CDC To Hold “Emergency Meeting” After 100s Suffer Heart Inflammation Following COVID Vaccines

Source: ZeroHedge.

This story bears watching. It has long been theorized that the mRNA vaccines created for Covid-19 might themselves cause vascular disease. We may now be seeing evidence to support that speculation. There are also ethical questions to work through. Even if the risk of myocarditis or pericarditis is low, is it ethical to vaccinate children and young adults who, as a group, face little risk from Covid-19 as well as pose little risk to others?

  1. So far out of 130 million people being vaccinated NOBODY has died of this POSSIBLE complication. The ethics are not in the least unclear. That “little risk” of the disease and the risk of its spread by the unvaccinated is infinitely greater than the known risk of the vaccination. Any number divided by zero equals infinity. The actual risk to an infected child is approximately 1% for serious illness requiring hospitalization. At least 300 children have died.

    Speaking of “ethical questions” – Everybody should quit scratching around for reasons to not get vaccinated and just do it. Lives will continue to be lost unnecessarily every day until we achieve herd immunity and vaccination is the quickest and safest way to get there.

      Who cares about that? The issues to be addressed concern the next batch of people to become vaccinated.

      Many believe we have already reached herd immunity in the U.S.

        Uh, that would be people who want to assess the risks based on evidence.

        “Many believe we have already reached herd immunity in the U.S.”
        And probably the same “many” who believe that Trump won the election. More, to the point, what uninformed people believe has no impact on what is true and what is not. If you have actual scientific evidence that we have achieved herd immunity, please share. But, as far as I can tell there is no such evidence. Here is some informed opinion.

        And, BTW, get vaccinated.

        1. According to the CDC, about half of the U.S population today is fully vaccinated. According to the Mayo Clinic, about another 10% have natural or post-infection immunity. In combination 60% or more are immune. That’s the low range of the herd immunity threshold, according to most estimates.

          1. The true low range is 75%. But you have you beliefs and the rest of us have the truth.

            And while 50% of the country is vaccinated and another 10% MAY have natural immunity, there are several pockets around the country where 50% is a pipe dream due to vaccine hesitancy. Unless that 75% are immune either through vaccine or natural immunity, there will still be an issue with transmission.

            Most doctors are also advising even those who contracted the virus to get immunized.

            In that case, you should have no trouble finding an authoritative source that says that we have achieved herd immunity. Can you?

            Here is a hint. You can’t. No authoritative source is going to claim that we have reached herd immunity with cases and deaths again on the rise.

            With this evidence available we can unequivocally state that what “many people believe” is just plain dumb.

            Dumb? Why, because you say so?

            You claim herd immunity doesn’t exist and say that “vaccination is the quickest and safest way to get there.” The problem is you may be wrong, and you certainly have no credentials to be taken seriously on this issue. In particular you neither recognize nor are qualified to assess the contribution of natural immunity.

          4. It is DUMB to say we have achieved herd immunity because the cases and deaths are still substantial AND have been increasing. Anyone who understands the concept of herd immunity is qualified to understand that these FACTS contradict the idea that we are there.

            To prove it is not dumb, cite one authoritative source who says that we have done it. Yay!

            I don’t have to. I haven’t asserted that herd immunity has been achieved, only that many believe it has. YOU, on the other hand assert it has not been achieved, but offer no authoritative evidence for the assertion.

            The burden is on you to prove the negative you apparently believe in.

          6. To recap . . .

            I stated that lives will continue to be lost until we achieve herd immunity and that vaccination is the quickest and safest way to get there. That is the best SCIENCE we have.

            Your rebuttal . . . “Many believe we have already reached herd immunity in the U.S.”

            My response . . . “What uninformed people believe has no impact on what is true and what is not.”
            And I challenged you to provide evidence that what many believe is true. I also provided a link to an objective assessment of the question.

            Your response – We ARE in herd immunity because the low range of some estimates of what is needed to achieve it is 60% immunity ( a figure you seem to have made up because authoritative sources put it much higher)

            So now the burden is on YOU to prove that we ARE in herd immunity and, of course, you can’t because we aren’t. And the evidence that we are not has been provided – rising cases and deaths in significant numbers.

            And all this nonsense because either you are afraid to be vaccinated or like millions of self-destructive dummies you think helping President Biden fight for our lives is disloyal to Dear Leader Trump. Or both.

        And they would be wrong. False beliefs based on alternative facts are dangerous and unhealthy.

          1. Simply because it is FACTUAL. I understand that concept is alien to you and many more on the right. The scientific community has stated numerous times that to achieve herd immunity, we need to be at 75% or better. Your math, like your facts don’t add up.

            What may have been achieved is HEARD immunity. As in “I heard this about immunity so it must be true. Because Tucker Carlson told me so.”

  2. Many viruses cause transient myocarditis, at any given time, between 10 and 22 of 100,000 people tested will prove positive, and over time, it is likely that a large portion of the population will have had an incident without even knowing.

    So, to make a decision, we would have to evaluate the incidence in vaccinated people vs unvaccinated and factor in the risk if getting COVID, which even when asymptomatic, definitely causes myocarditis.

    The problem with these public announcements is that people who do not have the background to weigh in these factors will make poor choices based on the risk of the vaccine alone instead of the risks in the larger context.

  3. The NCAA has already warned its member institutions concerning the same effect for young athletes that contract the virus. They have been told to monitor those under their purview for myocarditis.

    interesting how some here went into a tizzy when they suspended the J&J virus to verify the risk/reward of that virus when it came to blood clots.

      Good for the NCAA, presumably. Of course, NCAA doesn’t set public health policy.
