Belgium has stopped the administration of Moderna’s Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to Belgians 30 years old and below. The European nation cited cardiac inflammation risk as the reason for dropping the mRNA vaccine.
According to a Brussels Times report, Belgium stopped using Moderna’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as a primary shot for those younger than 31 years in December 2021. The country instead recommended the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for initial vaccination despite also being linked to cardiac inflammation.
Following the advice of the country’s Superior Health Council, Moderna vaccines were reallocated for booster doses. Half the standard dose would be injected to Belgians between 18 and 30 years old. Joris Moonens, spokesman for the country’s care and health agency, said the Moderna vaccine “will be used for the rest of the booster vaccination campaign unless the scientific insights into its use change.”
Gudrun Briat, spokeswoman for Belgium’s vaccination task force, said the move was based on research showing a higher risk of cardiac inflammation. She told Brussels Times: “The decision for the basic vaccination of 18- to 30-year-olds is based on international knowledge of possible side effects. We took this decision as a precaution.” (Related: Risk of heart inflammation is higher from Moderna vaccine than from COVID-19 among people under 40.)
Briat cited international data on the Moderna vaccine’s side effects as factors for the decision. One study in Denmark showed a higher risk of myocarditis – inflammation of the heart muscle – in young men following injection with either the first or second Moderna dose compared to the Pfizer vaccine. “If there is an alternative vaccine available, it makes more sense not to take any risks,” the spokeswoman added.
Belgium’s decision to stop offering the Moderna vaccine for those under 30 followed several Nordic countries halting the vaccine over cardiac inflammation concerns. FOX 19 reported back in October 2021 that Sweden, Denmark and Norway issued warnings about the mRNA shot. Stockholm and Copenhagen suspended its use on individuals below 30 years old, while Oslo urged younger people to get the Pfizer vaccine instead.
Japan also warns of cardiac risks linked to Moderna shot
Aside from European countries, Japan also raised red flags over the use of the Moderna vaccine due to the cardiac inflammation concerns. The country’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) announced the “raised alertness” through a press release published by the Kyodo News Agency.
The Dec. 3, 2021 press release said the ministry “decided to raise alertness to ‘serious side reactions’” about the cardiac risk from the normal warnings. It has also required doctors to “report symptoms of myocarditis and pericarditis reported more frequently in young men” following vaccination with both the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines.

An article by government-owned public broadcaster NHK acknowledged the issue, adding that instances of cardiac inflammation occurred at a higher rate in males 12 to 29 years old. Because of this, the MHLW allowed individuals in the cohort to choose either Pfizer or Moderna for their first or second shot.
“The situation has prompted [the MHLW] to provide information that allows men in the target group to make an informed choice between the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for their first or second shot. Health officials debated whether they should recommend the Pfizer vaccine for all young men. But with some heart inflammation cases also linked to Pfizer, they decided to provide information that allows men in the target group to choose for themselves.”
According to the NHK piece, Japanese men aged 12 to 29 who got the Moderna shot as their first can switch to Pfizer for their second vaccine dose. However, an interval of more than 27 days is needed before the second Pfizer dose can be injected.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
