A huge new study has found the risk of serious heart problems called myocarditis in men under 40 soars with each dose of a Covid mRNA vaccine - and is sharply higher than the risk from a coronavirus infection itself.
The findings call into sharp question the efforts by American colleges and universities to make their students receive booster shots before returning to school this January - especially since other studies have shown that the risk of post-vaccine myocarditis is concentrated not merely in men under 40 but in those aged 16-25.
The study, which British researchers released in late December, showed that the risk of myocarditis almost doubled after the first Pfizer shot in men under 40. Then it doubled again after the second and doubled again after the third - to almost eight times the baseline risk.
For the Moderna vaccine, the risks were even higher, reaching 16-fold after the second shot. (The risk of a third Moderna shot could not be calculated because too few people received it.)
Because each Moderna shot contains 100 micrograms of mRNA, while each Pfizer shot contains 30, the findings suggest strongly that the heart risks are dose-related and likely to continue to rise with each additional shot.
The study also contained some evidence that post-vaccine myocarditis might be more dangerous than other forms of myocarditis. It showed a trend towards higher death rates in people hospitalized for myocarditis after vaccination compared to other myocarditis cases.
Both myocarditis and pericarditis are forms of heart inflammation that can be very serious, even deadly. In an appendix, the researchers reported that 263 Britons were hospitalized for myocarditis within four weeks of receiving a Pfizer shot; of those, 38, or 14 percent, died. Only about 9 percent of people hospitalized for myocarditis that did not follow an mRNA vaccination died.
The researchers did not look at other potential cardiovascular risks, such as heart attacks or irregular heartbeats, although American and European databases of post-vaccine side effects contain many reports of those as well.
The findings come even as many colleges and universities - including public schools like the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, large private schools such as Syracuse University, and Ivy League institutions such as Princeton University - demand that their students receive a booster Covid shot before returning to campus.
For nearly all these students, an mRNA shot is the only viable option, as the Johnson & Johnson shot is no longer in common use.
These colleges are likely subjecting their male students to a risk of myocarditis and pericarditis, a related illness, that is much higher than the overall risk of Covid, which is vanishingly small for healthy teenagers and young adults. Many larger universities are likely to have multiple cases of male students hospitalized for myocarditis as a result of the mandates.
The massive study was is based on data from 42 million Britons who received at least one Covid vaccine dose, including roughly 22 million who received the mRNA vaccines.
About half were given the mRNA vaccines, while the rest received AstraZeneca’s DNA/AAV vaccine, which is not available in the United States. The AstraZeneca vaccine, which works similarly to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, had a lower risk of myocarditis than mRNA vaccines.
My 7 year old son who did not get this shot (but is pressured to daily from our city) tested positive last night. He had a mild fever — I gave him one dose of children’s Tylenol before bed and he woke up feeling fine. He’ll hydrate and rest and watch movies all day with big sis who is Covid negative but required to quarantine.
It doesn’t matter to me — I’m happy to keep my babies close and give them extra care and they can miss as many school days as required. My heart aches for those who do not have this luxury. Additionally— witnessing how this virus plays out in a healthy child in my own home — it is ASTONISHING what we are subjecting children to — it is just appalling. I am heartened that there is a control group — these young kids — And we can see how this plays out. My kid’s symptoms are the same / more mild than his peers who got the shot and also have Covid right now. It’s all just so absurd, this whole thing.
Remember when students used to ask questions, refused to obey if answers made no sense at all and were eager to protest against abuses of authority? 😞
This confirms what cardiologist Dr McCullough has been saying for months about the cardio toxicity of the jabs.
It’s ‘an extremely rare event’ until it happens to your own kid and other people you know…any other vax would have been pulled off the market at the first sign of this extremely dangerous adverse event.
What a college degree now means:
1. Ruining one’s finances at $70,000 a year
2. Ruining one’s mind (to get what amounts to a “receipt” from university — not an education); AND NOW along with
3. Ruining one’s health…
O.K. parents. What say ye??? My cost/benefit calculator is screaming: TILT!!! TILT!!!!
But all we’re hearing is: bbaaaaaahhh…
I have started a telegram group called College Parents for those fighting booster mandates for college students. In less than 48 hours, we have over 160 members and it is growing by the hour. Please consider joining us at this link. https://t.me/+03TE_DjGyiYwOTI5 Our goal is to share information and connect people and take action.
