Heart Inflammation Probed As Potential Vaccine Side Effect In Teens
Medical experts are looking to determine whether recent cases of heart inflammation in teens are a rare side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine, The Associated Press reports. An article published in Pediatrics revealed that seven teen boys who received the Pfizer shot between April and May developed chest pain. Imaging tests revealed heart and muscle inflammation. However, a link between inflammation and the vaccine has not been proven. The type of inflammation experienced by the teens, which is called "myocarditis," is a common occurence in the presence of several other types of infections. None of the boys were considered critically ill and all were considered healthy enough to be discharged from the hospital after two to six days.
Mike Pence Says He And Donald Trump Still Don't See Eye-To-Eye On Capitol Insurrection
It's been almost six months since rioters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to interfere with democracy and former Vice President Mike Pence says that he and Donald Trump may never agree regarding the events that took place on that deadly day. "January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol, but thanks to the swift action of the Capitol Police and federal law enforcement, violence was quelled, the Capitol was secured and that same day we reconvened the Congress and did our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States," Pence told a crowd of Republican activists Thursday, according to CBS News. "President Trump and I have spoken many times since we've left office and I don't know if we'll ever see eye-to-eye on that day, but I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years."
