Increase in cases of myocarditis in young people vaccinated after the second dose, this evening (Tuesday) was reported in the evening news here 11. Preliminary data collected from hospitals indicate that there is an “excess morbidity” of inflammation among young people aged 30-16, in previous years.
From about 70% of the data collected, it seems that the morbidity rate is 1 in 3,000 to 6,000 cases, depending on the age group. A senior health ministry official told News Today that in light of preliminary data “we will have to take this into account in our recommendation to vaccinate children”. The senior added that it would probably drop from the size of the recommendation.
The options on the agenda are a “soft” recommendation – a recommendation to get vaccinated alongside the data found, without a campaign. Or just approving the vaccine and leaving the decision in the hands of the parents in front of their personal pediatricians. One of the options discussed at the Ministry of Health in the last two days is to give one vaccine to children because most cases of infection appeared after the second vaccine was given. Next week the final decision will be made, after a meeting
