Like any medication, the Covid vaccines are also linked to possible side effects. Some people might experience no problems while others report “adverse” symptoms. However, a new study reports that a worrying side effect of the Covid immunisation could lead to “severe heart failure”.
The side effect linked to coronavirus jabs in question is myocarditis. Myocarditis describes inflammation of the heart muscle, the Mayo Clinic states.
This inflammation can lead to a lowered ability for the heart to pump blood, and can lead to rapid or irregular heart rhythms.
New research, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), reports that the severity of myocarditis can vary across patients.

The research shares: “The clinical presentation and course of myocarditis is variable, with some patients not requiring treatment.
“And others experiencing severe heart failure that requires subsequent heart transplantation or leads to death.”
