Following over 300 cases of what the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) defines as myocarditis, the FDA has decided to place a warning about rare cases of heart inflammation on its fact sheets for both the Pfizer and the Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.

The warnings are specifically addressed to adolescents and young adults, as it is primarily among these groups (between the ages of 12 and 39) that the increased risk has been documented, mainly among males.

The CDC now estimates the risk at 19.8 cases per million within three weeks of the second dose of Moderna’s regimen, and 8 cases per million for Pfizer’s regimen, with symptoms typically emerging within a week of vaccination.

In the wake of the announcement, Moderna shares closed down 4.2%, while Pfizer fell 1.4%.
