A groundbreaking study by researchers from Oxford, Leeds, Harvard, and Bristol has confirmed that myocarditis and pericarditis only appear in children and adolescents following COVID-19 vaccination, not after infection. This extensive research analyzed official government data from over 1 million English children and adolescents, comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated subjects aged 5-11 and 12-15.

Key findings include:

  • All cases of myocarditis and pericarditis during the study period occurred in vaccinated individuals.
  • Most myocarditis and pericarditis cases were recorded after the first dose of the vaccine.
  • Hospitalizations related to COVID-19 were extremely rare among children and adolescents.
  • Over 50% of children who had myocarditis following the shot required hospitalization.
