Second degree AV block and Pfizer vaccination in kids

So I want to get my second Pfizer vaccination, but have Second Degree AV block Type 1 and am worried about the myocarditis.


Has anyone else had amy issues?


Also waking up in the middle of the night, going back to sleep and then feeling tired all day. Should I be worried that heart rate is dropping lower than my low HR of 40's at night?

    Hi, Witinica4, 

    I had the Moderna vaccine in April, without any side effects or problems. 

    I don't know how signifigant the risk of getting myocarditis from a vaccine is. 

    Whereas I know for certain that getting COVID could very well give you myocarditis. I had it and it still affects me a year later. So on balance, I'd bet my heart muscle on the vaccine rather than eventually getting the virus.

    Unless your doctor advises you otherwise of course.
