The impact of the global health crisis due to the virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) —the causative pathogen of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)—has begun to alter with the timely development, approval and administration of vaccines . Although SARS-CoV-2 infection primarily targets the respiratory system [2–6], it is now recognised that the infection and its clinical manifestations are systemic [7–12], and also affecting the cardiovascular system of adults and children [13–20].

When I had reviewed the topic of vaccine associated myocarditis for an editorial in the BMH Medical Journal in 2017, most of the cases were associated with small pox vaccination . There were also reports of streptococcal pneumonia vaccine and influenza vaccine associated myocarditis. Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) used in the vaccine were also implicated in some cases [2,3]. While the large scale vaccination for small pox in an attempt to prepare for potential bioterrorism was the association in 2003 , COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are currently in the limelight for vaccine induced myocarditis...

Circulation. 2021 Jul 20. doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.121.056135. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMyocarditis has been recognized as a rare complication of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) mRNA vaccinations, especially in young adult and adolescent males. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), myocarditis/pericarditis rates are approximately 12.6 cases per million doses of second dose mRNA vaccine among 12-39-year-olds. In reported cases, patients with myocarditis invariably presented with chest pain, usually 2-3 days after a second dose of mRNA vaccination and had elevated cardiac troponin levels. ECG was abnor...
