Yasmin Vossoughian, an anchor with the MSNBC News Network, has revealed that she was hospitalized in December and out of work for about a month due to heart issues.
Vossoughian noted on Instagram that her health scare began on Dec. 20 when she experienced chest pains that “waxed and waned over a period of 10 days.”
The pains “continued to get worse,” she added, prompting a visit to an Urgent Care center on Dec. 30. The attending physician told her she was suffering from acid reflux.
Vossoughian noted that the next day, she woke up with severe chest pains and pain in her left shoulder. Thinking she may be having a heart attack, the anchor rushed to an emergency room where doctors determined she had pericarditis — inflammation of the heart’s lining.
Doctors suggested her pericarditis was caused by “a literal common cold.”
The young anchor noted that she doesn’t smoke, doesn’t eat meat and exercises regularly. “I’m a pretty healthy person,” she said.
Vossoughian was discharged from the hospital after a three-day stay but was readmitted three days later. She recalled: “But that was not the end … three days later, I was readmitted when I felt a flutter in my heart like a butterfly.”
Vossoughian noted that it was then that doctors informed her that she developed myocarditis. Physicians discharged her after an additional five days in the hospital.
The Epoch Times noted widespread speculation that a COVID-19 vaccine or booster caused Vossoughian’s heart problems.
The MSNBC anchor’s revelations come as an increasing number of reports link heart issues with COVID vaccinations make headlines.
Notably, MSNBC has pushed vaccine mandates, warning that those who oppose COVID vaccines hold a “dangerous position.”
Vossoughian maintains her doctors say her heart issues resulted from a common cold virus. However, the FDA and CDC recently confirmed that pericarditis and myocarditis are possible side effects of mRNA vaccines.
Johns Hopkins University noted that while rare, myocarditis can be caused “by an infection in the body,” including the common cold or the flu.
The UK National Health Service supports the Hopkins University report, stating that “pericarditis often follows a viral infection, such as a sore throat or cold.”
Vossoughian noted on social media in 2021 that “she was fully vaccinated for COVID-19.” MSNBC’s parent company, Comcast NBCUniversal, mandated employee vaccinations in early 2022.
Vossoiughian invited her physician, Dr. Greg Katz, to share in an interview on MSNBC. Katz, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Hospital, discounted the possibility that Vossoughian’s heart problems were connected to the COVID vaccine.
When asked about reports that more young, healthy people are suffering from pericarditis and myocarditis than before COVID vaccines were introduced, Katz replied:
“Could be the season is more virus heavy; maybe our immune systems are different because we’ve been masking and social distancing.”
Katz added: “Nobody knows why this is.”
