Covid: Vaccine vs infection myocarditis risk


My Swedish friend, Dr Sebastian Rushworth, is an emergency medicine physician and author on the science behind COVID. Here is what he concludes about this matter of vaccine versus infection risk of myocarditis:

"Considering that decreasing age also means decreasing risk of a bad outcome from covid (including decreasing risk of myocarditis after covid), it is reasonable to think that there is an inflection point at which the harms of vaccination outweigh the benefits. On top of that, there is evidence that increasing the number of doses increases the risk of myocarditis. With those two factors in mind, it's my measured opinion that giving boosters to healthy young people, and especially to children, is nuts. On top of that, many, if not most, young adults and children have already had covid, and therefore have as good immunity as it's possible to get, so boosting literally exposes them to risk of harm without any possibility of benefit. When the benefits of vaccination are zero, any non-zero risk is unacceptable."

Thanks for posting this, Gary. I was having some trouble finding this kind of information. The study is not peer reviewed yet, so some details may change but it seems clear that it was a good decision to go for the Pfizer vaccine, here, rather than the Moderna one. It would be interesting to know why the Moderna vaccine has a significantly increased risk of myocarditis, compared to the Pfizer one.

Fortunately for me, there seems to be no increased risk from the Pfizer vaccine, for those over 40, compared to the background risk. The increased risk from catching the virus is much greater. Since everyone is likely to catch the virus at some stage, this makes it sensible t…
