In case one needs another reason to not give COVID jabs to children, an American study by Tracy Beth Høeg et al titled “SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccination-Associated Myocarditis in Children Ages 12–17: A Stratified National Database Analysis” was published on 30 August 2021.
As the title indicates, the researchers used the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) to review cases of cardiac adverse event (CAE) due to COVID vaccinations amongst the abovementioned age group. In their sample, all but one used Pfizer.
One can read the paper for all the math which is not difficult as it is basically comparing the odds.
Generally, most impacted are boys (>90%) and most after the second dose (>80%). According to the criteria the researchers adopted, the CAE rates for girls are comparable to the “low” COVID hospitalization rates. The researchers split the latter into three categories (“low”, “moderate” and “high”) since the rates vary.
Figure 7 from the paper is reproduced below. As one can see, assuming the “moderate” COVID hospitalization rate, boys age 12–15 years without comorbidities are approximately 3.7 times more likely to be hospitalized for CAE than COVID and boys age 16–17 years without comorbidities are 2.1 times more likely to be hospitalized for CAE than COVID.
