TheVoiceOfJoyce Risk of heart disease and death increases with Covid infection. The risk decreases when you’re vaccinated.

90,000 more deaths occurred between 3/2020 & 3/22 due to cardiovascular events. Vaccines will be available in the fall for the new Variants, don’t put yourself at risk. Why let your older child, 25-44 yr olds, succumb to cardiovascular disease, when they can be protected by the Vaccines?

During the first two years of the pandemic, from March 2020 to March 2022, there were approximately 90,000 more deaths in the United States attributed to cardiovascular disease than were expected for that span of time.

The majority of these occurred in people 65 and older — the age group with the highest risk for cardiovascular complications. But heart-related deaths also increased dramatically in younger adults. In fact, a study found that the sharpest rise in deaths from heart attack during that period occurred in 25- to 44-year-olds.

Some of these cardiovascular-related fatalities may have happened because it was harder to access medical care during the height of the pandemic. But physicians and researchers now have little doubt that Covid-19 itself was a factor. In addition to the complications that can occur during the acute phase of a Covid infection, there appears to be an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes and other problems up to a year after an infection. Experts are now trying to understand why.
