- Pfizer has a rare heart inflammation side effect
- Myocarditis and pericarditis explained
- People urged to discuss with GP if concerned about side effects
- Australians still urged to “get vaxxed” — despite the health scare
Australian journalist Denham Hitchcock is urging Aussies to explore what Covid vaccination is best for them after being hospitalised with a heart condition in the weeks after his second Pfizer jab.
Hitchcock, who works for Seven News, described “feeling off” for a couple of weeks after receiving his second dose of Pfizer, saying his symptoms didn’t start to appear until the end of the second week.
He later went to the hospital where he was diagnosed with pericarditis, which he said was a “rare” side effect.
