42.12Questioner: In the last session you said, “the self, if conscious to a great enough extent of the workings of the catalyst of fasting, and the techniques of programming, may through concentration of the will and the faculty of faith alone cause reprogramming without the analogy of fasting, diet, or other analogous body complex disciplines.” What are the techniques of programming which the higher self uses to ensure that the desired lessons are learned or attempted by the third-density self in our third-density incarnational laboratory?
Ra: I am Ra. There is but one technique for this growing or nurturing of will and faith, and that is the focusing of the attention. The attention span of those you call children is considered short. The spiritual attention span of most of your peoples is that of the child. Thus it is a matter of wishing to become able to collect one’s attention and hold it upon the desired programming.
This, when continued, strengthens the will. The entire activity can only occur when there exists faith that an outcome of this discipline is possible.
Stephanie Arnold was already a mother to two young girls, but when she became pregnant with her third child, she had a bad feeling.
It wasn’t pregnancy jitters; it wasn’t fear of the unknown — it was a premonition.
“I knew 100 percent I was going to die giving birth to my son,” Arnold told Today. She told everyone — her friends, her family, her doctors. She made public posts — goodbye letters — on social media, and she knew months before her due date that she was going to die on the operating table.
‘I told everyone who would listen.’
Where was this coming from? Why was she being morbid?
Friends and family were worried about her, and doctors didn’t quite believe her, dismissing her concerns as just nerves.
But it wasn’t just that; Arnold knew very specifically that she was going to die on the operating table, suffer kidney failure, and even need a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). It was like she had a precise but horrible vision of what was to come.
One of the last people she told was her anesthesiologist during her last medical consultation before her delivery.
It felt like a useless phone call wherein Arnold received no help; the anesthesiologist had walked her through what recovery would look like, and then Arnold asked what would happen in the very specific case that things played out like her vision.
“She said she was startled by it,” Arnold said.
But even though Arnold hung up feeling like the anesthesiologist didn’t help, it ended up being the crucial tie-breaker.
The anesthesiologist ended up flagging Arnold’s file and incorporating extra blood and a crash cart in her operating room.
It ended up making all the difference.
Arnold ended up delivering a healthy baby boy earlier than her due date. She started bleeding and had to be rushed to the hospital. She said goodbye to her 18-month-old daughter through her tears, knowing it would be the last time she would see her.
And then things ended up playing out exactly like her vision. Three seconds after her son was born, she died.
Arnold flatlined for 37 seconds, and during that time, she saw the medical staff who sprang into action, she saw which nurse was giving her CPR, she saw what was going on with her daughter down the hall in another room, she saw her anesthesiologist at the foot of her bed, and she saw her doctor standing beside her saying over and over again, “This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening.”
Arnold’s blood wasn’t clotting, she had a heart attack, her kidneys were failing, and she had to get a hysterectomy just like she had seen in her premonition. The human body usually has 20 units of blood — she was given 60 units.
If the extra blood and crash cart hadn’t been on hand, Arnold would not have been resurrected.
It turned out she had an amniotic fluid embolism — where the amniotic fluid gets into the mother’s bloodstream, a rare 1-in-40,000 occurrence, and Arnold happened to be allergic to the fluid, causing a horrific reaction.
When Arnold came out of her medically induced coma, she was traumatized. Everything she feared would happen came to pass, and she ended up seeking therapy to help work through it.
‘I woke up … and I cried, and I cried, and I cried.’
But out of those regression therapy sessions, Arnold learned that she knew a lot of things she shouldn’t have been able to know.
Later, when she asked her doctor whether she’d said “This can’t be happening,” her doctor was shocked. She told Arnold that she did, but only in her head.
Arnold had known what her husband was wearing even though he had been getting off a plane and nowhere near her; she’d known what her daughter was doing down the hall; what the doctors and nurses were doing during the 37 seconds where she was technically dead. There was no way for her to have been conscious or aware of any of that.
She had had an out-of-body experience.
“I have no explanation of it all,” one of her doctors told her.
‘I can’t give you a medical explanation for all of this. You need to go spiritual.’
What really sealed Arnold’s belief that she’d had a spiritual near-death and out-of-body experience was one little boy she saw during those seconds.
There was a little boy who looked a lot like her childhood girlfriend, and she supposed that it could have been her brother who had passed away as a child. Except she’d never met this boy.
