Greater Risk for Heart Complications from COVID-19 Illness Not Vaccine

You men are more at risk of developing myocarditis from a COVID-19 infection than from a COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Did you know?

The CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration studied the risk for myocarditis, which is inflammation along the lining of the heart, in all age groups following COVID-19 vaccinations. They concluded the risk for developing myocarditis is rare, and the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the risks.
