Research from Thailand was shared by social media users who claimed it showed a higher rate of myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle, in young people following vaccination against Covid-19 than in previous studies. But medical experts said the posts misrepresented the findings, that the sample size was too small to show significant differences, and that the risk of cardiac complications after a Covid-19 infection is far greater than those associated with mRNA shots.
