Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - NEW YORK — The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not seen a link between heart inflammation and COVID-19 vaccines, Reuters cited CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky as saying on Tuesday.

"We have not seen a signal and we've actually looked intentionally for the signal in the over 200 million doses we've given," Walensky said in a press briefing.

She said the CDC is in touch with the US Department of Defense over its investigation of 14 cases of heart inflammation or myocarditis among people who were vaccinated through the military's health services.

On Monday, the CDC and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said they have not detected any indication so far that Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine causes inflammation of the heart, but are monitoring with “special interest” reports of cases.

All of these cases have been reported to Pfizer and the FDA.

“To date, FDA and CDC have not seen any new safety signals for myocarditis following administration of any of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines,” the FDA official told McClatchy. “Post-authorization safety monitoring during the COVID-19 pandemic vaccination program will aim to continuously monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines to rapidly detect safety problems if they exist.”

“Should any new safety signals be identified by FDA and CDC through this safety surveillance, that information will be communicated to the public,” the official added. — Agencies
