In the wake of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout among U.S. troops, cases of myocarditis, a condition characterized by inflammation of the heart muscle, have seen a significant increase, sparking concerns among health officials and the public. Gilbert Cisneros Jr., the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, recently disclosed a staggering 151% rise in annual average myocarditis cases in 2021, following the vaccine administration.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported cases of myocarditis have been particularly prevalent among adolescents and young adult males shortly after receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, such as Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.
The CDC's website has acknowledged the occurrence of myocarditis post-vaccination. Whistleblowers informed the Daily Caller that the Department of Defense (DoD) has disregarded numerous reports of adverse health effects linked to the COVID-19 vaccines, including myocarditis.
The Defense Health Agency (DHA) maintains a dedicated database for individuals to self-report adverse vaccine effects, but the whistleblowers have alleged that many cases of vaccine related myocarditis were never added to the database, leaving them unaccounted for in official records.
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a crucial tool used for recording vaccine related adverse effects. Nevertheless, it appears that some post vaccination health events in the military were not documented in VAERS or treated as vaccine related injuries. This discrepancy has raised concerns about the accuracy and completeness of data related to vaccine side effects within the armed forces.
It has been revealed that the military initially planned to establish a separate dataset for service members to monitor adverse vaccine effects, but this plan was not implemented. Instead, they relied solely on VAERS for reporting such incidents, which has now come under scrutiny due to potential inaccuracies and omissions.
The implications of these revelations have left many questioning the extent of transparency and accountability surrounding vaccine safety within the military.
One Marine Corps aviation safety officer has reported witnessing a concerning increase in medical reports after the COVID-19 vaccine introduction, but these incidents were neither recorded in VAERS nor treated as vaccine related injuries, further fueling the ongoing debate on vaccine safety protocols.
