Moderna side effects for under-30s are too much for Sweden.
It’s not alarming that different countries might come to different conclusions, but stories like this one paired with the zealous refusal to humor doubts about COVID vaccines in the United States make for a distrusting society:
Sweden has extended its pause of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for people aged 30 and younger due to heart-related side-effects, the public health agency announced on Oct. 21.
Note that officials are encouraging the Pfizer version for second doses. (Pfizer’s lower concentration of the active ingredient was one reason I chose that one.) The problem is we’re really not having an open and honest conversation on the topic in our country.
