Are children dying from heart attacks caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Children Are Dying From Heart Attacks Caused By Vaccine!
People are sharing an article by tech millionaire Steve Kirsch, which suggests that children are dying from heart attacks caused by the COVID-19 vaccines.
First was an “owner of many funeral homes across the US”, who allegedly claimed that they have never seen a 15 year-old die from a heart attack, but in December 2022 alone, they handled three such cases.
Second was “a very experienced nurse” who never heart of a 15 year old with a heart attack in her entire career, but now hears of them on a regular basis.
Here is an excerpt from his article, but it’s still rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:
Ever since the vaccines rolled out, deaths are up, particularly among young people.
I talked to the owner of many funeral homes across the US; collectively they handle over 3,000 funerals a year. He asked that his name be kept confidential for fear of retribution.
No Evidence Children Are Dying From Heart Attacks Caused By Vaccine!
This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION being created to scare people about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Heart Attack Is Not Cardiac Arrest
First, I think it is important to establish that a heart attack (myocardial infarction) is not the same thing as a cardiac arrest.
A cardiac arrest is an electrical problem that causes the heart to stop beating completely, causing the person to collapse and lose consciousness, as we have seen with many young athletes like Christian Eriksen and Paul Duncan, as well as children like Jackson Mohr.
A heart attack is a circulation problem where blood supply to the heart is interrupted, typically by a blood clot. The person will often experience chest pain, shortness of breath, and even feel light-headed or nauseous.
It is also important to note that people who suffer a heart attack can develop an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest.
Fact #2 : Heart Attack Is Not Myocarditis
Second, it is also important to note that myocarditis and pericarditis are different from a heart attack (myocardial infarction.
Myocarditis and pericarditis are, respectively, inflammation of the heart muscle, and its lining. They are known rare side effects of mRNA vaccines, as well as more commonly – viral infections.
A heart attack, as explained earlier, occurs when the heart’s blood supply is interrupted, often by a blood clot blocking one or more coronary arteries. No COVID-19 vaccine is known to cause heart attacks in children or in adults.
Fact #3 : Children Can And Do Die From Heart Attacks
Most of us probably (and thankfully!) won’t know of a child who has suffered from a heart attack, or tragically, died from one.
So it may seem believable when we are told that a funeral home owner, or even a nurse, has never seen a child die from a heart attack. The sad truth is – children can and do die from heart attacks.
In the United Kingdom, the UK Office for National Statistics reported that over 19,000 children (19 years and younger) without any known underlying disease die from heart attacks every single year.
- 2018 : 19,654 children died from acute myocardial infarction
- 2019 : 19,386 children died from acute myocardial infarction
- 2020 : 19,440 children died from acute myocardial infarction
Fact #4 : No Evidence Childhood Deaths From Heart Attacks Increased By 100X
It appears that Steve Kirsch based his claim that childhood deaths from heart attacks increased on anecdotes from that funeral home owners. My emphasis in bold.
Like most funeral homes, they don’t tally statistics but they remember the anecdotes. The most noticeable thing is that the events are happening disproportionally to younger people (i.e., people under 65).
So if elderly deaths are only up by 15%, but younger age groups are increased by 100% or more, the overall all-cause mortality for all ages will only increase modestly (since younger people rarely die).
Somehow, that increase by 100% (2X increase) later became “kids dying of heart attacks are up by 100X over normal“, which is a 10,000% increase.
I’m not sure if this is a typo and he really meant a 100% (2X) increase, since Kirsch repeated the 100X increase twice.
Fact #5 : No Evidence Childhood Deaths From Heart Attacks Increased By 100X
There is no evidence that childhood deaths from heart attacks have increased, never mind whether it’s by 2X (100%) or 100X.
But if we use Kirsch’s claim to extrapolate from the data (see Fact #3) that an average of 19,000 children in the UK die from heart attacks every year before the vaccine was introduced, that would mean:
- 100% increase : 38,000 children in the UK should die every year post-vaccination
- 10000% increase : 1.9 million children in the UK should die every year post-vaccination
Just FYI, there are only about 14 million children under the age of 18 in the United Kingdom. Since COVID-19 vaccines have been introduced for over 2 years now, the UK should have seen :
- 100% increase : 76,000 children dead from heart attacks
- 10000% increase : 3.8 million children dead from heart attacks
I look forward to Steve Kirsch, or anyone else, providing that so many children really died from heart attacks, whether they are caused by the COVID-19 vaccines or otherwise.
