Heart Inflammation and Vaccines At A Glance:

  • Family of 4, including two children ages 4 and 5 years old, accidently get COVID vaccines instead of flu shots.
  • Several countries halt mRNA due to heart inflammation.
  • Myocarditis and pericarditis cases continue to surge.

An Evansville, Indiana family is facing uncharted territory as they navigate the effects of adult doses of COVID vaccines accidently given to their 4- and 5-year-old children instead of the seasonal flu shot. The incident happened last Monday, October 4, at a Walgreens. The parents took their children to a pediatric cardiologist for assessment after they were notified of the mistake by Walgreens. They’ve been told both children are showing signs of heart issues. The younger child also has a fever and a cough.1

Images of the vaccine cards for each family member have been provided online by the family’s attorney. No COVID vaccines have been approved for children under the age of 12 years.

Several Nordic Countries Halt Moderna Over Heart Concerns

This past week, several countries have called for a halt on Moderna vaccines after an increase in heart inflammation and symptoms, also known as myocarditis and pericarditis.

Sweden and Denmark announced their departure from the Moderna vaccine for their younger populations on Wednesday. Sweden won’t use Moderna in those under 30, while Denmark made age 18 its cut-off.  The countries pointed to a study by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) that indicates the increased risk; the final data is yet to be released. Both use the mRNA technology, however, the Moderna vaccine contains a 100-microgram dose as opposed to the 30-microgram dose used in the Pfizer shot. The EMA had approved the Pfizer vaccine in May for those over age 12 and the Moderna shot in July for the same age group.

The EMA’s safety committee concluded in July that inflammatory heart conditions can occur in very rare cases following vaccination with Comirnaty {Pfizer} or Spikevax {Moderna} more often in younger men after the second dose.2

Norway is also urging those under 30 to receive the Pfizer vaccine. On Thursday, Finland joined its neighboring countries in restricting who is able to receive the Moderna vaccine.3

On Friday, Iceland stated it will stop all Moderna vaccines, regardless of age, citing the increased heart inflammation risk.4

Not a New Concern

The link to heart inflammation, myocarditis, and pericarditis isn’t new this week. In June, the FDA added a warning to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines regarding the increased risk of heart inflammation. Several months ago, JAMA published a journal indicating an increase in cases of myocarditis among U.S. military men following COVID vaccinations. Numerous cases of young athletes and college students suffering heart issues headlined over the summer.

Two Evils: Moderna vs. Pfizer

According to VAERS, the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting Site, there have been 8,689 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis reported as of October 1, 2021. Not included in that count are the 7,868 heart attacks also reported.

Approval Status

In August, the FDA granted full approval for those over age 18 for the Pfizer vaccine. Moderna is still under EUA for ages 18 and over. Pfizer has been granted EUA (emergency use authorization) for those ages 12-17. Last week, Pfizer filed for EUA for ages 5-11 after their bridging study showed similar blood serum numbers as the older cohorts even though there wasn’t sufficient evidence to show a reduction in actual COVID cases.

Many doctors and experts have shared their concerns regarding the vaccines and the increased risk of adverse events. Some have petitioned the FDA to slow their approvals.

Hold the Phone — Doc’s Thoughts:

I can’t even imagine what those parents are feeling right now. An error that injected 4- and 5-year-old children with the same dose as a grown adult for vaccines not even approved for children?! That has proven over and over again to be unsafe?! Now those children are having heart issues!

Recently, one of the Wellness Way affiliate doctors used an immune panel to show the effects of the COVID vaccines. Immune markers indicated tissue damage and an adaptive immune response that was crashing. It is important to note that while several doctors say the cases of myocarditis and pericarditis will heal over time, that heart tissue isn’t being replaced with healthy heart tissue. The body is laying down scar tissue. That is not considered healing.

We see it weekly in our offices across the world. Children and adults with vaccine injuries. And that’s at the dose that’s considered appropriate for the specific age. For adults and adolescents over the age of 12, the Pfizer dose is 30 micrograms. The dose submitted for EUA approval for 5–11-year-olds is a third of that at 10 micrograms. As a doctor, I also have concerns that a 12-year-old girl is getting the same dose as an adult man, but that is another issue altogether. The issue at hand is that these vaccines have been proven over and over again to be dangerous around the world. And now, two innocent children, and two heart-broken parents, are suffering with the consequences of a society that is so focused on these COVID vaccines.

The fact-checkers and other agencies will try to spin this as a “rare” accident. Maybe it is rare that this type of mistake has happened. However, with all of the damage these vaccines are doing, we can’t call these injuries rare anymore. Entire countries are pausing their use of some of these vaccines. Hopefully they’ll wake up and realize they can’t just limit it to Moderna. Did you see those charts and reports from VAERS? We can’t limit the halt to just the Moderna shot. All of these shots need to be called into account.

If you are concerned about any immune responses due to injuries or are wondering how to keep your immune system healthy, reach out to a Wellness Way clinic. We’re here to help you restore your health. That will look different for each person. We don’t believe in one-size-fits all approach like the one used with these vaccines.
