Israel Spots Probable Link Between Pfizer Vaccine, Myocarditis

Note: It may be premature to call the link between Pfizer's vaccine and myocarditis "probable".

According to Reuters, Israel's Health Ministry released a statement Tuesday describing how Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE's COVID-19 vaccine could be linked to dozens of heart inflammation cases, mainly observed in younger men. 

So far, the vaccine has been administered to 5 million people in the country and could soon be expanded to teens as young as 12-15 years old. 

The ministry's findings found 275 cases of myocarditis between December 2020 and May 2021, including 148 cases within a month after the first vaccination. Of these, 27 cases after the first dose and 121 after the second. Half of the people had previous medical conditions. 

According to the findings, most patients who experienced heart inflammation spent less than four days in the hospital, and 95% of the cases were classified as mild. 

The study found "there is a probable link between receiving the second dose (of Pfizer) vaccine and the appearance of myocarditis among men aged 16 to 30." 

Pfizer said in a statement that it had reviewed the Israeli observations of myocarditis, noting that no link to its vaccine has been confirmed. 

"A careful assessment of the reports is ongoing and it has not been concluded," Pfizer said. "Adverse events, including myocarditis and pericarditis, are being regularly and thoroughly reviewed by the companies as well as by regulatory authorities."

Meanwhile, Nachman Ash, Israel's pandemic-response coordinator, told local radio station Radio 103 FM, "the health committee gave the green light for vaccinating 12- to 15-year-olds, and this will be possible as of next week." 

An advisory group with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended last month further examination into the possible link between myocarditis and mRNA vaccines. 

The handful of myocarditis cases seem to outweigh the positives as more than 55% of Israel's population has already been vaccinated. 

While the country continues a vaccination spree, what's not being widely spoken about is a new study that suggests natural immunity to the virus could last a lifetime.*

* ZeroHedge's last sentence is wrong. The Nature article that ZeroHedge links to, Had COVID? You’ll probably make antibodies for a lifetime, doesn't say "natural immunity could last a lifetime." It says the ability to produce antibodies to the virus could last a lifetime. The ability to produce antibiodies against the Covid-19 virus should not be confused with natural immunity, or any kind of immunity. 

Here's what the article actually says:

Ellebedy’s team tracked antibody production in 77 people who had recovered from mostly mild cases of COVID-19. As expected, SARS-CoV-2 antibodies plummeted in the four months after infection. But this decline slowed, and up to 11 months after infection, the researchers could still detect antibodies that recognized the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

[...]

What’s not clear is what antibody levels will look like in the long term and whether they offer any protection, Ahmed adds. “We’re early in the game. We’re not looking at five years, ten years after infection.”

Ellebedy’s team has observed early signs that Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine should trigger the production of the same cells. But the persistence of antibody production, whether elicited by vaccination or by infection, does not ensure long-lasting immunity to COVID-19. The ability of some emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants to blunt the protective effects of antibodies means that additional immunizations may be needed to restore levels, says Ellebedy. “My presumption is, we will need a booster.”
