1. Mark Emanuel Mark Emanuel Canada says:

    Compare it to even a mild case of COVID, and it makes these vaccines at least 500 times better than the alternative.

    Also, with a double Pfizer shot, that is a 0.04% chance. It is about the same risk factor as DYING during a colonoscopy.

    • John Smith John Smith Canada says:

      First, many COVID cases are asymptomatic.
      Second, in Quebec, the proportion of *confirmed* cases among persons 10-19 that end up in the ICU is 0.5 per 1000 (28 admitted to ICU out of 52000 confirmed cases).  If the risk of mycoarditis is 1 in 1000, that is much worse than *having* COVID, let alone the risk of getting COVID.
