    Agnes, yes! My wife just spent 14 days in ICU with Covid. I called 911 when she was suffering with Covid at home. When she got to ER she was diagnosed with pneumonia and Afib. We were told by nurses that Afib is common side effect of Covid.

    I have been in AFIB since my aortic valve was replaced in Dec 2015. I never tried cardioversion or ablation because I have other health issues. My AFIB is kept in check with Atenolol(50mg/day) I can't tell I have AFIB unless I feel my pulse or see it on an EKG.
    I had the 2 shot Moderna vax in Feb and March. I didn't have any reaction other than sore arm and general fatigue the day after the first shot and no issues after the second shot.

    I have had PSVT for about 10 years and received my covid vaccine in April and also my booster with no side effects relating to my PSVT.
