Liberals went into full meltdown when Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo urged men 18-39 to avoid the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna.
Ladapo cited an increased risk of heart disease for that demographic, based on a review of death certificates.
Critics, such as Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, called the surgeon general a “quack,” and questioned his knowledge, training, and concern for people.
Yet now, according to The Daily Mail, an Australian cardiologist has called for ending the jabs from the shots made by Pfizer and Moderna, after seeing a rise in adverse heart conditions.
“These mRNA vaccines are very pro-inflammatory. It’s very rare to have full-blown myocarditis where the heart’s like a big floppy bag not pumping well. But I’ve seen a lot of people get chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, and their heart seems okay,” Dr. Ross Walker told the Daily Mail.
“They have evidence of some changes on the ECG [electrocardiogram, or an EKG] or some heart damage on the blood tests,” he added.
The Daily Mail noted that across Australia’s general population, COVID-related myocarditis, a serious disease that causes inflammation within the middle layer of the heart, runs about 3.2 cases per 100,000 people.
The vaccines produce the illness at about the same rate.
But, according to the Daily Mail, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration has discovered that the myocarditis risk “increases substantially after mRNA-based vaccines for boys aged 12-17 and men under 30.”
Among boys 12-17, Moderna can cause myocarditis in 24 of every 100,000 people, while Pfizer’s jab posts a rate of about 13 per 100,000.
Men under 30 have a 23 in 100,000 risk after Moderna vaccines and about 9 in 100,000 for Pfizer.
That is largely the same demographic that Ladapo encouraged to avoid getting vaxxed with those shots.
“Getting Covid is ten times worse than getting vaccinated, but we don’t need to use mRNA vaccines like Pfizer and Moderna,” Walker told Daily Mail.
“We have to put COVID in perspective where it is right now, not where it was 12 months ago because it has changed and I think we are seeing a change.”
Walker based his recommendation on the fact that roughly 70 of his own patients over the past year have had adverse heart-related reactions to mRNA jabs.
Walker, by the way, is not anti-vax.
“We have [vaccine] alternatives like AstraZeneca and Novavax which are just as good,” he said.
