June 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added new warnings of heart inflammation risks to fact sheets for COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.
The warnings refer to myocarditis and pericarditis after a second dose of either vaccine, the FDA announced on Friday. Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle, while pericarditis is inflammation of the lining around the heart. Symptoms, like shortness of breath or chest pain, typically occur within a few days of vaccination, the FDA said.
Fact sheets for both patients and healthcare providers have been updated, the agency said, adding that the change “follows an extensive review of information” and a meeting of the CDC’s vaccine safety committee last week.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the CDC (ACIP) had convened on Wednesday and discussed a surge in heart inflammation cases following COVID-19 vaccination. Data presented at the meeting revealed that over 1,200 cases of myocarditis or pericarditis have been reported to U.S. health authorities after a dose of either Pfizer’s or Moderna’s shot.
The higher-than-expected cases included more than 800 among patients who had taken a second COVID-19 vaccine dose. The vast majority of cases involved males, and around 39% involved individuals under 30 years old, according to a presentation by Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, CDC deputy director of vaccine safety.
Public commenters at the ACIP meeting warned that heart inflammation cases, which were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), may be significantly undercounted. VAERS, a vaccine injury surveillance system run by the CDC and the FDA, has been criticized by experts for serious efficacy problems.
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

** While LifeSite opposes immorally-produced vaccines using aborted fetal cell lines, we do not have a position on any particular coronavirus vaccines produced without such moral problems. We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.

The CDC has determined that there is a “likely association” between heart inflammation and the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. However CDC officials continue to insist that the benefits of the vaccines outweigh the now-acknowledged risks. The CDC and FDA have not recommended a pause on either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, as they did with the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine earlier this year due to blood clot reports. Children and young adults have a less than 0.1% death rate from coronavirus.
