Indian-led study shows low Covid-vax risk for teens


An alumni of a Kerala medical college and paediatric cardiologist has carried out a Covid-related study that shows vaccine-associated myocarditis risk among adolescents.

Researchers from Australia’s Monash University have completed a study of vaccine-associated myocarditis risk in adolescents, showing that risks are “mild” and outweighed by the long-term risks of Covid-19.

The study, published in the Medical Journal of Australia on Monday, followed the course of 33 adolescents, between the ages of 12 and 18, who presented to Monash Children’s Hospital with typical symptoms of myocarditis following receiving a Covid-19 vaccine, reports Xinhua.
