TALLAHASSEE, Fla., October 9, 2022—On October 7, Florida State Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo announced new guidance regarding mRNA vaccines following an analysis through a self-controlled case series, conducted by the Florida Department of Health (Department), that showed an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years oldwithin 28 days following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.
The technique used evaluates vaccine safety.
The State Surgeon General recommends against males aged 18 to 39 from receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. Those with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when making this decision. According to the new guidance, because there is a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, “the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group.”
“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health,” said Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. “Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians.”
Dr. Ladapo also holds an MD from Harvard Medical School and a PhD in Health Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He was recently granted a professorship at the University of Florida (UF) College of Medicine. Prior to joining UF, he served as an associate professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) caring for hospitalized patients.
The guidance also states that individuals and health care providers should also be aware that the Florida Department of Health’s analysis found:
Males over the age of 60 had a 10% increased risk of cardiac-related death within 28 days of mRNA vaccination.
Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks among any population.
The data sources of the study were from Florida’s reportable disease repository (Merlin), Florida State Health Online Tracking System (FLSHOTS), and death records data from vital statistics were linked. For the primary analysis, Florida residents aged 18 years or older who died within 25-weeks of COVID-19 vaccination since the start of the vaccination roll-out (December 15, 2020) were included. To allow for death registration, the study end date was June 1, 2022.
Two outcomes were assessed — Natural all-cause deaths (i.e., excluding homicides, suicides, and accidents) and cardiac-related deaths. Cardiac-related deaths were included if their death record contained an ICD-10 code of I30-I52.
During the Pfizer trials, more people died in the vaccine group than in the placebo group, and it takes 22,000 vaccines to save one life from COVID.
