On Sunday, the Health Ministry of Israel stated about dozens of cases of heart inflammation determined among over 5 million people mostly vaccinated by the second dose of the Pfizer drug as Reuters reported.

"The Health Ministry is currently examining whether there is an excess in morbidity (disease rate) and whether it can be attributed to the vaccines," Israel's pandemic response coordinator Nachman Ash said.

According to him, the majority of cases were reported among people up to age 30. It will be difficult to determine a link between heart disease and vaccination because myocarditis might be caused by different viruses. The same number of heart inflammation cases was registered in the previous years.

The Pfizer Company stated that it supports regular contacts with the Health Ministry of Israel for support of data about its vaccine.
