vaccine side effects

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring cases of heart inflammation in teens who have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine.

It’s a rare disorder called Myocarditis and it’s been reported among some young people after receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

So far, advisers to the CDC say they haven’t seen more cases of Myocarditis in vaccinated teens versus unvaccinated teens. Still, the independent advisory committee continues to monitor the situation.
