Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational [Patient Registry]
Estimated Enrollment : 500 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 1 Week
Official Title: Prevalence of Perimyocarditis After Covid-19 Vaccine
Actual Study Start Date : March 9, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : April 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : April 2022

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Covid19 Vaccinated Patients
Patients who are planning to receive Pfizer-BioNTech BNT162b2 vaccines against Covid19
Diagnostic Test: Laboratory Blood Tests
Blood tests to determine liver and kidney functioning, total blood count, and troponin levels

Diagnostic Test: ECG
ECG to determine heart rate and functioning

Diagnostic Test: PCR
PCR test to determine whether patient has Covid19

Diagnostic Test: Antibody test
Antibody test to determine level of antibodies to Covid19

Diagnostic Test: Echocardiography
If Troponin level elevated echocardiography to determine heart function

Diagnostic Test: MRI
If Troponin level elevated MRI to determine heart function

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Elevated Troponin [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Laboratory blood tests will be taken before and after Covid19 vaccination and compared. Troponin levels above normal range of 0.4 ng/ml will indicate possibility of perimyocarditis and patient will referred for additional testing.
