Sign at Virginia Pediatrics Office to Student Athletes: “COVID Vaccination Affects Your Heart – If You Received Doses of Any COVID Shot” We Will Not Clear You “Without Lab Work”

“Sports physicals are done primarily to make sure you are not at high risk for sudden cardiac death on the playing field.  COVID vaccination affects your risk.  In response to worldwide experience and vaccine adverse-event monitoring, we are adopting a more precautionary sports physical sign-off policy:

If you have received doses of any COVID shot, we will not be able to clear you to compete in sports without performing lab work and possibly an echocardiogram to rule out potential heart damage.“
