The risk of developing myocarditis (an inflammation of the heart muscle) is estimated to be a factor of 5 to 25 in men vaccinated with Pfizer / Biontec serum. This finding was made in Israel where cases were reported in April in men aged between 16 and 19 years, reports the “Tages-Anzeiger”. This news should be taken with a grain of salt as this condition can also be caused by infectious diseases. It seems that everyone affected is cured. But long-term consequences could arise.
In the United States, too, 14 similar cases have been reported. In Europe, 107 cases have been identified, which corresponds to 1 case for 175,000 vaccinations. In Switzerland, only two cases of myocarditis have been recorded after vaccination against Covid-19.
