There has been a slew of concerns concerning the potential side effects of covid vaccination, including cardiac inflammation in children and adolescents. Please see below for the most recent findings involving Moderna vaccines.
It appears that the relatively unusual side effects of the Moderna coronavirus vaccination in people under the age of 31 is what caused Belgium to discontinue the use of this vaccine for the first two vaccine doses in people in this age bracket last month, according to reports.
Brussels Times, an online journal, reports that younger people can still receive the vaccine for their booster shot (a half dosage rather than a full dose), but that Pfizer’s vaccine is now recommended for all people under the age of 31 for the first two doses. This is in accordance with the recommendations of the Superior Health Council.
In making the decision to administer a basic immunization to 18- to 30-year-olds, the World Health Organization considered the possibility of side effects, which are quite rare. “We made this decision as a precautionary measure.”
Vaccination Task Force spokesperson Gudrun Briat stated this in an interview with The Brussels Times.
According to preliminary findings from Danish research, vaccination with Moderna resulted in an increased risk of inflammation of the heart muscle in young men following the first or second dose when compared to vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine following the first or second dose after the first or second dose.
“In most cases, the inflammation is innocuous and goes away without causing any noticeable symptoms, but if there is an alternate vaccination available, it makes more sense not to take any chances,” Briat explained.
