After reviewing the latest data Wednesday, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) said the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine still outweigh the risks, for teens and young adults.

The group met Wednesday, after an increase in reported cases of myocarditis, a disease that causes inflammation of the heart muscle.

Doctors say myocarditis was around long before COVID-19 – with many causes – including viral infections or bacteria. They say people infected with COVID-19 can also develop it.