My 19 year old daughter has been forced into the booster to return to her Big 10 school then told to stay home for three weeks of remote learning. What a crock of BS. Plus she has been sick ever since her first shot. Presently sleeping after an urgent Doctor visit last night for stomach issues, throwing up bile and low blood pressure. But I'm sure it has nothing to do with the unnecessary shots she has been coerced into taking. Her Doctor actually said it was good she had her booster. I just don't understand. Full transparency, she wants the shots and thinks it will be her ticket to safety. Although she has zero comorbidities and was previously fine. Big glasses of Cool Aid being served up to our young kids. Pray. Plan. Prepare. Resist.
Parents of these college students: take your freaking kids out of these schools!! 🤦♀️
I wrote to my son's university president at Brown multiple times in the fall of 2020 when they started testing the kids twice a week, and while she was very cordial, it was always about following CDC guidelines, that I pointed out were not based on real scientific evidence. He was lucky to graduate before the vax madness, but what is apparent to me know is that these "esteemed" institutions are all captured by big pharma, and much of their science dept. budgets are highly dependent and that largess. RFK Jr. covers this relationship in depth in the new Fauci book, as well.
Men over 40 are probably having the same issue. They can hide it because men over 40 have heart attacks.
And my son, a firefighter and EMT, in his mid-thirties, strong and robust, treated scores of COVID patients from the beginning of the pandemic, got really sick after being forced to take the vaccine. Now is considering retiring. Just for the sake, as RFK Jr. described them, of sociopathic billionaires.
It makes sense they are cumulative, but that is the kind of thing a long term trial would have been nice to have before rolling out the vaccine to half the world. That said, it actually made little sense from a cost benefit standpoint to get the shot even if there were no heart problems. The vaccine doesn't even meet its endpoints in a year long trial.
Based on this information, I am authorizing biweekly booster shots for Biden, Fauci, and all associated evil freaks beginning immediately until I say stop. Just want to make sure they are safe.
I replied to a friend's FaceBook comment, a copy-and-paste proclamation that I'd seen before that she didn't know what was in vaccines anymore than she knew what was in the KFC secret recipe, but she trusted authorities and would take them just like she and her children took their shots for measles, polio, etc. Then there was the usual list of virtuous posturing justifying vaccination which ended with "To protect my family and others" and urging copy and paste sharing the message, all implying that failure to vaccinate was selfish and ignorant. #VaccineNationalism
I wrote that I knew what was in the vaccines and had a medical exemption to them. I urged those on that thread to read Brownstone and Children's Health Defense. Then the pile on happened. I responded with links to science, VAERS reports and a few quotes from credentialed experts. I also emphasized that Covid is real, but the vaccines are not without their risks - that it isn't an either/or situation, that we deserve truth, choice, and therapeutics. The ONLY data provided by the other side was a link to Wikipedia trashing Bobby Kennedy.
My friend told me to feel free to unfriend her, and spoke about praying for a friend in the hospital with Covid; and a nurse (who I do not know) told me that Brownstone was a garbage group and she didn't believe anything I said, wouldn't read anything I provided, and that she was smarter than me.
That says it all, doesn't it?

Can educational institutions be sued by families if their child contracted myocarditis/pericarditis as a result of being required to be injected prior to enrollment? BigPharma may have immunity, but the colluders (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-a-colluder-stop-enabling) may not …
And yet no such study is being done in the US. Further confirmation that the FDA, CDC and NIH are corrupt and/or inept. Probably both.
I hope these students file MAJOR class-action suits against these Universities. They have ZERO right to force their customers to take shots. And YES, these students ARE CUSTOMERS... most kids don't realize that... but they are paying these people to provide a service... which now days is an over-priced, more-often-than-not useless service. But regardless THEY ARE CUSTOMERS. They cannot be demanded upon for medical treatments of any kind, period. What the hell kind of businesses and who do these universities think they are... they need to be severely sued on many accounts in my opinion... another one that comes to mind is product fraud. They are paid so their customers get and education and a good paying job and career... how many actually attain that?
And Our Military falls into this age group too...Destroying our national defense seems to be part of the plan.
This makes me ill? Are these asshat "public health" officials trying to injure teens and young males? As the mom of a 17 year old male I am just sick to my stomach over this stuff. It makes me wanna cry. My mother in law told me after I had my first child, " when you become a parent you become a parent to the whole world." It is so true. I pray every day for these kids who I don't even know.
Anyone still paying university tuition (or worse, going into a lifetime of debt) is an absolute fool. Parents, you have to stop telling your kids that a university degree is the only way to be successful. All it says now is that someone spent $80k to $200k to jump through useless hoops and be indoctrinated. The Covid insanity is the last nail in that coffin.
