A new analysis of data from the UK shows that the Moderna vaccine (mRNA-1273) gives a much higher risk of myocarditis than that from a COVID infection. The second and third doses of the Pfizer vaccine (BNT162b2) are also giving a higher risk compared to COVID infection.
The data on the risk of COVID infection comes from earlier variants. The new Omicron appears to give milder symptoms, so it is likely that the risks associated with Omicron are significantly lower than reported.
Meanwhile, the number of soccer players dropping dead from heart attacks continues at record levels. It must just be a coincidence.
