In a potentially alarming development, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday that young American men are showing notable increases in heart inflammation conditions after receiving their final coronavirus vaccine shot. Meanwhile, people in that demographic received only 9% of the two-shot regimens of the Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA) or Pfizer (NYSE: PFE)/BioNTech (NASDAQ: BNTX) vaccines, so the imbalance is clear. Other data show that the median age of vaccinated individuals who developed heart inflammation following their final dose was 24.