During this time, the little boy told Arnold, “Tell my sister that I miss the way she twirled my hair.”
It made no sense to her, but during Arnold’s recovery, she called up her friend to ask if this meant anything to her.
When she did, her friend dropped the phone and just broke down crying.
She told Arnold, “I used to do it every night to put him to sleep.”
As a child, Arnold was intuitive to the point of practically having premonitions, but it went away as she got older. But the months leading up to her third pregnancy cranked her sensitivity up high.
She did her research thoroughly afterward as well. She sorted through many near-death experiences and read what other experts had to say for or against these theories while making up her mind.
Her own doctors had told her that, normally, someone in her situation would not have survived, or if they did there was such a high chance of lasting neurological damage, and none of it happened to Arnold.
Then she compiled her research and her interview with her doctors in the aftermath and wrote a book, titled “37 Seconds,” to tell her story.
Arnold knew what she saw had to be true.
She had gone through a traumatic experience, and the months leading up to it were terrifying, but she came out the other side feeling blessed.
“Not a day goes by that I don’t feel blessed. Not a day goes by that I don’t appreciate life,” she said.
Anybody with a brain (which is becoming less and less as time goes by) can clearly see that our own government is colluding with the Chinese Communist Party. What’s shocking is to what degree.
Sure, many conservatives know about America’s collusion with the CCP in regards to covid-19, trade and governmental issues. But did you know that our own government is colluding with China to ensure we abort as many babies as possible?
Why would our own government work with China to make sure that Americans are getting abortions by the millions? Because China is buying up the dead bodies of the aborted babies, that’s why.
During today’s episode of The Breakdown, Mitchel Gerber, an investigative journalist specializing in China’ black market for human organs, explained:
The CCP has been using the DNA, the organ tissue and the organs from aborted US babies to sell back to the Chinese Communist Party.
The Director of the Chinese Communist Party’s National Health and Family Planning Commission, Li Bin, announced that he would contribute $528 million to Planned Parenthood in exchange for continued donation of tissue samples.
And now the Chinese Communist Party has become the largest repository of US DNA in the world, used for the material to develop biological weapons.
So this is insane, this is treason.
Our own government is colluding with the Chinese Communist Party with biological weapons, and that’s a whole other story.
But yes, they’re using these organs for massive amounts of money and they’re doing it to take over the world.
That’s right, China is a customer of Planned Parenthood, buying up as many dead babies as they possibly can.
Later in my interview with Gerber, he explained that China is using these dead American babies to develop bioweapons and artificial intelligence, which can then be used against us. And, you guessed it, Joe Biden and our own government and working in collusion with China to accomplish this goal.
The purpose of Climate Change is to tax the air we breathe like our food, water, land, shelter, energy and etc. Mother earth provides food, water, land shelter energy and air so why are we paying for something that should be free throughout the world. I think we know. Everything is being revealed. This is about the light and darkness and we are all part of it. We all have a role in this global battle, to raise our vibration and help Co-create a new world.

Roe vs. Wade
Roe’s Death Bed Confession that rocked the world of abortion.
Supreme Court Has Decided to Overturn Roe v. Wade, Leaked Opinion Suggests
A newly published majority draft opinion penned by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito suggests the nation’s top court has decided to strike down Roe v. Wade, the seminal precedent that in 1973 wrested the regulation of abortion from the states and made the procedure lawful throughout the entire United States.
The 67-page opinion, along with a 31-page appendix, was published on May 2 by Politico.
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito states in the document.
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” Alito writes in the document, which is labeled as “the opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
The draft begins: “Abortion presents a profound moral issue on which Americans hold sharply conflicting views. Some believe fervently that a human person comes into being at conception and that abortion ends an innocent life. Others feel just as strongly that any regulation of abortion invades a woman’s right to control her own body and prevents women from achieving full equality. Still others in a third group think that abortions should be allowed under some but not all circumstances, and those within this group hold a variety of views about the particular restrictions that should be imposed.”
Politico said it received a copy of the draft opinion from a person familiar with the court’s proceedings in a pending challenge to a Mississippi abortion law, along with other details supporting the authenticity of the document.
The Supreme Court later confirmed the authenticity of the document but said the leak was a betrayal and will be investigated. The court also said the draft does not represent a decision by the court “or the final position of any member on the issues in the case.”
