In early June, Israeli researchers discovered a possible link between myocarditis and the Pfizer vaccine.
The Israeli Ministry of Health then warned that the small number of cases of inflammatory heart disease reported in the country, mainly in young men vaccinated with the coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech, was probably related to vaccination.
Now scientists from Israel are making new discoveries. In a large study of 2.5 million vaccinated people, they found that myocarditis (an inflammatory disease of the myocardium-heart muscle) affected only 0.002 percent of them and was severe in only two percent of cases (one patient succumbed to the disease).
As the journal Nature pointed out, up to two Israeli studies highlighted the low risk of myocarditis after the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine. According to them, the chances of developing this disease are 1:50 000.
