In-Depth: Can a simple technique during COVID vaccination stop myocarditis?

Aspiration techniqueSome newly published research suggests the rare cases of heart inflammation linked to the COVID-19 vaccines might be caused by an accidental injection in the wrong spot.

All of the authorized vaccines are designed to be injected into a muscle, not a blood vessel.

Research published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases in August found mice injected with mRNA into a vein developed heart inflammation, called myopericarditis. Mice injected in the proper location, the muscle, did not.

Although experts are cautious about drawing conclusions from animal studies, the paper has unleashed a long-simmering debate about whether healthcare providers should take additional steps to ensure a needle doesn’t inadvertently enter a vein during vaccination.