Justices often change their minds in deliberations as they attempt to win over other members of the court to their point of view.
The circulation of the document constitutes an unprecedented breach of Supreme Court protocol.
Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who said he opposes Roe being reversed, told Fox News he couldn’t recall a Supreme Court opinion ever being leaked to the media.
“I have a theory, and it’s only a theory. I think this was leaked by a liberal law clerk who was trying to change the outcome of the case, either by putting pressure on some of the justices to change their mind, or by getting Congress to pack the court even before June, which is very unlikely, or to get Congress to pass a national right-to-abortion law, which would apply to all the states,” Dershowitz said.
The influential SCOTUS blog website weighed in on Twitter, writing on May 2 at 9:07 p.m.: “It’s impossible to overstate the earthquake this will cause inside the Court, in terms of the destruction of trust among Justices and staff. This leak is the gravest, most unforgivable sin.”
The draft opinion is on the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, court file 19-1392, a challenge by the only state-licensed abortion clinic in Mississippi to the state’s Gestational Age Act, which allows abortions after 15 weeks’ gestation only for medical emergencies or severe fetal abnormality. Citing Roe, lower courts held the state statute was unconstitutional.
As The Epoch Times reported five months ago, during oral arguments Dec. 1, 2021, the Supreme Court seemed generally open to the possibility of answering Mississippi’s call to scuttle Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade is “an egregiously wrong decision,” Mississippi Solicitor General Scott Stewart said during oral arguments, appearing to foreshadow Alito’s words in the draft document.
“Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey haunt our country,” Stewart said, referencing Roe’s companion ruling from 1992, which held states can’t impose significant restrictions on abortion before a fetus becomes viable for life outside the womb, somewhere around the 24-week gestation mark.
“They have no basis in the Constitution. They have no home in our history or traditions. They’ve damaged the democratic process. They’ve poisoned the law. They’ve choked off compromise. For 50 years, they’ve kept this court at the center of a political battle that it can never resolve. And 50 years on, they stand alone. Nowhere else does this court recognize a right to end a human life.”
The Dobbs case is the first direct challenge to Roe in the high court since Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment on Oct. 26, 2020, gave the court’s nominally conservative wing a 6–3 majority. Some conservative court observers argue the conservative-to-liberal split is more like 5-4 because they consider Chief Justice John Roberts to be a moderate or even a liberal because he frequently sides with liberal justices when the court seems on the verge of overturning a precedent disliked by conservatives. Barrett replaced the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died the previous Sept. 18.
Ginsburg was a defender of abortion but she spoke out about the problems she saw with the Roe decision. For example, at a May 11, 2013 appearance at University of Chicago Law School, she said her “criticism of Roe is that it seemed to have stopped the momentum on the side of change.” It would have been better if abortion rights had been brought about more gradually, preferably in a process that included state legislatures and courts, she said. “Roe isn’t really about the woman’s choice, is it?” Ginsburg said. “It’s about the doctor’s freedom to practice…it wasn’t woman-centered, it was physician-centered.”
Some see in Special Prosecutor John Durham’s February 11th filing in the case of former Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussman, the beginnings of a case which will take down the “seditious criminal enterprise”—inclusive of U.S. intelligence community and Obama White House actors, and private contractors who conspired against Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and then engaged in a continuous soft coup to take out the 45th president of the United States.
Others think that Durham’s focus is narrower in terms of criminal charges—that he is after Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and the private actors who fed bogus information into a willfully blind and witting FBI and witting Obama White House, to instigate the bogus Russiagate investigations of Donald Trump. They used Washington’s corrupt revolving door of former government employees becoming government private contractors—exploiting their friendships with those still in government for private gain while remaining legally unaccountable for their corrupt and, as in the Sussman case, criminal actions. Executive Order 12333 facilitates this private mercenary relationship by outsourcing many former government intelligence functions to private actors and shielding them from liability.
As we have long demonstrated, the conspiracy against Donald Trump was hatched at the highest levels of the globalist British empire, which uses the United States as a world military gendarme for its financial interests. Its instigation involved British and Ukrainian intelligence, and elements of NATO. Donald Trump threatened them because he could not be controlled. Trump kept talking about the simple fact that getting along with Russia could be a good thing for the United States and the world, while lauding his good relationship with Putin—a man the British and their Tory contingent in Washington obsess over 24 hours a day. As with their relationship to Trump, they seem to have a problem controlling Putin, who insists on such things as the sovereignty of Russia.
