A 17-year-old student experienced symptoms of a heart condition about a week after his first dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine and was later diagnosed with heart disease, his father said Tuesday .Fox and Friends.”
The teen already has COVID and is cured, but needs to get the vaccine to play soccer.
The teenager’s father, Fabio Berlingieri, said his son was vaccinated on June 15, and about a week later began complaining that “his heart hurts every time he has a heartbeat.”
At first, Berlingieri thought his son was pulling a muscle playing sports. But when symptoms persisted, he was taken to a walk-in clinic. Doctors gave the teen an EKG, and found nothing wrong, but recommended that he see a cardiologist the next day. The cardiologist made a sonogram, which also did nothing, after running the blood.
Berlingieri said they were told two or three days before they could get results from the blood. If they do, it’s “bad news.”
“They called and said‘ your child needs to go to the emergency room now, ’” Berlingieri said. “I said today is her prom, can she come later? They said, ‘no, he has to go now.’ ”
His son’s troponin the level was “not on the charts,” Berlingieri explained, adding that her son had been hospitalized for several days.
Berlinigieri’s son missed his prom and now can’t do “all the things he wants to do,” including playing soccer in the fall and surfing. A later check-in by the cardiologist showed that his “EKG was low.”
“What’s happening, I think, is not getting oxygen in places,” Berlingieri said. “That’s why it has to heal. That’s why he has to be really careful that he doesn’t do anything too hard so that his heart rate doesn’t go up and [put him in] risk of heart attack. “
Contributed medically to Fox News Nicole Saphier, who appeared in the interview with Berlingieri, said the way the New York Times and the CDC present data on the adverse effects of vaccines on young people is “irresponsible.”
“They choose the way they present the data. It’s an all or nothing approach. They say teenagers are completely vaccinated or each of them gets COVID-19. That’s the way they balance now, ”Saphier said.
Saphier said a lot of emphasis should be given to potential adverse effects, such as myocarditis and so on inflammation of the heart issues, when deciding who should be vaccinated. He also urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to see near vaccines before recommending a universal policy.
Speaking to the teenager who once had COVID and was cured, Saphier said:
“Unfortunately, they still continue to deny natural resistance with a strong protection, and the truth is that. We only have a lot of data showing natural resistance with a strong protection. effect like we did vaccines, but they kept stopping and it went unnoticed.
“Fabio, for himself and his family may have positive antibodies. He may not need the vaccine right now. And here he still can’t play soccer because he got the vaccine for soccer. None accountable. It doesn’t make sense. And the FDA needs to look a little closer at vaccines before they go ahead with universal recommendations. “
Myocarditis is a rare autoimmune -inducing disease, where the immune system attacks the heart muscle and damages it. When the heart muscle is attacked by the immune system, the damaged cells release a protein called troponin into the bloodstream, according to Hooman Noorchasm, a cardiothoracic surgeon and immunologist.
“Doctors can detect evidence of heart damage, even if there are some clinical signs of heart trouble, by measuring troponin levels in the blood,” Noorchasm said. “Typically, this protein goes unnoticed in healthy people who have not had a heart attack or have not experienced myocarditis.”
Pfizer’s The COVID vaccine is now approved for use in individuals 12 and older. Younger children, between the ages of 5 and 11, 5 to 11 are eligible ElIgIblE to receive a COVID vaccine in September or October, according to a top executive at Pfizer.
As in The Defender reports, on June 25 the FDA added a warning to fact sheets – as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices – for Pfizer and Modern COVID vaccines indicate an increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis after vaccination.
Agreed to latest data of CDCine’s Vaccine Reporting System Bad Occurrences (VAERS), there is a general 1,576 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis between December 14 and June 28. In 1,576 cases, 1,001 cases dedicated to Pfizer, 523 cases in Moderna and 48 cases on the COVID vaccine by J&J.
