1 in 35 people showed signs of heart damage after taking the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, according to a new study from the European Journal of Heart Failure.
According to the study, the mRNA-1273 vaccine-associated myocardial injury was more common than previously thought.
Millions are Americans have taken the Moderna covid vaccine, and there have been unprecedented reports on heart damage .
The Epoch Times reported:
One in 35 healthcare workers at a Swiss hospital had signs of heart injury associated with the vaccine, mRNA-1273, researchers found.
“mRNA-1273 booster vaccination-associated elevation of markers of myocardial injury occurred in about one out of 35 persons (2.8%), a greater incidence than estimated in meta-analyses of hospitalized cases with myocarditis (estimated incidence 0.0035%) after the second vaccination,” the researchers wrote in the paper, published by the European Journal of Heart Failure.
In a generally healthy population, the level would be about 1 percent, the researchers said.
The group experiencing the adverse effects was followed for only 30 days, and half still had unusually high levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T, an indicator of subclinical heart damage, at follow-up.
The long-term implications of the study remain unclear as little research has tracked people over time with heart injury after messenger RNA vaccination, which is known to cause myocarditis and other forms of heart damage.
