The Israeli Ministry of Public Health then warned that a small number of cases of inflammatory heart disease reported in the country, particularly in young men vaccinated with Pfizer and BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine, were likely related to vaccination.
Now scientists from Israel are coming up with new findings.
