Core Tip A possible hypersensitivity myocarditis with a consistent relationship to administering an mRNA coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination was reported. While the actual prevalence of this adverse event is unclear at this time, the clinical manifestation and pathological findings point to a link with an inflammatory reaction to a COVID-19 immunization. However, acute myocarditis following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination was very low and mostly self-limited. Moreover, the high efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in preventing further pandemic conditions, reducing disease severity, and the occurrence of a very low incidence of myocarditis following immunization should be a strength of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine for public trust.
