This episode of Kids Health Cast comes from our Back to Health series. This conversation features Dr. Maria Karas and we discuss what expecting patients should know about myocarditis and parents' concerns around the COVID-19 vaccine for their kids. She shares the symptoms and causes of the inflammation of the heart. She also addresses the links to COVID-19 and concerns around the COVID-19 vaccination. She also highlights steps to prevention for the viral infections.
