COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis has become an expected new disease category for young cardiac patients presenting to emergency departments. In a series of tragic events, two boys succumbed to death from unusual heart inflammation shortly after getting the Pfizer vaccine.
Medical examiners discovered that cardiac inflammation was the principal cause of death in two teenage males who perished promptly after receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccination, reports The Epoch Times.
Both boys were discovered deceased in their beds, one three days after taking the second dosage of Pfizer’s vaccination and the other four days later. Both have been declared dead after no efforts at resuscitation were made.
Neither boy was given a name, and the dates of their deaths also weren’t disclosed. The one who died first was designated Boy A, and the other was designated Boy B.
After immunisation, Boy A reported of a headache and gastrointestinal issues, but said his conditions were improving before he perished. He hadn’t had any previous medical issues. Boy B didn’t have any signs and had no previous health problems. Neither of them had any visible signs of heart disease. Neither had previously had COVID-19, and neither had the condition when diagnosed postmortem. Medication and abuse-related drugs were also found to be negative in forensic toxicological testing.

The death of muscle cells, known as myocytes, is a characteristic of conventional myocarditis. Medical investigators discovered aberrant signs in the boys, such as hypereosinophilic myocytes, or heart muscle cells that are filled with white blood cells.
“This injury pattern is instead similar to what is seen in the myocardium of patients who are clinically diagnosed with Takotsubo, toxic, or ‘stress’ cardiomyopathy, which is a temporary myocardial injury that can develop in patients with extreme physical, chemical, or sometimes emotional stressors,” in a research (read below) presented recently in Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, the medical examiners wrote.
The cardiac abnormalities in the boys were thought to be caused by adrenaline influencing heart cells called cardiomyocytes, resulting in “an overly exuberant immune response” and cardiac inflammation, comparable to the emergence of difficulties seen in some COVID-19 or multisystem inflammatory syndrome patients.
While the medical examiners aren’t sure what happened, they say all indicators suggest to myocardial injury as the “primary factor” in the fatalities, and they urge doctors to be mindful that post-vaccine heart issues aren’t the same as ordinary myocarditis.
The findings “sadly confirm fatal COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis,” according to Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist in Texas who has not been engaged in the research.
“The histopathology demonstrates a unique form of myocarditis that may be specific to the mRNA vaccines suggesting the Spike protein damages pericytes that surround capillaries and cardiomyocytes,” McCullough said in an email.
“With >200 papers on the topic in the preprint and published literature, and now formal evaluation and management guidelines issued in the United Kingdom, COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis has become an expected new disease category for young cardiac patients presenting to emergency departments and medical offices, if they are fortunate enough to have a nonfatal presentation,” he added.
The study’s leader, Dr. James Gill, the chief medical examiner of Connecticut, did not reply to calls for comment. Pfizer did not respond to a request for feedback.
According to US health regulators, myocarditis has developed in a higher-than-expected proportion of young boys as well as some young females after receiving the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations. The issue is most noticeable after the second dosage of either vaccination, which is advised as part of a two-dose main series.
CDC analysts checked Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports filed across mid-January concerning lives lost with myocarditis after a main series of the Pfizer or Moderna shots, and ruled out myocarditis in five of the 13 cases due to insufficient data, including a complete absence of autopsy, according to Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, a member of the CDC’s vaccine safety team, who told the agency’s vaccine advisory panel during a recent meeting.
According to Shumabukuro, the CDC detected “potential infectious causes” in five of the instances, indicating that the fatalities were not caused by post-vaccination myocarditis. The two others were under scrutiny for months.
The reports were intended for those under the age of 30.
On Feb. 17, a VAERS search revealed 57 reports of myocarditis or pericarditis, a similar disease, as a result of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
“We don’t have any confirmed deaths from myocarditis suffered post-vaccination at this time,” a CDC spokesman informed the media in an email.
Inside another recent study, researchers evaluated MRIs of 92 adult patients with myocarditis and discovered that those who developed the illness after immunization as well as those who developed it after COVID-19 infection had comparable damage characteristics.
