An Intriguing Hypothesis About Myocarditis from COVID Vaccination:
A study in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases (Aug. 18, 2021) offers an idea about why some people could be developing myocarditis from COVID vaccination. Researchers administered the COVID vaccine to mice either into a muscle (intramuscular) or into a vein (intravenous).
Here is the background reason for conducting this study:
“Post-vaccination myopericarditis is reported after immunization with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. The effect of accidental intravenous injection of this vaccine on the heart is unknown.”
And here are the results of the study:
Brief withdrawal of syringe plunger to exclude blood aspiration may be one possible way to reduce such risk.” This has ALWAYS been the normal medical practice.
My very “ugly question: Is Pfizer interested in more myocarditis cases?[They produce various “heart-drugs”…..] It CAN’T be that they did not examine this issue!
What This Might Mean for You:
There was a time when doctors and nurses were the only health professionals who gave shots. They were carefully taught to pull the plunger back on the syringe before injecting a vaccine or drug. That was to verify that they were not in a vein. If “aspiration” revealed blood in the syringe, they were in a vein and had to reposition the needle.
This practice has mostly disappeared. These days pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, students in the health professions and physicians assistants are giving shots. It is not clear how well some of these folks have been trained in proper vaccine shot technique. The aspiration procedure has mostly gone the way of the buggy whip.
Until the questions raised by the mouse study are resolved, we think it makes sense for the health professional administering the shot to pull back on the plunger and check for blood before injecting the vaccine. Apparently, Denmark and Hong Kong have adopted this strategy just to be on the safe side. It remains to be seen whether the CDC will recommend this approach in the US.
