Retrospective Study: Healthy Boys Face Significantly Greater Risks Associated with COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine than Hospitalization due to SARS-CoV-2

Two board-certified, cardiology-focused physicians, an MPH/epidemiologist and medical writer, and a data analyst came together to dive into the data associated with the risks of myocarditis and pericarditis among adolescents that have received two doses of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. The investigational team of four used the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to conduct a retrospective epidemiological assessment of case reports filed between January 1, 2021, and June 18, 2021. With a focus on adolescents ages 12 to 17, the retrospective observational study centered on those subjects that received mRNA vaccination against COVID-19 (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech). The authors designed a study that involved key search criteria in investigating children with evidence of cardiac injury. Of course, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that a higher probability of myocarditis and pericarditis in young men comes with mRNA-based vaccines. Importantly, the researchers sought to determine in this cohort the risks associated with COVID-19 vaccination versus the risks of hospitalization due to SARS-CoV-2 inf...
