoded by vaccines) also play a key role in the disease itself.

    Agree, the media is the main problem. Stoking fear in order to support a position that ends up forcing people to take some desired government sponsored action. We effectively live in a tyranny these days.

    THANK YOU for your research and keeping citizens informed about the experimental shot.
    Every time people we meet tell us of their “recent” new ailments, our minds can’t help but “wonder” about the shot(s) they took, if there is connection. Recently, a friends spoke of “new” sleep apnea issues, breathing, headache. Hmmm……can’t help but wonder.

    The problem we have is that we are preaching to the converted. Those of us subscribing to sites, such as this one, are aware of the issues surrounding the virus and the “vaccines” but we are still the minority. The majority of people are unaware of the collusion and believe the rubbish being disseminated by mainstream media and, with the censorship applied to social media posts, are unlikely to find the truth, as these people spend their time in front of television and on social media. Should we be able to find a way to overcome this hurdle, I feel sure that the public backlash would be enormous.

    Why can’t people see, listen, and stand against this evil that is being done by the government and evil inventions of the rich that have forced even the medical field operations of those working; such as doctors(so called physicians, and those that administer health to the public to accept the lie that the vaccine will kill the virus. People please stand up for your health and your children’s health, and even the elderly who are subjected to a lie that was started in the early stages of the covid. Your rights are being violated. People are not getting sick for nothing. Reading is fundamental and needs to be taken into consideration knowing that your very health is at stake and will not be supported by the law. The injustice of this very widespread vaccine that obviously became a pawn of evil persuasion to run to medicine that is not even helping society. This vaccine along with other devices has killed your people. You are running into the enemies hand and letting them decide your fate. They have already decided so many of our families fate that have already died. Please read between the lie and outright safety that they claim this vaccine is keeping you safe. The white house representatives did not follow it and neither did other rich people that have an advantage over us with monetary pleasures for themselves. They are not examples at all. Read, read, read. What is really waiting down the line after people have taken the vaccine. There are many culprits deceiving the nation. God will have his way with those that are using evil devices to deceive. Even so read the bible. I suggest you choose Jesus(the word of God), pray, and stand against the evil. God bless and keep all of us.

    I have been quite firmly vilified by at least 2 daughters, at least 2 in-laws and their extended circles. for my blatant outcry regarding the danger of the vaccines, (though I admit I may have disregarded Norman Vincent Peale’s advice in communicating). It is a bit concerning that, I get replies of ‘all lies’; and ‘drop me off email’, as they seem to take the information as personal attacks. Basically, they are follow-the-leader type people, who cite as their authorities high authorities of the LDS church, revered as next to God. They do themselves the dis-favor of stopping their knowledge, in ways, I fear will have health consequences. Time will tell, but time will not undo the possible damage. I personally, will avoid the shot due to to allergies and heart problems, as well as the fact it is not a vaccine at all. Similarly, My wife catches everything from everybody she encounters wherever we go, with her anemic immune system, who I suspect was malnourished ‘after the fire’.in her puberty years.
