CDC says heart inflammation among teens higher than expected after 2nd vaccine dose… so Moderna says let’s expand it down to 12 year olds

Do you remember when the Johnson & Johnson vaccine distribution was halted because of 6 clots out of 6.8 million doses administered? Well there are hundreds of teens experiencing heart inflammation shortly after receiving their 2nd dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and we just keep trucking along. It’s nearly three times higher than what was expected.

There have been a higher-than-expected number of cases of heart inflammation in 16- to 24-year-olds after receiving their second dose of Pfizer’s or Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday, citing preliminary data from its vaccine safety monitor system.

The CDC has received reports of 275 cases in that age group as of May 31, the agency said in a presentation prepared for a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel meeting Thursday. Scientists expected between 10 and 102 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis — where the heart muscle or the lining surrounding it become inflamed, according to the CDC.

Let’s not be concerned about this at all and let them move the age groups all the way down to newborns.

Moderna announced Thursday that it has requested an “emergency use authorization” from the Food and Drug Administration for its COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 12-17.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine already has won FDA authorization for kids as young as 12. Providing access to vaccines for children is a crucial component in the effort to normalize in-classroom learning for the 2020-21 school year, little more than two months away in some school districts.

After all… it’s more important to vaccinate the section of the population that is the least vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 and the least likely to have severe cases of COVID-19 than to just let them live. Let’s inject them with an experimental vaccine because the danger from the illness is higher than the danger from the experiment. What a load of bullshit!

“We still don’t know whether this is truly related to the vaccine,” Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said during a virtual Q&A event on May 27. He added that the “handful” of cases reported have been “very mild, lasting a day or two” and usually happened after a second dose.

Health experts say finding rare side effects once a vaccine or drug is administered to the general population is common and if myocarditis turns out to be related to the Covid vaccine, the risk is negligible when compared with the risks of being infected with Covid-19.
