Myocarditis and pericarditis after COVID-19 vaccination: clinical management guidance for healthcare professional


The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM), has produced this clinical guidance to support the detection and management of clinical cases of myocarditis and pericarditis associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination. This is a rare condition following vaccination and is usually mild or stable and most patients typically recover fully without medical treatment.
