My My My, Myocarditis rates are high
For the vaccinated. Even for women

In a sign of how things are changing, a few days ago, in my ‘Must-Reads’, I linked to an Express article reporting on a Scandinavian study looking at heart problems caused by vaccines. For the MSM to be reporting on vaccine side-effects, on the same day of the release of the study, is a positive step forwards. Alex Berenson then had a brief look at the report himself but I wanted to take a closer look at the supplemental content.
To put it simply, myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle and pericarditis is inflammation of the lining around the heart.
A quick look at what this study actually looked for. It comprised of four cohort studies from health registers in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The study involved 21,233,522 residents, aged 12 years or older between December 2020 and October 2021. The authors were looking at vaccination data and hospital diagnoses of myocarditis and pericarditis, specifically within “the 28-day risk periods after administration date of the first and second doses of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine”.
So, immediately we can see that this study won’t tell us if heart problems occurred after 28 days and after boosters (because it finished in October 2021) but it’s a great start.
The headline results were that 1,077 incidents of myocarditis and 1149 incidents of pericarditis events were identified, with a higher risk after the second dose. In males between 16 and 24 adjusted incidence rate ratios (IRR) (compared with the unvaccinated) were 5.31 for a second dose of Pfizer (and 55 excess events per 1 million vaccines) and 13.83 for a second dose of Moderna (and 183 excess events per 1 million vaccines).
Pericarditis within 28 days
12+ males were almost 3 times as likely to get pericarditis, following a second dose of Moderna, when compared with an unvaccinated child. The difference between whether the first shot was Pfizer of Moderna was minimal.
This rose to an almost 15 times higher chance of pericarditis following two doses of Moderna for 16-24 year old males. This age group had the highest IRR but even for 40+ males, the chance of pericarditis was almost 2.5 times higher with two doses of Moderna.
The focus has always been on heart problems for young men following vaccination but the IRRs for women are actually worse.
For 12+ females there was a 6 times higher chance of pericarditis with a first shot of Pfizer, followed by a second of Moderna. Females in the 16-24 year old category were 28 times more likely to have pericarditis following two shots of Moderna.
However, even though incident rates were higher for women, excess incidents per 100,000 vaccines were lower than for men.
Myocarditis within 28 days
For some reason the same, like-for-like data was not available for myocarditis within 28 days. However, they authors did list modelled excess events per 100,000 jabs, compared with the unvaccinated.
For 12+ males there would be around 10 cases of myocarditis per 100,000 jabs or 16 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis combined. This rose to almost 28 cases for 16-24 males who had a first dose of Pfizer and a second of Moderna, with around 38 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis combined. For women, this was much lower, with the highest case rate being around 9 combined cases for 16-24 year olds.
Combined myocarditis and pericarditis for boys 12-15 years within 28 days
One of the tables within the supplementary materials looked broadly at any first dose vaccine, and any second dose vaccine, compared with the unvaccinated.
For any first dose, teenage boys were almost 5 times more likely to get myocarditis or pericarditis. After any second dose this almost tripled to around 14 times more likely.
This shows the cumulative effect of the vaccines and in other studies I have shown this only gets worse with a third dose.
Myocarditis within 7 days
Things look much worse when only looking at the 7 days following vaccination.
12+ males were over 54 times more likely to be diagnosed with myocarditis following a first shot of Pfizer and a second of Moderna. 16-24 year olds had a 120 times higher chance with the same dosage scheme, 25-39 year olds 67 times higher and 40+ 7 times higher. For the 16-24 year olds this meant 247 cases per million shots
Again, for women, IRRs were much higher with 16-24 year olds being 210 times more likely to get myocarditis but which ‘only’ resulted in 33 cases per million shots.
In general, if someone was hospitalised with myocarditis, a smaller percentage were discharged day 4 or later, the more shots they had.
What does this mean? Were more double jabbed people discharged within 4 days or did they die? Why did they only record discharges from day 4 onwards?
Almost 5% of myocarditis cases after two Moderna shots resulted in death within 28 days, compare with under 1% in the unvaccinated. Over 6% of females with myocarditis died after one shot of Pfizer and around 5% after one shot of Moderna, compared with under 3% in the unvaccinated.
Overall, as has been known for almost a year, there is a clear link between vaccination and myocarditis and pericarditis. This is especially true for younger males when you look at numbers of excess events but is also a clear risk for females when you compare chances of heart problems compared with the unvaccinated.
What is interesting from this study is that it seems, in many cases, the largest risk comes from having a first shot of Pfizer and then a second of Moderna.
Remember when politicians and ‘scientists’ were saying it’s fine to mix jabs, in fact it might even be better for you. I do, very well. I questioned it at the time, saying surely there should be some larger trials looking at whether this is actually safe. But no, in this time of anti-science, the more mRNA and as many different types the better. The trials that were undertaken said it could make them more effective. In reality, there just weren’t enough of the same vaccines around, especially after AstraZeneca was quietly disappeared. This meant that it was pot luck, when you turned up to the vaccination centre, as to what vaccine you received. It didn’t matter which one you had had previously.
And finally, as Alex pointed out, Sweden, Norway and Finland halted the use of Moderna shots in people under 30 last October. This coincides with the results of this study. Why did the US and the UK, as well as many other countries not halt the use for under 30s as well? Well, we all know the answer to that one.
The same thing happened with AstraZeneca. Data came out from Scandinavia that they were causing blood clots but this was denied by the US and the UK for months until they eventually admitted the same observations and halted its use for certain age groups.
And why were boosters encouraged, and still being encouraged, for youngsters who were at very little risk from Covid? Especially without presenting the clear heart problem dangers that they could potentially suffer from.
