Smallpox Vaccine Has the Strongest Association with Myocarditis, Per NIH Paper


A 2018 paper published in the NIH’s National Library of Medicine discusses the association of the smallpox vaccine and myocarditis.

The paper titled, “Myocarditis secondary to smallpox vaccination” says the smallpox vaccine has the strongest association to myocarditis.

Public health officials fully understand the potentially fatal side effects of the smallpox vaccine.

From the NIH National Library of Medicine:

The development of vaccines ushered in the most profound advancement in 20th century medicine, and have widely been regarded as the one of the most important scientific discovery in the history of mankind. However, vaccines are not without risk; reactions can range from injection site reactions to life-threatening anaphylaxis. Among the more serious vaccine-related sequela is myocarditis. Although myocarditis has been reported following many different vaccines, the smallpox vaccine has the strongest association. We report a case of a 36-year-old active duty service member presenting with progressive dyspnoea, substernal chest pain and lower extremity swelling 5 weeks after receiving the vaccinia vaccination. The aetiology of his acute decompensated heart failure was determined to be from myocarditis. Although the majority of cases of myocarditis resolve completely, some patients develop chronic heart failure and even death. Vaccine-associated myocarditis should always be on the differential for patients that exhibit cardiopulmonary symptoms after recent vaccinations.

Fraudci acknowledged the potentially fatal side effects from the smallpox vaccine, including myocarditis.


“Since smallpox, as effective of a vaccine as it is, has some rare but nonetheless very serious, toxic side effects,” Fraudci said.

“If you’re immunosuppressed, it could be deadly. If you’re one of those people who have this strange myocarditis,” he added.

Fraudci explained they would not vaccinate the entire country for the illness and said the country would not accept being vaccinated.

“We knew that,” he smirked.