According to Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s account to the Congress, as confirmed by the British paper, The Guardian, of April 13, 2017, the British began “framing the narrative” about Trump and Russia way back in 2015. The Guardian bragged about this back in the time when they thought that Trump could literally be driven quickly from office via a color revolution inside the United States. They said that GCHQ, the British NSA, with assistance from the Netherlands, had been gathering information about Trump and Russia in late 2015. Brennan told Congress that the British were feeding information about Trump and Russia to the CIA and demanding action, saying that if it did not take place, the “special relationship” was over.
In the U.S., Perkins Coie, the attorneys for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, and the Democratic National Committee, took over coordination of one side of this British campaign, beginning in early 2016, painting Donald Trump as a Manchurian candidate, a pawn of Vladimir Putin. They employed the DC opposition research firm Fusion GPS, the British MI6 operative Christopher Steele, and, as the February 11th Durham filing and the Sussman indictment reveal, government contractors working under the supervision of Michael Sussman and Neustar Inc’s Rodney Joffe, to spy on the Trump presidential campaign. Using lawyers to run the disinformation campaign shielded Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Campaign, and the DNC from direct liability. The work of this cabal was fed into the FBI from multiple channels, including Victoria Nuland at the State Department, and launched the equally bogus FBI Crossfire Hurricane investigation of President Trump and his associates and the flailing two-year Robert Mueller special counsel investigation.
In the Sussman case, Durham is focused on the false claim, shopped by Sussman to FBI General Counsel James Baker, that a server at Trump Tower was directly connected to Alfa Bank, a Russian Bank. That claim was completely fabricated by Sussman, and his client, Rodney Joffe, who used classified government contracts to mine for derogatory information about Trump. For his efforts in creating a derogatory “narrative,” Joffe hoped to get a job with the incoming Clinton Administration as chief of cybersecurity.
The primary purpose of the Mueller investigation was to continue the hate campaign against Trump while covering up the prior illegal actions by Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, the U.S. intelligence community and Justice Department, the Senate Intelligence Committee, and the Obama White House against the nation’s 45th President.
By the time Mueller launched his witch hunt, the British had already covered their tracks, submitting a report to the Trump national security team discounting Christopher Steele as an unstable and unreliable former employee. At the same time, Steele was being amply compensated to continue his “investigations” of Trump with over $50 million provided by George Soros and Silicon Valley billionaire donors through entities created by Daniel Jones, the former chief counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
As of September 2016, John Brennan had already attempted to exculpate the CIA by sending a referral of the Clinton campaign to the FBI for criminal investigation. He cited a plan, approved by Clinton, to tar Donald Trump with the Putin collusion claim in order to cover up the scandal surrounding her private unsecured server receiving classified government documents. Republican RINOs and neocon idiots in the Congress have seized on this report to claim that the real story of Russiagate concerns Hillary Clinton’s use of Russian assets to smear Trump. Preserving the hatred of Russia necessary to sustain their place in the Washington establishment, they say that this proves that Russia really did intervene in the 2016 elections through Hillary Clinton. One obvious beneficiary of this Republican idiocy is Barack Obama, who gets off scot-free in this narrative, and would lose no sleep over Clinton’s political demise.
We do not know where Durham is going, or what he has, as he has been circumspect. He speaks only through his indictments and court filings. While he may not bring criminal charges against the full conspiracy against Trump, the scope of his three-year investigation of the origins of Russiagate may result in that conspiracy being detailed in the final report he will write about his investigation as Special Counsel. He has traveled to Great Britain to interview Christopher Steele and others. He has traveled to Italy, concerning the mysterious British asset Joseph Mifsud—involved in setting up Trump volunteer George Papadopoulos for criminal prosecution. He has Mifsud’s cell phones.
