Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Friday release the state's analysis of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, revealing an 84 percent "increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39." Florida "will not be silent on the truth," he said.
The guidance "recommends against the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old." In a statement, Ladapo said that "Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health. Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians."
The Florida Department of Health released the findings of a self-controlled case series which they used to evaluate the safety of the Covid vaccines, which "studied mortality risk following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination."
It found that "there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination."
The findings also showed that "Males over the age of 60 had a 10% increased risk of cardiac-related death within 28 days of mRNA vaccination," and that "Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks among any population.
The guidance suggests that Floridians talk to their doctors and health care providers about the relative benefits and risks of vaaccination for Covid with use of mRNA vaccines, and that it should be weighed against the potential risks of Covid.
This analysis comes after the Florida Department of Health issued guidance in March that recommended against use of the Covid mRNA vaccines for "healthy children and adolescents 5 years old to 17 years old."
The state also recommends "against COVID-19 vaccination among infants and children under 5 years old, which has since been issued under Emergency Use Authorization." When this guidance for children was issued, the Biden administration accused Ladapo of being a "politician."
Florida is not alone in their guidance. Sweden recommends against Covid mRNA vaccines for children ages 5-11. The Danish Health Authority recommends against Covid mRNA vaccines for children under 18. The UK has rolled back their offering of Covid jabs to children ages 5-11, per guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.
The Biden administration continues to encourage vaccines for kids and adults, and recently made a large buy of booster shots, some 171 million bivalent booster doses the day after FDA approval.
Alex Gutentag at Tablet Magazine reports that "in May 2022, the FDA authorized monovalent Pfizer boosters for children ages 5-11 based on laboratory data that showed heightened antibody response levels in just 67 children."
