Symptomatic COVID-19 Vaccine Induced Myocarditis
Large Korean Study Confirms Disastrous Outcomes, Risks Higher for Moderna
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
It was a matter of time before better quality data emerged on the myriad of complications after ill-advised COVID-19 vaccination. Fatal cases of myocarditis were reported in series up to ~100 cases, but we have been waiting for national sources of data recognizing that young kids with symptoms severe enough to be seen in emergency rooms and hospitals were just the tip of the iceberg.
Cho and colleagues reported data from Korea in the European Heart Journal, one of the worlds top cardiovascular publications. They described 480 cases from 26 February to 31 December 2021. I testified in the US Senate in 2022 that “one case was too many” and my worst fear has been confirmed. Worldwide there must be tens if not hundreds of thousands of cases that have accrued, and most may not have come to clinical attention.
The incidence data from Cho must be ignored because of incomplete capture and the lack of prospective cohort methods (pre- and post-vaccine assessments in all individuals). Severe COVID-19 vaccine induced myocarditis was identified in 95 cases (19.8%), 85 ICU admissions (17.7%), 36 fulminant myocarditis (7.5%), 21 ECMO therapies (4.4%), 21 deaths, (4.4%), and 1 heart transplantation (0.2%). For young healthy people, these results are horrifying! The survival curves demonstrated higher risks for Moderna compared to the other vaccines.
In summary, the COVID-19 vaccines should have never been administered to young persons without risks of serious respiratory illness. These outcomes confirm COVID-19 vaccine induced myocarditis is leading to death among young persons who unfortunately took one or more injection. Research on myocarditis risk stratification and mitigation is urgently needed.
