During Wednesday’s Senate Health Committee hearing, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) grilled the CEO of Moderna about the increased risk of myocarditis in vaccinated individuals, a topic which the CEO pretended to know little about.

After asking the CEO, Stéphane Bancel about the potential conflict of interest that exists between his company and the United States government, Paul asked about the higher incidence of myocarditis in boys ages 16-24 who have gotten the Covid-19 vaccines.

“Is there a higher interest or a higher incidence of myocarditis among adolescent males 16-24 after taking your vaccine?” asked Paul.

After thanking Paul for the question, Bancel said, “We [Moderna] care deeply about safety and we are working closely with the CDC and the FDA to create -”

“Pretty much a yes or no,” Paul said, cutting off the CEO. “Is there a higher incidence of myocarditis among boys 16-24 after they take your vaccine?”

Bancel then said he has seen data that suggests the incidence of myocarditis is less common for those who get the Covid vaccine versus those who get the actual infection.

Paul immediately called him out for this false statement, saying, “This is not true.” The Senator continued to cite peer-reviewed research that supports his claim that the Covid vaccines increase the chances of myocarditis.

He also revealed that he privately spoke with the president of Moderna prior to the hearing and he admitted that their vaccine does increase the chances of developing myocarditis.

“I also spoke with your president just last week and he readily acknowledged in private that yes, there is an increased risk of myocarditis,” said Paul. “The fact that you can’t say it in public is quite disturbing.”

Paul then asked Bancel if he thinks “it is scientifically sound to mandate three vaccines for adolescent boys.”

“This is for the public health leaders to decide,” replied Bancel.

Paul pointed out that Bancel has been advocating for boosters, and said to him, “Do you know when the myocarditis is most common among these adolescent boys? After the second dose.”

“If 90% of the myocarditis comes after the second dose, why don’t we have a rational discussion about one?” asked Paul.

The Kentucky senator also pointed out how many countries do not offer the vaccine for children under 12 years old based on studies that suggest the vaccine may be more harmful to children than the disease itself.
