12 (twelve) key studies presented here show cardiovascular side-effects as well as myocarditis, primarily in children, young & middle-age adults, linked to BNT162b2 & mRNA-1273 & adenovirus (ChAdOx1)

by Paul Alexander

All 3 vaccines, BNT162b2 (Pfizer) and mRNA-1273 (Moderna) & adenovirus (ChAdOx1) are associated with cardiovascular complications
