COVID-19 Vaccination Linked to Fewer Heart Attacks, Strokes, and Other Cardiovascular Issues

Human Heart Cardiology Concept

Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have analyzed extensive datasets in the United States and found that individuals who were vaccinated against COVID-19 had fewer cases of heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular issues among people who had been infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.

First U.S. study to show lower cardiac risk of cardiac events in patients following SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Analyzing the most extensive datasets in the United States, researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have revealed that vaccination against COVID-19 is associated with fewer heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular issues among people who were infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The research letter, “Impact of Vaccination on Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Patients with COVID-19 Infection,” was published on February 20 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

In addition, the research will be presented in a poster session in New Orleans, LA, at the American College of Cardiology’s 72nd Annual Scientific Session Together With World Heart Federation’s World Congress of Cardiology.

It is the first study to examine both full and partial vaccination and the link to major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in the United States, confirming similar analyses performed previously using the Korean COVID-19 registry. Researchers used the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) database, the largest national comprehensive database on COVID-19. Since its inception in 2020, the N3C has continuously collected and harmonized data from electronic health records of institutions across the country. Included in this study were 1,934,294 patients, 217,843 of whom received mRNA vaccine formulations by Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna or viral vector technology by Johnson & Johnson. Cox proportional hazards, a statistical technique, was implemented to assess vaccination association with MACE.

“We sought to clarify the impact of previous vaccination on cardiovascular events among people who develop COVID-19 and found that, particularly among those with comorbidities, such as previous MACE, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, liver disease, and obesity, there is an association with a lower risk of complications. While we cannot attribute causality, it is supportive evidence that vaccination may have beneficial effects on a variety of post-COVID-19 complications,” said senior author Girish N. Nadkarni, MD, MPH, Irene and Dr. Arthur M. Fishberg Professor of Medicine at Icahn Mount Sinai, Director of The Charles Bronfman Institute of Personalized Medicine, and System Chief, Division of Data Driven and Digital Medicine (D3M), Department of Medicine.

“To our surprise, even partial vaccination was associated with lower risk of adverse cardiovascular events,” said first study author Joy Jiang, an MD/PhD candidate in the lab of Dr. Nadkarni. “Given the magnitude of SARS-CoV-2 infection worldwide, we hope our findings could help improve vaccination rates, especially in individuals with coexisting conditions.”

Further work will be necessary to elucidate the mechanisms involved from an immunological perspective and clarify the role of SARS-CoV-2 subtypes and reinfections in their relationship to the risk of MACE.

  1. On the other hand. . . “New study links COVID vaccines to 25% increase in cardiac arrest for both males & females”.
    And there’s this paper by Li et al, and the cellular basis for the wide range of mechanisms the lead to cardiac arrest in a COVID-19 vaccinated person are described. “I was alarmed that the authors considered cardiac arrest and death “common” as listed in Table 2”, says Dr Peter McCullough.
    Lots more of the same out there if you do the research.

  2. Isn’t it amazing that in studies where big pharma pays for the studies, there seems to be no ill efects from the vaccine, yet where big pharma $ is not involved, you get thousands of people who “died suddenly”. How long does big pharma think they will last lying right to our faces. The vast majority of AMerica no longer trust their doctors, and trust big pharma even less. Nice job. Life expectancy is going down while you try to save your financial asses.

    Mr. Park’s comment seems to be a general position of his rather than having a specific connection to the relevant article.

    • oh yea your right, just like this article. The vaccines is safe and less dangerous than what they claim is covidintheairetc. Yup. we ALL believe this article and what you say. For sure. coz its science. lol.

    • HUH!! What he was saying this is backass ward. You haven’t figured it out yet. You are living in a conspiracy.
      This article is part and parcel of the conspiracy. Suck it up fool. You didn’t keep up. The WHO want’s to declare another world pandemic. From what? The jab is what’s killing us. All you have to do is go to the Patent Office look up any of the so called vaccine and you will find there listed as BIO-WEAPONS.

  4. WOW… THIS ONE NEEDS A CLOSE READING. ESSENTIALLY A POST-MORTEM ANALYSIS WHICH CONCLUDES THAT: If the VAC didn’t kill you with cardio-vascular failure it MUST have given you a stronger heart! The KEY QUOTE/DISCLAIMER: “While we CANNOT ATTRIBUTE CAUSALITY, it is supportive evidence that vaccination MAY have beneficial effects on a variety of post-COVID-19 complications… ” LOL NB: “Complications” CAUSED BY THE VAC!The LOGIC(!?): If drinking cyanide didn’t kill you, then Cyanide has beneficial effects on decreasing your MORTALITY. So… drink cyanide!

    • 1)most people never read the actually paper (if they did they would see the lies and absurdity that lies in most of these paperS)
      2)If they know the truth then they just straight up lie lie lie lie
      3) save your breath, and ill save mine…coz the brainwashing is very strong

  5. Sorry writers, but this title is simply wrong.

    The title says nothing about an actual covid infection following tue vaccine. This is critical: the vaxes are undoubtedly linked to more cardiac problems in general, because they are linked to myocarditis.

    The article is basically saying surviving prior adverse effects of the vaccine may reduce heart problems from an actual infection.

  6. Well this makes sense. The unvaccinated that have had Covid-19 have a higher risk of developing covid complications. It has long been suspected that the mRNA vaccines would protect you from many of those complications too. Now, multiple studies show that they do.

  7. Pure unadulterated garbage. So many peer reviewed studies are funding the exact opposite to be true and demonstrable.

    Stop lying, this vaccine was aassive failure by every measure.

  8. Mt. Sin ai, the vaccine can help you fly, go jump off your cliff.

  9. Participating in deception is the equivalent of creating the said deception.

  10. I work for the NHS and we have had multiple staff “die suddenly” very soon after these so called vaccinations. Healthy staff dying in their early 50s in their sleep, female staff member, late 50s developing Bell’s Palsy immediately after her first jab, told colleagues she felt like her “body was shutting down”, died 3 weeks later. Make Nurses developing heart problems after their jabs, balance and ear problems, gastrointestinal problems. All kept hush, hush or course and that is just what is happening to the staff. Two of our nephews, both early 20s, one is suddenly in liver failure with a liver that looks like it belongs to a 90 year old alcoholic (doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke. The other now has heart problems after his jabs. Excess deaths up in highly Covid jabbed countries and it’s not slowing down. This article is a prime example of how these crime syndicates will lie to you for big bucks. “For your health” my ar*e.
