The government has published this document on post-vaccine myocarditis.

Read between the lines folks, and note the things they gloss over......

They major on this being apparently "rare", but fail to mention that complications from Covid in younger age groups are also incredibly rare.

At least they don't repeat the ludicrous claim that myocarditis is more frequent after infection.

Choice of word "majority" is interesting. Remember these documents are written by committees. They are political, it's all about how far can they go to appease political masters without actually lying.

"Majority" is very different from "small proportion".

I doubt they wanted to admit the fibrosis point but the evidence from the US was quite clear on this.

Ditto - no follow-up is available.

Hence they have to admit we have no idea what happens to these poor young people.

In terms of incidence, this is MUCH lower (certainly for dose 2) than previously estimated from US and Israeli data, as confirmed in documents submitted to the FDA:

In terms of the dose 2 point...has anyone remembered that JCVI could not recommend these injections AT ALL for healthy 12-15 year olds?

But now apparently the JCVI is discussing dosing intervals between doses 1 and 2.

Where's the reasoning and recommendation for dose 1?

Another bizarre statement which would be of absolutely no comfort to parents of a child suffering this.

Some more detail here on the misrepresentation of incidence rates, thanks to @ClareCraigPath

I saw this on a Telegram site so thought I'd verify and dig into the data a little.

The Australian TGA AE site is actually quite good , although not much case level info is available; however this is a lot more than the UK'sK Yellow Card system has - which is zero.

You can search at:

I actually extracted the case reports for myocarditis and pericarditis following the Pfizer injection for 1 to 10 November (no data is available past the 10th) and have saved them to a PDF if anyone is interested.

This is the conclusion from a paper published in one of the major journals of cardiovascular medicine.

The study is of 566 patients aged 28 to 97 undergoing testing within a preventative screening program.

The dramatic changes “became apparent in most patients.”

So we now appear to have:

- increased reporting of a range of cardiac events in all major adverse events reporting systems

- worrying trends in younger non-Covid mortality

The conundrum of Romania, which just a few weeks ago was being held out as a disaster because of its low vaccination rate which is still very low in comparison to most other nations:
Romania did indeed have a sharp increase in cases, and viewed from a month or so ago it must have looked worrying.
But as ever, it appears that "virus is gonna virus" according to seasonal waves upon which interventions, including vaccines, have little effect.

In the same countries now - cases rising in all except Romania, where they are plummeting:

This will be remembered for the soloist violinist losing a string mid-concert - but the ludicrous dystopia of nearly an entire orchestra donning useless and possibly harmful masks is more notable.

They obviously didn't find this page:…

Good to see concerns raised by several people getting an airing in the MSM.

It is instructive to look at EUROMOMO data - which comprises aggregated mortality data for the 28 participating countries:…

All-ages cumulative mortality is now not too disimilar to last year.

That in itself would make this a rather unusual pandemic in that it would be expected to have a mortality deficit in the year following the main wave.

Indeed, in the group which accounts for a very high proportion of Covid deaths - over 85 years - total mortality this year is now in line with other recent years before 2020.

Devastating critique of the desperation becoming evident in UKHSA as they try to explain away data which suggests the opposite of what they’d like it to show.

I also recommend this:

People seem to forget that infections, defined as symptoms + a positive PCR, is the only endpoint shown in a controlled clinical trial to be reduced by the vaccines.

(That’s not to say the trials look well-conducted, or necessarily of clinical relevance to most healthy people.)
So it’s a bit rich to start deflecting from the implications of an apparently increasingly worsening position in respect of the very same clinical endpoint used to justify the entire vaccination rollout.
