Dr. Peter McCullough Discusses Number of Vaccinated Children Developing Subclinical Myocarditis: “There Is No Heart Damage That’s Mild or Inconsequential”


In an interview with ex-The Hill contributor Kim Iversen, Dr. Peter McCullough discussed an alarming pre-print study from Thailand that suggested 1 in 43 vaccinated children could be developing heart issues.

The pre-print study states:

This study focuses on cardiovascular effects, particularly myocarditis and pericarditis events, after BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine injection in Thai adolescents. This prospective cohort study enrolled students from two schools aged 13–18 years who received the second dose of the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Data including demographics, symptoms, vital signs, ECG, echocardiography and cardiac enzymes were collected at baseline, Day 3, Day 7, and Day 14 (optional) using case record forms.We enrolled 314 participants; of these, 13 participants were lost to follow up, leaving 301 participants for analysis. The most common cardiovascular effects were tachycardia (7.64%), shortness of breath (6.64%), palpitation (4.32%), chest pain (4.32%), and hypertension (3.99%). Seven participants (2.33%) exhibited at least one elevated cardiac biomarker or positive lab assessments. Cardiovascular effects were found in 29.24% of patients, ranging from tachycardia, palpitation, and myopericarditis. Myopericarditis was confirmed in one patient after vaccination. Two patients had suspected pericarditis and four patients had suspected subclinical myocarditis. Conclusion: Cardiovascular effects in adolescents after BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccination included tachycardia, palpitation, and myocarditis. The clinical presentation of myopericarditis after vaccination was usually mild, with all cases fully recovering within 14 days. Hence, adolescents receiving mRNA vaccines should be monitored for side effects.

“Subclinical is very, very important,” Dr. McCullough explained.

Vigilant Fox noted in this substack post:

In short, subclinical myocarditis. Or myocarditis that has ‘flown under the radar’ that hasn’t been detected by a physical examination, laboratory test, or otherwise.

“Subclinical means they don’t know they have it,” Dr. McCullough stated.

“That means American children who are getting the vaccine, some of them have no symptoms, yet they’re sustaining heart damage,” he added.

“Heart damage causes scarring. When there’s a scar, that’s a setup for an abnormal heart rhythm and that abnormal heart rhythm can lead to a cardiac arrest,” he explained.

“The reason why myocarditis is so important in children is that when there’s superimposed adrenaline and noradrenaline in exercise, it is the trigger for cardiac arrest.”
