The CDC's top vaccine advisors have scheduled an emergency meeting for Friday, June 18, about reports of myocarditis and pericardium, or heart inflammation, young people after they received Pfizer or Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.
The CDC says it knows of at least 800 reports of heart inflammation after Covid-19 vaccination. Of those, 226 cases of myocarditis were reported in age 30 and under after vaccination with the two "RNA" medicines.
According to CDC, the rate of myocarditis and pericarditis for patients between age 16 and 24 is higher than normal after Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccinations.
The advisory panel will also discuss the overall benefit vs. risk profile for the RNA vaccines in adolescents and young adults.
So far, CDC has dismissed reported Covid-19 side effects as coincidental or said that the benefits of the vaccines still outweigh the risks.
Several months ago, the CDC's entire vaccine advisory panel, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), signed off on false information about what studies showed about Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness in people who'd already had Covid-19. Studies did not show the vaccines are effective in for those patients, but the panel published a report saying the opposite.
Two of the CDC's experts scheduled to make presentations at the June `8 meeting, Dr. Sara Oliver and Dr. Amanda Cohn, directly, repeatedly distributed false information to physicians and members of the public regarding Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness in people who'd already had Covid-19. However, the CDC has not reported holding anybody accountable.
