“There is a likelihood of a connection between receiving a second dose of vaccine and the onset of myocarditis in young men aged 16-30.”

A number of myocarditis cases which were reported in the aftermath of the coronavirus vaccine were likely linked to the inoculation, the Israeli Health Ministry announced on Tuesday evening. The majority of the cases involved young men. 

Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle which can be caused by a viral infection but also appears as a reaction to a medication.
