One has to ask why so many in authority want the young to receive the Wuhan flu vaccine when they are capable of fighting the disease via their own antibodies? Nevertheless, at least ‘Sweden and Denmark have temporarily hit pause on the rollout of Moderna jabs for younger people, amid reports of possible rare cardiovascular side effects.
On Wednesday, Sweden’s health agency announced the nation would halt the jabs for those aged 30 and under following an increase in myocarditis and pericarditis – conditions which cause an inflammation of the heart or the heart’s lining – among young people vaccinated with Moderna.
Meanwhile, Denmark has paused the vaccines for those aged under 18.
The decision was based on a study which found a potentially small increase in those cardiovascular conditions post-vaccination with Moderna among younger people.
However, the Swedish Public Health agency stressed the likelihood of experiencing complications was extremely rare, with the decision made out of an abundance of caution.
“The increase in risk is seen within four weeks after the vaccination, mainly within the first two weeks,” the agency said.
“The risk of being affected is very small.”
Sweden’s top epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said in a statement the agency would “follow the situation closely and act quickly to ensure that vaccinations against Covid-19 are always as safe as possible and at the same time provide effective protection”.
Both nations will now offer the Pfizer vaccine to younger people instead of Moderna, with Sweden’s Moderna pause in place until December 1.
Norway already recommends Pfizer for those under 18, with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health’s head of infection control, Geir Bukholm, saying in a statement the risks were higher for younger men.’https://www.news.com.au/world/coronavirus/health/sweden-denmark-halt-moderna-jabs-for-young-people-over-reports-of-possible-rare-side-effects/news-story/03cba2284b413a0d6264a501e72cfd61
