Part 1: “Don’t Minimize Myocarditis From The Vaccine”, By the Author of “Don’t Fear Literal Death From COVID”.

Doctors used *that result* to claim the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus.
Medical Conservatives: A High Rate of COVID-Myocarditis is “Good News”, A Low Rate of Vaccine-Myocarditis is “Deeply Concerning”
Doctors who repeatedly and blatantly contradict themselves, convincing parents that rare vaccine side effects are a fate worse than death, don't deserve our trust.
Judah Kreinbrook, a first year medical student, responds to a post on Sensible Medicine by a medical student that exaggerated the risk of myocarditis from COVID-19 vaccines while expressing anger at how trust in medicine has been undermined. Having been raised by a family steeped in antivaccine views, Kreinbrook invokes his journey to SBM to gently correct his fellow medical student and...

The autopsy report for two teens who allegedly died of vaccine myocarditis was released this week. What are the implications for vaccinating children and adolescents?
COVID mRNA vaccines only result in rare, mild, and transitory myocarditis, but this doesn't stop misinformation from spreading.
The harms we cause often lead to more grief than the harms we fail to prevent. Is this why some doctors are willing to leave young people vulnerable to a deadly virus?
