While pacemakers work well, the leads carry a risk of becoming dislodged or causing infection, said John Rogers, a professor at Northwestern University, in Chicago, who led the development of the “dissolving” pacemaker. The thin, flexible device has no wires or battery, and its materials biodegrade over the course of a few weeks.


Similarly, as the Covid-19 pandemic fades, “some existing trends will remain,” said Jacqueline Gollan, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. For example, the recent expansion and use of online shopping, telehealth services, hybrid work models and technology that allows virtual gatherings will endure, Gollan said.

“It’s crazy how pervasive and how common this myth is,” Eve Feinberg, an OB-GYN and former president of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, told me.

The CDC’s numbers are also in line with what doctors report seeing in their own institutions. At his hospital in New Haven, Asnes says, his team has cared for 10 patients with post-vaccination myocarditis under age 21 and about the same number over 21. Stuart Berger, a pediatric cardiologist at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, says his group has seen six cases of confirmed myocarditis, mostly in boys ages 16 and up.
