CDC recommends males ages 12- to 39-years-old wait eight weeks between the first and second doses of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines to “decrease the small, but potential risk of myocarditis.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been very busy recently revising recommendations.
The agency recently amended its mask guidelines, now allowing communities to take in to account the level of hospitalizations in an areas rather than just relying on case counts. Now it is recommending that younger males should consider waiting longer between doses of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines to reduce a rare risk of heart inflammation.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its COVID-19 vaccine guidance on Tuesday to recommend that some Americans over the age of 12 who have received a first mRNA vaccine dose, wait up to eight weeks before getting their second dose, instead of the previously recommended three to four.
Several studies suggest that an extended interval between initial dosing may help improve vaccine effectiveness and decrease the small, but potential risk of myocarditis, a rare form of heart inflammation that occurs after vaccination, the agency wrote.
I will note that the mainstream media is stressing “rare” cases of myocarditis. However, an NBC report does indicate that the CDC has found a link between the vaccines and the condition and highlights the reported numbers.
Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle than can result in serious health problems, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Myocarditis most commonly occurs after viral infections, but the CDC has also found a link with between Moderna’s and Pfizer’s shots and myocarditis, particularly after the second dose.
The risk of myocarditis among men ages 18 to 39 is about 1.5 times higher after a second Moderna dose than with Pfizer’s vaccine. Men in this age group report about 68 myocarditis cases per 1 million Moderna second doses administered, compared with 47 myocarditis cases per 1 million Pfizer second doses administered.
Most patients who develop myocarditis after Covid vaccination respond well to medicine and recover fully, according the CDC.
However, I would like to note for the record that this announcement has been made at the end of the week that has included a very robust new cycle centered around Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Additionally, earlier this month, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) had some very pointed questions for Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin about information obtained from three whistleblowers who are all physicians. One of those whistleblowers indicated reported cases of myocarditis in service personnel had been removed from the database.
On Tuesday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), ranking member of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter to Department of Defense (DOD) Secretary Lloyd Austin highlighting concerning reports from three DOD whistleblowers about injuries to servicemen and women potentially related to the COVID-19 vaccines. At the senator’s January 24 roundtable titled COVID-19: A Second Opinion, the senator heard testimony about data from a DOD database showing dramatic increases in medical diagnoses among military personnel.
The senator wrote, “Based on data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), Thomas Renz, an attorney who is representing three Department of Defense (DoD) whistleblowers, reported that these whistleblowers found a significant increase in registered diagnoses on DMED for miscarriages, cancer, and many other medical conditions in 2021 compared to a five-year average from 2016-2020. For example, at the roundtable Renz stated that registered diagnoses for neurological issues increased 10 times from a five-year average of 82,000 to 863,000 in 2021.”
Senator Johnson also raised concerns that “some DMED data showing registered diagnoses of myocarditis had been removed from the database.”
I covered Sen. Johnson’s “Second Opinion” panel earlier this month. A copy of the letter, which includes a break down of health conditions that have exploded in the wake of vaccinations can be found HERE.
Sadly, it appears the global human experiment will continue with no transparency or accountability.DONATE
