“The federal government's medical establishment releasing guidance failing at the most basic level of academic rigor shows that this was never about health care," state Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo said in a statement.

Florida Surgeon General Recommends Against mRNA Vaccines For Young Men Because Of Heart-Related Risks

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo on Friday announced new guidelines for mRNA vaccines — the type used for COVID-19 shots — after the state’s research found an elevated risk of heart disease in young men.

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo on Friday announced new guidelines for mRNA vaccines — the type used for COVID-19 shots — after the state’s research found an elevated risk of heart disease in young men.

Ladapo is urging young men to not get the COVID vaccine based on the findings. He recommended that those with pre-existing heart conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, take extra caution before deciding to receive the jab.

According to a Florida Department of Health press release, the department’s research found an 84 percent increase in the relative incidences of cardiac-related deaths among men ages 18 to 39 within four weeks of getting an mRNA jab.

“With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group. Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks,” the department said in the release.

In his own statement, Ladapo said, “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 research was based on Florida’s own COVID cases. The Health Department analyzed all deaths that were either natural or cardiac-related that occurred within 25 weeks of being vaxxed.

The study found that within 28 days after a vaccination, a “statistically significant” increase was reported in cardiac-related deaths for the whole study population. The initial findings suggested that boost was driven by higher death rates among people 25 to 39 and 60 or older.

When researchers broke down the data further, including for age groups and sex, the highest risk of a cardiac-related death was found among men 18 to 39 who had received the mRNA vaccine, such as used by Pfizer and Moderna.

Beyond the 84 percent spike in younger men, the study determined that men over 60 had an increased risk of 10 percent of a cardiac-related death within four weeks of a vaccine.

Researchers did not see a similar outcome among the non-mRNA shot.

The Health Department acknowledged that the study had some limitations. The results should be considered preliminary and accepted with some caution, the department added, and it called for additional research.

Still, the correlation was strong enough that Ladapo issued new guidelines calling on healthcare providers to make young men aware of the vaccines’ increased risk of heart failure. The department also reiterated its stance to recommend against vaccines for children.

“The risk associated with mRNA vaccination should be weighed against the risk associated with COVID-19 infection,” the guidelines stated. “ With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group.”
