Report: CDC Covered Up COVID Vaccine Myocarditis Risk, Show Emails And Reports

At Michael Shellenberger's Substack "Public," though it's actually written by Alex Gutentag.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is encouraging everyone six months and older to get the newest COVID-19 booster. The benefits for children and young people far outweigh the risks, argues CDC Director Mandy Cohen. "Teen boys have been up to five times as likely to have heart inflammation after having a COVID infection than after getting vaccinated," Cohen said.

But the best available evidence does not back up Cohen's claims. The CDC director is relying on a highly flawed study published in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly (MMWR).

It's true that this study found teen boys ages 12-17 had two to six times greater risk of heart complications after COVID infection compared to after vaccination.

But the study only looked at electronic health records, which were limited to teenagers who had been admitted to the hospital or who visited a doctor. This means the subjects of the study were not representative of the total number of teen boys who got COVID, the vast majority of whom never went to the doctor.

And other papers show vastly different results.

A study from the American Heart Association on myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) found that, "In men younger than 40 years old, the number of excess myocarditis events per million people was higher after a second dose of mRNA-1273 than after a positive SARS-CoV-2 test."

A Nordic study of 23 million people found that for young men ages 16 to 24, post-vaccination myocarditis rates were six to 28 times higher than myocarditis rates after COVID infection. The study also found that there were zero myocarditis cases after COVID infection in males ages 12-15.

The consequences of vaccine-caused myocarditis can be serious. A review of clinical records found that ninety-six percent of people under 30 diagnosed with post-vaccination myocarditis were hospitalized. For some patients, symptoms persist. In one study from the US military, seven out of 23 myocarditis patients "continued to have chest discomfort" weeks after vaccination.

Although Cohen insists that children are at high risk of serious illness, the mean Infection Fatality Rate of COVID for people under 20 years old is 0.0003%, and hospitals have grossly inflated the reported number of children with severe COVID. One paper found that hospital records overcounted the number of pediatric COVID hospitalizations by at least 40 percent.

The CDC's recommendation that everyone aged 6 months and older get another booster is simply not scientifically or medically sound. The agency received but did not respond to Public's requests for comment about its misrepresentation of myocarditis risks.

What's more, a mounting body of evidence shows that the CDC and the White House chose to ignore and cover up evidence of a significant myocarditis safety signal in early 2021, putting young people at risk of serious adverse events. How did this happen?

On April 27, 2021, then-director of the CDC, Rochelle Walensky stated, "we have not seen any reports" of post-vaccination myocarditis, but this was a false statement at the time. Journalist Zachary Stieber of the Epoch Times obtained internal CDC emails through a Freedom of Information Act request.

When Walensky claimed to have "not seen any reports," there were dozens of reports in the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Although we can't know for sure if Walensky had seen reports of post-vaccine myocarditis, a US government memorandum from March 2021, also obtained by Stieber, stated that there were 27 cases of myocarditis, myopericarditis, and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining around the heart) on VAERS. The US government conducted its VAERS search on February 23, 2021.

It is not clear who wrote the memo, and CDC refused to answer any questions on the matter.

But>b? Walensky "was copied on multiple threads discussing myocarditis," Stieber writes. "She responded to one of the threads, saying the information was 'super helpful.'">b?

"The CDC," notes Stieber, "was warned by Israel on Feb. 28, 2021, about a 'large number' of myocarditis cases after Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination, documents obtained by The Epoch Times show. Internally, the warning was designated as 'high' importance and set off a review of U.S. data."
