Belgium Drops Moderna Covid-19 Vaccine for Young People Due to Heart Inflammation Risk

Belgium has stopped the rollout of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to Belgians 30-years-old and younger due to the risk of heart inflammation.

According to a Brussels Times report, the country stopped using Moderna’s jab as a primary shot for those younger than 31-years-old in December 2021. Instead, the country began recommending the Pfizer vaccine for initial vaccination despite also being linked to cardiac inflammation.

Following the advice of the country’s Superior Health Council, Moderna vaccines were reallocated for booster doses. Half the standard dose would be injected to Belgians aged between 18 and 30-years-old. Joris Moonens, a spokesman for the country’s care and health agency, said the Moderna vaccine “will be used for the rest of the booster vaccination campaign unless the scientific insights into its use change.”

Gudrun Briat, a spokeswoman for Belgium’s vaccination task force, said the move was based on research showing a higher risk of cardiac inflammation. She told Brussels Times: “The decision for the basic vaccination of 18- to 30-year-olds is based on international knowledge of possible side effects. We took this decision as a precaution.”

She cited international data on the Moderna vaccine’s side effects as factors for the decision. For example, one study in Denmark revealed a higher risk of myocarditis – inflammation of the heart muscle – in young men post-vaccination with either the first or second Moderna dose compared to the Pfizer vaccine. “If there is an alternative vaccine available, it makes more sense not to take any risks,” Briat said.

Belgium’s decision to stop offering the Moderna vaccine for those under 30 followed several Nordic countries halting the vaccine over concerns regarding heart inflammation.

I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.

People shouldn’t be mislabelling anti-authoritarians as anti-vaxxers.

From the rotten heart of Natostan, seething EUSSR sinkhole aka Brussels, people are learning to speak the language of vertical swine and it certainly seems to work. The vertical hog will get back on all fours or bad pork will get grilled. There is no other answer to this global democide.

Oink oink oink.
