“We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing. Myocarditis is a known side-effect. The only question is whether it is rare or common,” Musk wrote on Twitter. The comment, of course, generated a vast volume of reactions.

Why are you assuming it’s vaccine related and not a side effect of something else? Speculation is dangerous and possibly disrespectful to James’s family if people start assuming that is the cause when it is unfounded.— Danielle (@Danielledeco) July 25, 2023
Given the how frequently we’re seeing this happen, I’d think the better question is “why are more people not assuming it was the vaxx”.If there’s a potential link isn’t it a requirement that it’s investigated by the medical community??! — Unreasonable Rhino (@unrsnblrhino) July 25, 2023
Moderna. 2 shots + Booster. Young adult. No myocarditis, still jog 4 miles a day, lab results and annual physicals return normal for the last 3 years. Not sure why now all of a sudden every cardiac arrest is now related to vaccines .. but prior to COVID cardiac arrests in young…— Mario (@Mario_4411) July 25, 2023
The Heart Association’s website noted that in three separate studies, a connection between the coronavirus vaccine and myocarditis was found. The site noted that “An international study published in April 2022 found about 3 in every 1,000 patients hospitalized due to a COVID-19 infection developed acute myocarditis.” A December 2021 study said most adolescents and young adults with suspected post-vaccine had mild symptoms, but noted the long-term impact is uncertain.

The Los Angeles Times noted that it was a positive development that Bronny James was moved out of intensive care quickly. “Even for a young, healthy athlete, being out of the ICU already is pretty good,” said Dr. Cheng-Han Chen, interventional cardiologist and medical director of the Structural Heart Program at MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center in Laguna Hills.

Elon Musk used Bronny James’ cardiac arrest event to question the safety of COVID vaccines. Musk suggested the incident could be tied to myocarditis, a known, albeit rare, vaccine side effect. Yet, he offered no empathy or concern for Bronny’s health, pic.twitter.com/Do9AeVBxKB— Los Angeles Magazine (@LAmag) July 25, 2023
