Avoiding Heart Damage After Your Covid Vaccine

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds increased reported cases of myocarditis and pericarditis following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination, most notably in adolescents and young adults, including in the absence of COVID-19 infection. Myocarditis was only rarely found post-vaccination prior to the COVID mRNA vaccines, and then mostly associated with the smallpox vaccine. Typically and historically, myocarditis patients are older with high prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and heart failure. Myocarditis is an extremely concerning condition. At five years post-diagnosis, myocarditis is correlated with a 72.4% mortality rate, and is therefore correlated with higher mortality than even Type 1 myocardial infarction (rupture of coronary artery plaque with thrombus) or Type 2 myocardial infarction (vasospasm generally), which have 36.7% and 62.5% five-year mortality rates respectively. So myocarditis is likely even more concerning than myocardial infarction. This may be due to the generalized cytotoxic injury, due to external cause, throughout the heart in the myocarditis event, compared to the localized watershed damage affecting a portion of the heart, which is associated with myocardial infarction.
