According to new research, vaccination against COVID-19 is directly linked to fewer heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular issues in people infected with SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.
The study, published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, is the first to investigate the link between full and partial vaccination and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in the United States.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai researchers used the National COVID Cohort Collaborative database in the United States. The study included 1,934,294 patients, 217,843 of whom received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna mRNA vaccine formulations or Johnson & Johnson viral vector technology.
Senior author and Professor of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Girish N. Nadkarni, stated, “We need to clarify the impact of previous vaccination on cardiovascular events among people who tend to develop COVID-19. We discovered an association with a lower risk of complications, especially among those with MACE, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, liver disease, and obesity.”
He added, “While we cannot attribute causality, there seems to be evidence that vaccination may support a variety of post-COVID-19 complications.”