Not just young men. My 'old man', 64 at the time, was hospitalized with myocarditis. The hospitalists agreed with me, off the record of course, that it was a direct result from the Moderna series. He had no reaction after the first. None. The second sent his immune system into a rabbit hole culminating in the cardiac unit stint.
Will these SOBs ever be held to account for this?
And what exactly is the Booster! rationale here? Who is being protected by these shots?
About a month ago, I was sitting in my local Rotary meeting, listening to our guest - a rep from the local hospital explaining how overwhelmed the hospital was with covid patients. Sitting at my table was an older gentleman friend, and the other person was the school district superindentent/CEO. My older gentleman friend asked the superintendent how the schools are doing in regard to illness. His response was "I'm checking the vaccination numbers right now" (he was on his phone). What??? That wasn't the question! But that was his focus. My opinion is that people "in the system" are a combination of: 1) making sure to cya 2) doing what will make their job easier by pushing to hit a number of vaccinated 3) not bright enough to care enough 4) looking to keep their job at all cost. Our 4 children are adults that, as of this past spring, are officially out of all school systems. Thank goodness and my sadness is so great for those parents dealing with this incompetence. We have authorities in the school systems that are focused on getting as many kids vaccinated so they can check off on their list that they did their part in dealing with covid. When this superintendent responded this way to the question, it took all I had to remain calm, although I was clearly agitated. He didn't care - he has numbers to hit so he can declare to the world that his school district has done what they are supposed to do by getting kids vaccinated, thus making their world safe. And he can keep his high paying job.
On the other end of this meeting was the very kind gal at the hospital explaining what they are dealing with. (We are in a smallish town with one school district and one hospital, very near a large metropolitan area-there's money in this smallish town.) She explained that their pre-covid average hospital stay was 2 days, now it is 15. I was given the last question and it was: "What is the hospital doing for treatment to reduce that 15 day average?" The answer - literally nothing. And I am not sure how many in the room actually picked up on that. She seemed to be a very kind and thoughtful person, which I do not doubt. She looked to be on the verge of tears during the entire presentation.
I've been asking questions about how this thing has been handled, from every angle, since it started. From the idea of keeping big box stores open to how they are dealing with the sick to the lockdowns to the vaccines to the treatments....I'm just your average 55 year old that has not been able to square any of this from the start...and many of my super smart friends and family have not and still do not see any of this as being odd! The only conclusion I can come to is that my very intelligent friends and family that are not seeing past the obvious are simply willing to just accept what they see and hear from traditional news sources and don't ask the obvious "why?" questions along the way. There is so much more naivete than I ever thought there could be. I have come to believe that they simply choose the easy route - it's easier to just cruise through this weird life letting others tell you what to think and do and then you can pat yourself on the back and feel good about it. Don't make waves! Don't risk your job!
Thank God there are enough people that are willing to share REAL information (thank you Alex and others including proverbs31girl.com), including the other every day average neighbor that shares what they have experienced in their family - the good and the bad - and how to actually deal with family and friends that get sick. Through a "like-minded" co-worker, I learned about FLCCC as well as a local doc willing to fill a prescription of ivermectin-which helped my family members. And to learn where to go for monoclonal treatments-which are terribly hard to get in this past week! Fortunately I was able to lead some high-risk family members to be able to get monoclonal treatments and they were grateful to have learned about them.
I needed to vent, and could go on and on for hours of all the stupidity I've heard and just shake my head at - people I know and love that simply want the easy answers so they can try to go about a normal life. God bless them for being able to do that. I sometimes wish I was that simple-minded when it comes to this blasted plague!! Hopefully, everyday, we get a small step closer to people thinking a little more deeply and being willing to challenge.
I was listening to the peak prosperity podcast today and Dr Martenson was talking about the NY AG just announced she will be suing any doctor from the FLCCC that prescribes Ivermectin to NY residents if they don’t cease and desist. These people are simply demonic. If you needed another reason to join the almost 350k who already left NY, here it is. They want people to simply suffer and die.
Here is a very interesting and important (but flawed) study comparing the risk of myocarditis in the vaccinated to those testing positive for COVID. Flawed, because it should have used infected as the basis instead of testing positive. They end up overstating the COVID risk by about 300%.
