According to a statewide study headed by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo, there was an 84 percent increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related deaths among males aged 18 to 39 within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. The study investigated vaccinated Florida residents aged 18 and older.
Given the high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the FDOH said any supposed benefits to getting men between 18 to 39 vaccinated with mRNA vaccines "is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group."
The results of this study were announced right before the surgeon general made an official recommendation for men aged 18 to 39 against getting mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
"Those with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when making this decision," said the office in its statement.
This statement also reaffirmed the FDOH's previous guidance recommending COVID-19 vaccination for healthy children and adolescents between the ages of five and 17. It added a new recommendation against vaccination for infants and children under five years old.
"Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians," said Ladapo in his own statement, referring to the analysis.

During an interview with Tucker Carlson's Fox News program "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Ladapo expressed concerns after Twitter refused to allow him to share the study identifying cardiac-related risks associated with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
"It's an enormous deal," Ladapo told Carlson. "If it had been known two years ago or so that this vaccine would increase cardiac deaths in young men by 84 percent, would they have approved it? The obvious answer is no."
When asked about why Florida is the only state that has pursued a study examining the effects of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, Ladapo noted that he sees it as "a reflection of how many things have been so backward during the pandemic."
"You would never give something to someone who was young and healthy and increase their risk of dying from sudden cardiac death by 84 percent," said Ladapo. "But the response is, 'Well, you know, COVID is pretty bad.' Yes, COVID can be terrible, but we don't give people medications that kill them. So there's been so much confusion. But yes, that was our finding and it was a surprise. But that's what the numbers show."
In a statement, Twitter claimed that Ladapo's tweets referencing the study violated the company's "current misleading information policy," which covers "synthetic and manipulated media, COVID-19 and civic integrity."
"If we determine a Tweet contains misleading or disputed information per our policies that could lead to harm, we may add a label to the content to provide context and additional information," said the company.
