Following Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo’s advice against mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations for men aged 18 to 39, Biden administration officials must have been completely apoplectic.
In a late Friday press release, the Florida Department of Health declared Ladapo’s revised recommendations for COVID-19 mRNA vaccinations.
In a self-controlled case series analysis, the department had “discovered that there is an 84% rise in the relative frequency of cardiac-related death among males 18 to 39 years old within 28 days following mRNA immunization,” according to the agency’s press statement.
MRNAs make up the COVID-19 vaccines created by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.
The government states that a self-controlled case series is “a approach originally intended to examine vaccine safety.”
People “with previous heart diseases, such as myocarditis and pericarditis should take special caution while making this decision,” the new vaccine advisory warns.
According to the study :“With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group. Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks,”
“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health,” Ladapo explained for the media. “Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians.”
The same day as the news release, Ladapo said on Twitter that “FL will not be silent on the truth.”
Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.

“To evaluate the risks of all-cause and cardiac-related death following COVID-19 vaccination,” was the study’s stated goal.
It covered Floridians who were “18 years of age or older who died within 25 weeks of receiving the COVID-19 immunization since the beginning of the vaccination roll-out (December 15, 2020).” On June 1 this year, the research came to an end.
In order to “ensure each individual had the 25-week follow-up period to experience the event of interest,” it excluded those who had a documented COVID-19 infection, had a COVID-19 linked death, had had a booster, or had received their last COVID-19 vaccine after December 8, 2021.
According to the study’s findings, getting vaccinated against COVID-19 “was not related with a higher risk for all-cause mortality. The risk of cardiac-related mortality was slightly elevated 28 days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The elevated risk in males, particularly among males between the ages of 18 and 39, may be caused by mRNA immunization, according to the results of the stratified analysis for cardiac-related death after vaccination. The risk of dying from any cause or from a heart condition increased significantly 28 days after COVID-19 infection. It is important to balance the danger of COVID-19 infection against the risk of mRNA vaccination.
Today, I appointed Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo, MD, PhD as Florida Surgeon General and Secretary of the Florida Department of Health. He has a remarkable academic and medical career, and will bring great leadership to @healthyFla. Watch: https://t.co/7b3KnwIpjI
