Italian volleyball player says she suffers pericarditis from the vaccine

Francesca Marcon, player of Volley Bergamo (Women’s First Division), assured that she was detected a pericarditis after she was vaccinated against the coronavirus, which prevented her from starting training with the rest of her teammates, and wondered “who is going to pay the price ‘for this collateral effect.

“This may seem like blasphemy, but I wonder: is there any compensation for those who suffer health damage after undergoing the vaccine? I am not against vaccines, but I was never completely convinced of this vaccine and now I had confirmation (of their doubts), “wrote Marcon on his Instagram account.

«I don’t know if it may interest you, but I have suffered and continue to suffer from post-vaccination pericarditis… Who pays the price for all this? Have a good night, “concluded the player, 30 years old.

This health problem prevented Marcon from starting, last Wednesday, the preseason of Volley Bergamo, which will start the Italian league on October 10.

Pericarditis was confirmed last July by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as one of the “possible” symptoms of the mRNA-based coronavirus vaccines, Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna.

These “side effects” were added in the EMA leaflet.

This heart problem involves inflammation of the membrane around the heart, and symptoms can vary, although they often include breathing difficulties, pounding heartbeats that may be irregular (palpitations), and chest pain.

Many Italian sports federations have launched campaigns to sensitize male and female players, coaches and technical bodies about the importance of getting vaccinated, although in Italy there is no obligation to do so.

Last May, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) requested and obtained the approval of the Government to give a property right to the squad of the “azzurra” team and vaccinate the players and coaches in view of the European Football Championship.

Also many clubs in Serie A football (First Division) set appointments in recent weeks to vaccinate their squads.

Of course, some teams, such as Empoli, have detected several cases of contagion by coronavirus, among players who refused to be vaccinated. EFE (HN)
