A peer-reviewed MIT analysis of data in heavily vaccinated Israel found COVID vaccines were “significantly associated” with a 25% rise in emergency care services for heart problems in 16-39 year-olds, amid a variety of claims of an unexpected increase in cardiac incidents among young people.
There was a “statistically significant rise of over 25%” in emergency calls for cardiac arrest and acute coronary syndrome during the vaccination rollout period for that age group, which ran from January to May 2021.
Tom Shimabukuro, MD, deputy director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, who presented information on the cases to an expert panel that advises the FDA on vaccines said, the side effect appears to be more common in teen boys and young men than in older adults and women and may occur in 16 cases for every 1 million people who received a second dose.
Tell-tale symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and fever.
Certain traits, according to William Schaffner, MD, an infectious diseases specialist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, indicate a “rare, but true” signal. For starters, the episodes are clustering, with the majority occurring within days following immunization. Second, they are more common in males and the younger generation. Third, he claims, the number of events is higher than the “background rate,” or the number of cases that would be expected in this age group even if they were not vaccinated.
“I don’t think we’re quite there yet. We haven’t tied a ribbon around it, but I think the data are trending in that direction,” he said.
The issue of myocarditis weighed heavily on the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee’s considerations of what kind and how much data might be needed to green-light use of a vaccine for COVID in children.
Last night a painful reminder that COVID isn’t done w/ us
23 yo previously healthy p/w severe cardiomyopathy➡️ cardiac arrest. COVID sx for prior 6 days
This outcome is 100% preventable. I wish, somehow, we could have gotten him vaccinated

In a report by WND, an American Airlines captain who died of cardiac collapse six minutes after arrival at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport blamed the COVID-19 shot that his firm ordered personnel to receive.
One of the doctors that attended the pilot following the April 9 incident was world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, a vocal opponent of COVID vaccinations. While confirming the cause of his heart attack is challenging, McCullough believes his situation fits a trend. In the absence of coronary disease, the best explanation, according to the doctor, is the vaccine.
The MIT study states that Israel’s Ministry of Health has already determined that males aged 16 to 24 had an increased risk of myocarditis after receiving the second dose of an mRNA vaccine.
The researchers said the increase in emergency calls in January 2021 “seems to track closely the administration of 2nd dose vaccines.” A second observed increase, beginning April 18, “seems to track an increase of single-dose vaccination to individuals who recovered from COVID-19 infections.” The Israel Ministry of Health approved the single-dose after infection for ages 16 and up in early March 2021.
Out of more than 12 million doses administered to youth ages 16 to 24, the CDC says it has 275 reports of heart inflammation following vaccination in this age group. The CDC has analyzed a total of 475 cases of myocarditis after vaccination in people under age 30 that were reported to VAERS.
