There is little evidence to suggest a significant risk of heart failure from COVID-19 vaccinations. Current research suggests there is an extremely rare risk of heart inflammation, including myocarditis, pericarditis, and tachycardia, following COVID-19 vaccination. Complications of myocarditis may lead to heart failure. Experts suggest that the risks of COVID-19 infection far outweigh the risks of COVID-19 vaccinations.