With respect to the Sussman Grand Jury alone, he has called 24 witnesses, including Sussman’s former law partner and Democratic Party election fixer Marc Elias and key players at the FBI, including former General Counsel and long-time James Comey confidant, James Baker, and Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Bill Priestap. Priestap authorized the Crossfire Hurricane investigation against Trump. He has interviewed Steven Schrage, a former employee of British/CIA asset Stefan Halper, and obtained numerous documents concerning Halper. Halper was deployed by the FBI to entrap and defame Trump campaign volunteers George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, Carter Page, and Sam Clovis. Durham has obtained thousands of documents from the Clinton Campaign, from Christopher Steele, and from Fusion GPS, along with documents from the Perkins Coie firm. According to media reports he has also interviewed Daniel Jones. He has interviewed over 24 FBI employees and many CIA employees. He has insisted, as against FBI Inspector General Michael Horowitz, that there was absolutely no appropriate reason for the FBI to begin its Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the Trump campaign.
In addition to Sussman, Durham has also indicted Igor Danchenko, the former Brookings Institute employee mentored by former Trump National Security Council Russia Desk chair and Trump impeachment trial traitor, Fiona Hill. Hill claims to be able to mind read Vladimir Putin, although almost all of her projections have proved to be stunningly inaccurate. Danchenko turns out to be the main source for Christopher Steele’s pornographic and totally discredited dossier about Donald Trump, which was the foundation of Russiagate. Both Sussman and Danchenko have been charged by Durham with making material false statements to the FBI.
In Sussman’s case the false statements involve the claim, circulated by Hillary Clinton, her then chief foreign policy advisor and now Biden National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, and multiple media outlets about Trump and Alfa Bank. According to the indictment, Sussman brought these claims to FBI General Counsel James Baker in September of 2016, claiming to be reporting them as a good citizen and not on behalf of any Perkins Coie client. In fact, both Sussman and his client, Rodney Joffe, had fabricated the claim, and Sussman’s clients, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign, were circulating it to destroy Donald Trump’s candidacy. Sussman is a former high-level DOJ employee focused on cybercrimes, who was described by James Baker in Congressional testimony as “a friend.”
As with the dirty Steele dossier, the fact that the FBI was “investigating” the bogus information created credibility for the fake claims allowing widespread media dissemination. In the Alfa Bank case, Slate reported them in the week prior to the 2016 presidential election, and both Clinton and Jake Sullivan used their twitter accounts to amplify them. Sussman also went to the CIA in February of 2017, claiming that Trump White House employees were using special Russian-made phones in the vicinity of the White House. Like the Alfa Bank claim, this one also was demonstrably false.
The critical words in the February 11th Durham filing are: “The Government’s evidence at trial will also establish that Tech Executive-1 [Rodney Joffe] and his associates exploited the domain name system (DNS) Internet traffic pertaining to (i) a particular healthcare provider, ii) Trump Tower, (iii) Donald Trump’s Central Park West apartment building, and (iv) the Executive Office of the President of the United States (“EOP’). Tech Executive-1’s employer, Internet Company No. 1 (Neustar) had come to access and maintain dedicated servers for the EOP as part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP. Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.”
In other words, they used their classified contracts with the government to spy on Donald Trump, a fact the media and the intelligence community have attempted to portray for over four years as a Trump fabrication inspired by Trump’s paranoid imagination.
It is significant to note here that Michael Sussman also coordinated the fake story about the Russians hacking the DNC and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta—providing the hacked bounty to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks—in order to damage the Clinton campaign.
It was Sussman who hired CrowdStrike, the computer security firm tied to the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Lab and numerous anti-Russian operations—including the Ukrainian hacking operations and full spectrum information warfare employed in Digital Maidan and other cyberwarfare operations during the 2014 U.S./British coup in Ukraine. CrowdStrike, as opposed to the FBI, provided the forensic reports on the DNC’s computers which the FBI and Robert Mueller relied upon in the Russiagate cases. In Congressional testimony provided in December of 2017 but only declassified in May of 2020, CrowdStrike’s investigator, Shawn Henry, admitted that it could not be proved that any information was ever exfiltrated from the DNC computers by the alleged intruders. Shawn Henry formerly headed the FBI’s cybercrime division under then FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Post-Vaccination Heart Inflammation Highest Among Young Men, Likely Underreported: CDC Study
By Zachary Stieber
January 27, 2022Updated: January 27, 2022
Heart inflammation following COVID-19 vaccination was higher than expected in multiple age groups and was particularly pronounced in young men, according to a new data analysis from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researchers.
Analyzing records submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) between December 2020 and August 2021, the researchers found that young males aged 12 to 17 were the most likely to suffer post-vaccination myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation that can lead to death.
