CDC received warnings about “large number of myocarditis cases” in February 2021 but kept it quiet
Documents obtained by The Epoch Times have revealed that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) received multiple warnings about the COVID vaccines being linked to myocarditis in early 2021, but didn’t tell the public about it until several weeks later, after they’d convinced millions of Americans to get the jabs.
The shocking documents reveal that the CDC was alerted to the issue by Israeli health authorities on February 28, 2021, through “high” importance email correspondence.
“The Israeili National Focal Point is noticing a large number of reports of myocarditis, particularly in young people, following the administration of the Pfizer vaccine,” an email from the CDC read, sent to other CDC staff emails.
It added, “Israeili National Focal Point is requesting a Point of Contact from the CDC and FDA to discuss the issue.”
Then, in April, the CDC heard from the US Department of Defense researchers who allegedly said much of the same.
One of these researchers, Dr. Jay Montgomery, told The Epoch Times that the department gave the CDC a presentation that “included our preliminary patient data and analysis that suggested to us that myocarditis was indeed a possible side effect to the messenger RNA COVID-19 vaccines (within the US military).”
Furthermore, by March 31 2021, the CDC had received 141 reports of myocarditis through the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
Despite these reports, on April 27, then-CDC director Rochelle Walensky said she had “heard of” reports from the Department of Defense about heart inflammation following vaccines, but added that “we, again, looked back in our vaccine safety data, and we have not seen any reports of those.”
Walensky’s comments also came after she received multiple email threads on myocarditis and pericarditis, including those from doctors’ reports, one of which she said was “super helpful.”
Walensky resigned from her role as CDC director in May.
It wasn’t until May 24, 2021, when the CDC finally recognized an increase in reported myocarditis cases in individuals aged 16 to 24 following vaccination.
Rather than advising against vaccination for young people accordingly, the CDC advised doctors to be vigilant in identifying and effectively managing cases of heart inflammation.
CDC says vaccine could be increasing infections
Last month, an update from the CDC showed the federal health agency has admitted that a new omicron BA.2.86 sublineage variant could be more capable of infecting vaccinated than unvaccinated individuals.
