Die Study should first clarify whether the number of cardiac arrests and emergency calls among 16- to 39-year-old Israelis is related to Covid infection and vaccination rates. One thing soon became clear to the scientists at Boston’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the doctors at the Israeli Jaffa Hospital in Tel Aviv, who were working on it together: After the first and second vaccinations, the number of emergency calls for cardiac arrest increased people between the ages of 16 and 40 increased sharply – by a quarter (25 percent). They were able to determine this using a unique data set from the Israeli National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from 2019 to 2021.
The study compared the cases of emergency calls for cardiac arrest among the target group in 2020, when no vaccine was developed, with the numbers from January to May 2021, when the second dose was already injected in Israel. In both periods, the number of new infections was about the same. However, in 2021, the number of cardiac arrest rescues was 25 percent higher.
Even if the study emphasizes that the causal connection between the vaccination and the emergency calls has not been checked, the results are still worrying and need to be investigated further. “The results raise concern about undetected serious cardiovascular side effects from vaccines and underscore the well-established causal link between vaccines and myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), a common cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young people.” , judge the study authors.
In other words, the researchers do not rule out serious side effects in young people, including heart muscle inflammation and sudden cardiac arrest.
