Are COVID-19 Vaccines Safe After Heart Valve & Aortic Aneurysm Surgery?

I’m getting LOTS and LOTS of great patient questions about the COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.  Many of the questions are about the safety, efficacy and potential side-effects of these new COVID vaccines for patients who previously had a heart valve replacement implanted, a heart valve repair operation and/or an aortic root reconstruction for an aneurysm.

To help educate the patients in our community, I contacted several heart valve experts to better understand the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines for patients who already had some type of heart surgery.

The important information is in the new post: “COVID-19 Vaccines & Heart Valve Surgery: 10 Important Facts“.
