Sperrazza told KOCO 5 that experts are studying a small number of cases that have been reported in multiple countries among young people who recently received their second dose of one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
“It’s where you get immolation from a virus or from the vaccine,” Sperrazza said.
He said there’s no need to panic. It’s a very small number of minors who have had this reaction.
“There’s been at least 4 million kids vaccinated under the age of 17 so far, and the cases that have been reported have only been a handful,” Sperrazza said.
He explained that at this time, no one can prove that it’s linked to the vaccine yet, but health experts are looking into it.
“It would take a lot more studies and more cases to come to that correlation,” Sperrazza said.
For anyone who has a child with underlying health issues, Sperrazza encourages them to get their child vaccinated because the risk of getting COVID-19 could be more dangerous than the possibility of inflamed heart muscles.
