Amid concerns about COVID-19 vaccines causing serious heart inflammation in young people, a school district on Long Island in New York informed parents it is hiring a physician to comply with new regulations requiring them to treat and monitor students who exhibit symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest.
A parent who received the email from Eastport-South Manor Central School District in Suffolk County, New York, contacted The Gateway Pundit. The timing was suspicious, the parent said, because New York state is close to mandating the COVID shot for students to attend school.
The email says nothing about the reported cases of myocarditis and pericarditis related to the COVID-19 vaccines. But the parent found it “disturbing that they are now bringing on the new medical staff who specialize in sudden cardiac arrest.”
A study published in the journal Nature Medicine on Tuesday from Oxford University showed the COVID-19 vaccines can cause myocarditis in young people at a rate higher than the incidence of COVID-19. On Friday, a Danish study was published in the British Medical Journal that found Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is up to four times more likely to cause inflammation of the heart muscle than the Pfizer-BioNTech shot.
The email to Suffolk County parents and others mentioned “new regulations regarding Sudden Cardiac Arrest.”
“All districts are now required to ensure that nurses and coaches can address the treatment and monitoring of students who exhibit signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest,” the email said. “In addition, districts are required to make sure that all staff are aware of the warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest and what to do if a person experiences sudden cardiac arrest.”
The email came with an attachment with more information on sudden cardiac arrest.
In October, citing concerns of myocarditis, the Food and Drug Administration delayed its decision on administration of the Moderna vaccine to young people.
At the time, Sweden, Finland and Norway halted the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for younger people, and Iceland stopped administering the shot to everyone.
Also, France’s health authority advised against using the Moderna vaccine because of the myocarditis risk.
