Moderna Dose Recipients Have a High Risk Of Developing Myocarditis

Earlier the previous week Moderna received full vaccination approval from the Medical agencies in the United States. Now major heart inflammatory issues have been detected with Moderna vaccination and are now under the scrutiny of the US CDC. 

The Advisory Committee conducted a meeting on Friday regarding the risks of developing myocarditis after receiving Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

The Moderna vaccine has been found to be at a greater risk of inducing myocarditis than Pfizer but the amount of benefits provided by both vaccines overpowers it, according to the reports.

The risks of any repercussions are reduced greatly considering the immunity it provides to the human body. Myocarditis refers to the condition where the heart muscles undergo inflammation and lead to several health problems.

After conducting research and experiments, it was found that the risk of myocarditis is increased following the second dose of Moderna majorly among the younger citizens in the United States.

The age category involving teenagers and young people is comparatively more likely to be affected by this side effect of the vaccine. Although Pfizer receives a better rating with the least side effects as compared to the other vaccines authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The symptoms of the condition include short breaths, chest pain, heart palpitations, and even fatigue. Well, the side effects are rare but both the vaccines have been linked to it. No deviation of symptoms was observed upon receiving any of the vaccines. 

As per the reports,  the government is urging all the citizens to get themselves vaccinated as soon as possible and receive all the possible shots to increase their immunity levels. Only vaccines can help in fighting against any type of variant of the covid 19. 

After the administration of both doses, the medical authorities are urging all the citizens to receive the booster shots in order to deal with the omicron variant and its subtype which is expected to be 1.5 times more contagious than the original. 

While talking about the effectiveness of Moderna in terms of preventing COVID hospitalizations, it will prevent people from the infection as compared to Pfizer.

Based on the studies conducted, several countries like the UK and Canada have recommended Pfizer for high-risk age groups as it poses less risk of myocarditis. 

The situations and the activity of strains of the original virus are not in the hands of the government and therefore, they too need to find solutions as soon as possible.