The rates were the highest after the second dose and after vaccination with the Pfizer-BioNTech jab. Males aged 12 to 15 experienced 70.7 myocarditis cases per million doses administered and males aged 16 or 17 experienced 105.8 cases per million doses, according to the peer-reviewed study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Some experts have called for U.S. health officials to recommend certain youth get the second shot of the primary regimen months after the first because of the elevated risk of heart inflammation but officials have thus far refused to adjust the scheduling recommendation, which is around three weeks for Pfizer’s shot and a month for Moderna’s jab.
Both vaccines are built on messenger RNA technology.
The rate after Moderna vaccination was lower for the 12- to 17-year-old males but higher in young men aged 18 to 24. The rates were 56.3 cases per million doses after the Moderna second shot 52.4 cases per million doses after the second Pfizer shot.
CDC researchers say most post-vaccination myocarditis cases eventually resolve but that they’re investigating reports of two deaths among people younger than 30 which may be linked to the vaccines. The reports have been under investigation since at least November, according to a presentation (pdf) delivered to the agency’s vaccine advisory panel that month.
“Even though almost all individuals with cases of myocarditis were hospitalized and clinically monitored, they typically experienced symptomatic recovery after receiving only pain management. In contrast, typical viral cases of myocarditis can have a more variable clinical course. For example, up to 6% of typical viral myocarditis cases in adolescents require a heart transplant or result in mortality,” they wrote.
Myocarditis was not identified as an issue in clinical trials but has since emerged as one of the most severe side effects following Pfizer or Moderna vaccination, with higher-than-expected rates among young men and some young women.
The CDC is working on studying the long-term impact of post-vaccination myocarditis.
The condition often prevents youth from participating in competitive sports for at least three months and cardiac MRIs showed abnormal results for about a quarter of a subset of cases three months after presentation, Dr. Matthew Oster, a CDC researcher, told the advisory panel on Nov. 2, 2021.
Oster, who worked on the newly published study, told The Epoch Times in an email that post-vaccination myocarditis “appears to be high” but that it’s “still an extremely rare condition.”
Oster and a CDC spokesperson alleged that the risk of myocarditis is higher for all age groups from COVID-19 than from the vaccines, but the agency passed on studies and presentations that date no later than the Nov. 2 meeting. The CDC’s webpage on myocarditis and pericarditis, another form of heart inflammation, following COVID-19 vaccination has not been updated since Nov. 12.
Since then, outside researchers have found that the risk of heart inflammation was higher from Moderna’s vaccine than COVID-19 for people younger than 40 and that young men are more likely to get myocarditis after receiving the second shot of Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccine, or the Pfizer booster, than from COVID-19.
VAERS is a passive reporting system that is maintained by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, which encourage health care workers to report post-vaccination adverse events. Patients and loved ones can also submit reports.
Researchers identified 1,991 reports of myocarditis submitted to VAERS in the timeframe studied, during which over 354 million doses of Pfizer or Moderna shots were administered. Only 1,626 reports met the case definition of myocarditis, and those were analyzed for the study.
VAERS data is often subject to underreporting and the CDC researchers said underreporting of myocarditis incidents following vaccination is likely.
“Therefore, the actual rates of myocarditis per million doses of vaccine are likely higher than estimated,” they said.
Pfizer and Moderna didn’t respond to requests for comment.
In another study published this week, as a correspondence to The New England Journal of Medicine, researchers said they analyzed a surveillance system managed by the Israeli Ministry of Health and found 18 cases of myocarditis leading to hospitalization following Pfizer vaccination of approximately 731,000 12- to 15-year-olds, some of whom received a second dose.
Two cases were excluded because of “reasonable alternative diagnoses,” one was said to have actually occurred in an unvaccinated individual, and two were deemed “unlikely to be related to the vaccine.” The 13 other patients were all discharged from the hospital after a mean duration of 3.1 days.
Researchers pegged the risk of myocarditis among males as 8 cases per 100,000 after the second dose and 0.6 cases per 100,000 among females after the second dose.
“In conclusion, the incidence of myocarditis leading to hospitalization among adolescents who received the second dose of the BNT162b2 vaccine was low but was higher than among recipients of the first vaccine dose and proportionately numerically higher than in recent estimates of incidence among unvaccinated persons,” the scientists said.
