As reported by Reuters, the US drug regulatory agency is expanding the warnings for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The regulatory authority included a clause in the instructions on the possibility of myocarditis and pericarditis after vaccination with these vaccines.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added a rare inflammatory heart disease warning to instructions for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. This was reported by the news agency on Saturday Reuters.
According to the report, the regulator added a warning of the occurrence of myocarditis and pericarditis after vaccination with drugs from these companies. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that patients with vaccine-induced heart inflammation generally recover and do well.
For 300 million doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines used in the United States, approximately 1,200 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis were reported. About 300 people under the age of 30 were hospitalized, but almost all of them were discharged immediately after the examination.
Moderna and Pfizer are two of the three approved vaccines in the US. The country has also approved a single-component product from the US company Johnson & Johnson for use.
The United States ranks first in the number of cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection with more than 33 million people and in the number of COVID-19 deaths with more than 600,000 people worldwide.