“Risk of myocarditis following sequential COVID-19 vaccinations by age and sex”
An addendum of this study: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-021-01630-0.pdf
Male < 40 years old - increase in probability over natural risk:
COVID: 2.02 (2.02x over natural)
Moderna 1 dose: 2.04 (equal to COVID)
Moderna 2 dose: 16.52 (8.17x over COVID)
Moderna 3 dose: n/a (scary thought)
Pfizer 3 dose: 7.6 (3.76x over COVID)
Male 16-19: not stratified, but will be about 30x over natural risk for 2 dose Moderna.
Overall (all cohorts combined) - increase in probability over natural risk:
AstraZeneca 1 dose: 1.27
AstraZeneca 2 dose: .94
AstraZeneca 3 dose: n/a
Pfizer 1 dose: 1.37
Pfizer 2 dose: 1.60
Pfizer 3 dose: 2.02
Moderna 1 dose: 1.8
Moderna 2 dose: 13.71 (risk well over COVID)
Moderna 3 dose: n/a
Had they used the right denominator (infected instead of testing positive) they would have found the COVID risk to be closer to 1/3 of that listed. This is because there is about 2x as many non-tested infections. Non-tested infections are obviously more mild or asymptomatic, thus cause little or no myocarditis. Note, if you assume a 50% natural immunity rate, and a 25% probability of catching a myocarditis causing variant (non-Omicron), the COVID risk is almost statistically equal to natural. For all cohorts, male or female, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines would then cause more myocarditis than COVID.
Reality is likely even worse yet. They admit in the paper: “Myocarditis is underdiagnosed in practice, with clinical bias being directed towards myocardial ischemia or infarction. Thus, our use of diagnostic codes for myocarditis from routine data suggest that the ascertainment of cardiac inflammation after COVID-19 vaccination is likely to be under- rather than over-represented”. In addition, I hypothesize that MDs are reluctant to diagnose vaccine related myocarditis for fear of promoting “vaccine hesitancy”. For instance, 29-year-old Kyle Warner, a professional mountain bike racer, went to the ER with burning chest pains just after getting vaccinated. He was sent away and advised to seek counseling for “stress”. He finally got diagnosed with pericarditis after several later attempts to get help. He probably would have been helped the first day if he hadn’t disclosed that he was just vaccinated. He now has a severe, long-term disability, ending his athletic career.
Notice how with each dose, the risk rises dramatically. Is this due to more spike protein? Notice the AstraZeneca is not associated with myocarditis. It has many other sins (blood clotting, nerve damage, etc.) but does not seem to cause myocarditis, why? It appears that this vaccine uses a different spike protein. Michelle Kinder, PhD: “The AstraZeneca vaccine uses the wild-type protein sequence while the Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, Novavax and Janssen include a slight modification to the sequence meant to stabilize the protein in the “prefusion” conformation.” Is a more rigid spike protein causing problems?
The “fact checkers” (aka Bullshitters) accused Robert Malone of spreading misinformation. They said he claimed, falsely, that the spike protein is harmful. They stated no actual facts, but claimed that spike proteins are used in other, “safe” vaccines. But this argument is invalid because the spike protein in the COVID vaccines is different, apparently more rigid. Also, Moderna uses much higher doses. It shouldn’t be surprising that a more rigid spike protein, at much higher doses, can cause many more very serious harms than COVID, or other vaccines. Just a hypothesis, but something to consider.
This is becoming worse and worse with every passing day. The mRNA light of the end of the tunnel turned out to be an incoming train and I am concerned, that we are seeing just the tip of the iceberg of the consequences.
Can't the schools be held liable for injuries? How can schools and employers mandate non FDA approved products? Comirnaty is the only approved Vaccine, and it is not available. Are there no lawsuits using this line of reasoning?
I live in Puerto Rico (highest v a x rate in the US yet they've from a high 1500 cases to a rolling 7-day avg of 10,000/day) and children as young as 5 CANNOT return to school unless they get the V A X. Not only is it harmful, it's useless. Has anybody bothered to ask why we're giving one with an old strain, rendering it useless against Omicron and even Delta? I feel like I'm screaming into a void.
We are gearing up for a fight with the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. My son was fully vaxxed to attend in the fall and contracted a moderate case of COVID in November (great vaccine!) He now has "super immunity" but the University will not recognize this. We are being told there are no exemptions other that religious or medical.
My oldest daughter is an English professor at Amherst. She has always been academically brilliant yet sadly lacking common sense. Though 2X injected got covid. She's okay now...for the moment. Though she's not listen to her parents for some time (superior intellect don't ya know) we still love her and worry about her.
