NEW ORLEANS — The CDC is planning an emergency meeting for next week to see if there is any relationship between heart inflammation in young people and the COVID-19 vaccine. There have been between 200-300 cases of heart inflammation conditions in 16 to 24-year-olds after getting one of the mRNA vaccines. That's the platform for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The conditions are called myocarditis and pericarditis. It's reported mostly in males.
