Article of the month: Acute cardiac side effects after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination: a case series

Vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 has been the main tool to contain the pandemic. The rush development of the 3 vaccines and their expedited approval have led to inoculation of millions of patients around the world, leading to a containment of the disease. Despite continuous viral mutations and the identification of weaker variants, the severity of the infections has been mild, with many patients being either asymptomatic or recovering at home. Currently the focus has shifted from the host of organ damage related to the infection to potential side effects of the vaccine. Myocarditis has been reported as one of the potential side effects from the mRNA vaccine, affecting young healthy individuals.


This article presents a case series analysing patients presenting with symptoms compatible with myo- or pericarditis shortly after first or second dose of the SARS-CoV-2-mRNA-vaccine.
