Karina Mehta, Richard Cohen, Brendan Kelly, Lars Grosse-Wortmann

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


COVID vaccine-associated myocarditis was first identified in March 2021. There have been numerous case reports that detail the clinical course of paediatric patients older than age 12 with COVID vaccine-associated myocarditis. There are still very few reports of children between the ages of 5 and 11 with COVID vaccine-associated myocarditis. We present an 8 year- old with COVID vaccine-associated myocarditis after his second vaccination against SARS-CoV-2.
