Small number of heart inflammation cases seen after vaccination, but not yet linked

Dr. Ihab B. Alomari, a cardiologist with UCI Health in California, said the cases of myocarditis reported to the CDC are not necessarily caused by the vaccine. … “So far, all the myocarditis cases that were reported were actually mild,” Alomari said. “But COVID itself is more dangerous than getting the vaccine. So the benefits of vaccination at this point definitely outweigh the risk.”