Among those I know who are jabbed, many are sick with all sorts of weird stuff. Four contracted covid anyway (daughter included) and two have all of a sudden aggressive cancers , one of which looks to be terminal, (found out the "terminal part today. He's in his mid-40's and was in great health pre-jab).
In my life I have tried to be optimistic and proactive yet realistic when it comes to issues of life. As with most of us here, I've wanted to fix that which needs fixing and right what is wrong. I hope I/ we can remain strong for ourselves and others through this time of darkness.

Any lawyers out there?
Big Pharma has inoculated itself from any legal liabilities for the poisons it is pushing and government is, of course, never held responsible for its actions. But what about private organizations, or even state colleges which are forcing their subjects to take an ever-more known to be dangerous drug against their will? Especially so with colleges where half of their populace (young males) are smack in the target age of vaccine-induced myocarditis?
Risk death or forfeit your degree (though not, of course, the loans)?
This would seem a potential goldmine. Suing these corrupt and elitist cabals out of existence would seem a fitting outcome. Then maybe they can start from scratch and go back to actual education.
Everyone within sight of my words, IMMEDIATELY REMOVE YOUR KIDS FROM GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS! There simply is no other way.
Parents... your posts about trying to negotiate with universities are very sad. STOP paying tuition at these corrupt institutions and get your kids out of there. It's like you're trying to keep up the room and board at Auschwitz. STOP.
STOP. TESTING.NOW. PERIOD.!!
I propose a simple solution: the Presidents & Board Members of these institutions agree that they will hang one of their own for each young adult who dies from myocarditis. And, they agree that their endowments will pay compensation for all long-term disability.
Alex, I love your work, but please just complete the circle. When you give us actual numbers of myocarditis cases and deaths, from the study, you could mention the fatality rate from Rona in the same age group even if the data comes from another source. Saying “vanishingly small” sounds like the way the other side reports. We’re grownups. I am here because I like truth and clarity. Then I can decide. You’re the hope right now. Bring it straight brother.
Alex, a small correction. The Moderna booster is only a half dose, so 50 mg, at least in Canada and I believe also the US.
Quebec mistakenly started giving 100 mg of Moderna to seniors and killed/maimed a bunch of them.
The worst part of all of this is vaccines are not being mandated to protect students, the cowardly admins, professors and teachers are doing this to protect themselves. And based on their actions, they do not believe their own BS. Makary editorial below is good, but misses the key point. The policies at universities are not about protecting the kids, they are about protecting the cowardly administrators and professors. The same ones that believe so much in the power of vaccines and masks, are afraid of being in a classroom (vaccinated and masked both them and the students) and getting sick. Cowards, and hypocrites. They required all of these things, making many students do so against their will, and have now reneged on their implied contractual obligation to allow students to attend class in person once they met these requirements. Once again the old sacrificing the young for their own benefit, a violation of the social contract! This is a good letter to the Stanford administration from a law student:
I never took the poison 💉
Yet I am still alive
Pharmaceutical companies have been granted immunity from liability for any adverse reactions, but what about public universities? They may be looking at significant class action law suits in the future. My son is a college freshman. As he was looking at schools in 2020, he marked off any on his list that were in states that allowed vaccine mandates. That ruled out almost all public schools outside of the southeast and all private schools. He is attending a school that he originally did not consider, and he loves it.
My oldest just turned 12 and is 75lbs. In order to be vaccinated she would need to be given the same regimen as a 300lb biker dude.
How are these shots still legal, let alone mandated??
it's an outrage that injecting or ingesting any pharma product is a pre-requisite for education let alone a useless and harmful one.
If it doubles with each booster, it won't take long to reach catastrophic levels. Here in Israel they are already giving 60+ years old a 4th shot.

And let's please be honest, the damage isn't happening to just "young men". The signal is just stronger ergo the trend more obvious. Nobody bats an eye when somebody over 50 or 60 dies of cardiac related events or ends up crippled with damage.
Re: The mortality "risk" to healthy children and young people, it's literally almost zero. I'm a freelance journalist and wrote this article about a UK study that quantified the risk. Per my extrapolations, the probability a "healthy" child age 0 to 17 (one without severe or "life-altering" medical conditions) would die FROM Covid in the first year of the pandemic was 0.0001 percent (roughly 1 in 2 million). If you go out only three decimal points, this "risk" is 0.000.
My son tested positive for Covid in August. Then, today, he tested positive again. Delta, then Omicron would be logical. Or, the first test was false in August. He is fine. But we are the hold-outs in our family because he has an aortic stenosis and I am petrified the shots would kill him.
